Ã¢â‚¬Å“These ChildrenÃ¢â‚¬Â A Poem By Stephen Gill
19 Nov 2007
The General Assembly in its resolution of ten principles recommends observing a day every year to promote the welfare of the children all over the world. The resolution was adopted on November 20, 1959. Observation of the day varies from nation to nation. The Government of Canada designates 20th of November as the Universal ChildrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Day. The United Nations and UNESCO also observe the same day as the Universal Children Day.
These recommendations of the General Assembly recognize the need to protect children from racial, religious and other forms of discrimination, and against all forms of neglect, cruelty and exploitation. These recommendations also recognize that children need an atmosphere of affection, understanding and of moral and material security to grow up.
There are different ways to celebrate this meaningful day. Here is the way of a poet. I would appreciate if you would share this way also with others.
