End Child Labor in the Fields

Postby Ngawang Drolma » Mon Jan 24, 2011 4:46 pm

Here is a petition regarding child labor. I hope you'll take a moment to glance at and perhaps even sign it. There is a plethora of information at this site :smile:

I signed this over the summer, after ND posted it on another forum. I have read all the Human Rights Watch documentation related to this atrocious story, and would urge anyone concerned with the treatment of undocumented children in North America to sign it as well.

May all children being be liberated from suffering.
May all children be kept safe from harm.
May all children proper decent education.
May all children be raised in loving and supportive environments.

"To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget." –Arundhati Roy
