20 November – Universal Children’s Day

 

Universal Children's Day - Elizabeth PlaceYou’ve heard so many people say it: children are the future. And whether you yourself have children or not, that still rings true. Today’s children are tomorrow’s scientists, politicians, doctors and teachers.

Today’s children will inherit all of what humanity has managed to accomplish since the beginning of its existence, both the good and honourable deeds and the cruel wars and terrible failures. It is the children of today that will be charged with protecting the weak and vulnerable of this world, and making even the hardest of decisions in order to do so. Who then, if not our children, deserves a holiday?

This special day is dedicated to all of the children, so that they may enjoy these carefree years while they last and be ready for the responsibilities that await them.
