A not very timely note

This was a blog I once wrote during my high school and early college years. I keep it around for nostalgic purposes, but it is quite obviously no longer updated. I am looking to make a more professional blog presence in the future, but I still like to look at where I was mentally at certain points in time.

BloggersUnite Special: "Children" by G.

Today is May 15. Today bloggers from every part of the world will convene and rally under a single noble cause; human rights. My special post today is in honor of this. I believe that as long as there is still good in this world, causes such as human rights will always find a way. And on that note, I begin my post.

A Plant begins as a Seed. When it is nurtured, given plenty of water and sunlight, and treated with care, it flourishes and becomes a strong, blooming, beautiful creature. It is the same with Children. Children, when treated with love and caring, and shown the ways to be righteous and true, will become strong and caring adults. Sadly, our world doesn't treat all children as equals. Children in developing countries who don't get proper nutrition or education, and look almost like skin and bones, live a sad existence. Children, more valuable than any resource or material thing. Children, the holders of our dreams. The child today has much to go though, and many don't come out completely unscathed. Lives torn apart by domestic violence in the West, or petty war in the East. Kids who weren't shown affection and love when they were small, and suffered greatly because of it. Children who grow up in the worst environments imaginable. Maybe we have forgotten the sheer importance of children everywhere. Children provide mankind with the ultimate chance. A chance to fix their mistakes. A chance to not repeat our misjudgements woven into our history, and be smarter than we were. A chance to solve the problems that previous generations struggled their whole lives with. In essence, the children of the world give the race of man a shot at redemption. Mankind has done some terrible deeds in its short history, but maybe the future generations will show the strength and the wisdom to learn and grow from our mistakes. Children should be treated with the utmost respect and care. They are more important to the survival of mankind than any war, natural resource, or international dispute. The people of today's world must put aside their differences and help make the world a safer place for its many children. Because with each cry of a newborn baby, human beings get another chance; a chance to fix what we have broken on this lovely blue and green planet.

Thanks for your thoughts on this important human rights issue. As the Preamble to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights reminds us, “…recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.”

If everyone had realized this, the world would have been a much better place. :(
