This month I’m participating in UNICEF’s “Tiny Stories: For Every Child” campaign to highlight child rights and the 70th anniversary of UNICEF in December.
For Every Child
For the Afghan child in rags who rummages through the garbage
For the hungry girl who stands at the traffic light begging for coins
For the little boy who hunches over a machine in a factory
For the girl-child who stands in the doorway with another child on her hip
For the baby who isn’t wanted because she’s another mouth to feed
For the boys and girls who don’t go to school because it’s not safe
I want them all in a field of flowers, playing.
