One week ago today (May 25) , 49 innocent children were killed and who knows how many more injured during an attack on the Syrian town of Houla.
Today my children walk to school and will spend the day celebrating the queens 60 year on the the throne. I wasn’t going to post about the atrocity that happened to those children in Syria, but my boys thought that I should. We talked about what happened and tried to decide why such things happen and why all these years after the second world war, do we allow children to suffer like this. My boys only know the News Round version of events, but even then it is horrifying. The BBC website pulls no punches in detailing how the deaths occurred and it makes terrifying reading.
So whilst my children are celebrating this wonderful country we live in, take two minutes out of your day to sign Save the Children’s petition to Stop the Killing, which call for world leaders to put in place an immediate and legally binding “Resolution to Protect Children” that carries the full force of international law on those attacking children and other civilians.
