I believe that children are the future assets of thier countries. However, few countries really take care of children by providing proper education, housing and health care. But in many countries, especially in developing countries, child labor is very much practiced. Children cannot go the school, instead they have to help financially at home and earn money by selling themselves or by picking up from dampers suppose useful items and sell them later.
One thirh of the population earns less that a dollar a day, and african children before they reach the age of four are simply dead. It is estimated that 2,500 children in african died every day. We all know the statistics of it, but those in power do nothing to prevent those casualties. Rich or developed nations area racing to conquer the oceans and the space instead of putting their hands on a human being.
We really do not care any more. After all their lives are of insignificance. Well, that is wrong. We lucky that have food and shelter every day.
We think in ourselves first, possible in ourselves again, and nothing about anybody else.
We have lost the sense of human values. We have transformed ourselves to material items first then in humans. Dignity and family values are old fashion. What a petty.
