Art represents the hidden voice of the voiceless. This image portrays what a thousand words would be unable to describe.
The first thought that comes to my mind when i see children is how they all have innocence flowing on their face. Their tiny steps as they rush to hug their loved ones. No one can deny that they truly are a blessing from God.
While some are flourished with healthy food, toys, new clothes and a loving atmosphere others are forced into slavery and forced labor at an early age. Their innocent faces are covered by dust and dirt from heavy work. Their delicate hands covered with bruises. Their tiny feet with bleeding wounds. Their flesh devoid of any clothing or clad in rags.
While going about their daily life of darkness, hunger and pain the only solace is getting a glimpse of a normal childhood; something they are entitled to; something which is snatched from them.
“Get away”, “Get Lost”, “You Filthy brat” are words they hear everyday. When they do as much as touch a toy a privileged child has it is pulled away from them with beatings and insults.
ALL CHILDREN REGARDLESS OF THEIR AGE, GENDER, RELIGION , GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION AND ANY OTHER VARIABLE DESERVE TO LIVE.
CHILDREN ARE NOT SLAVES OR MEANS OF OBTAINING CHEAP LABOR.
WE ALL ARE RESPONSIBLE TO ENSURE OUR CHILDREN ARE HAPPY AND FREE FROM BONDAGE.
