Today is National Child Day

National Child Day is celebrated in Canada on November 20 in recognition of the UN Declaration on the Rights of the Child and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. It is the perfect time for young Canadians to express themselves and shape their own future.

It might also be a time to become aware of the conditions many refugee children are attempting to survive in.  Graphic images can be viewed at:

For those questioning the intake of refugees into this country the question might be asked - Where would you propose these children go if you are not prepared to welcome them here?
