Today is Universal Children’s day. Yay for Kids! – I’m a mother of 3, by the way. Yes, I understand, “yay” is all a matter of perspective — and no, I’m not dilerious.
What is children’s day?
“… to be observed as a day of worldwide fraternity and understanding between children. It recommended that the Day was to be observed also as a day of activity devoted to promoting the ideals and objectives of the Charter and the welfare of the children of the world. … ” from UN.org
Then there is Children’s day:
“Children’s Day, was proclaimed by President Bill Clinton in October 2000. He declared that it be held on November 16th.” from wikipedia
Sounds all very complicated, or I need to partake in the afternoon nap more often. Either way, I personally think every day should be a day for children because every child is a little miracle and a big blessing…. children are our futures and they are our inspiration.
If only we could each look through the eyes of a child more often. Life might just then be a little less complicated a lot more sincere.
