April, 2019 -The UN has designated April 12 as World Day for Street Children. We are reminded of the millions of throwaway children worldwide – the garbage pickers of Brazil, restevics of Haiti, sewer children of Russia, the unwanted in the US and other countries. They live their lives in prostitution, forced armed conflict, beggars, servitude, child trafficking, …….They have no schooling, no health care, no hope. Some of this is due to familial abuse, poverty, death, war, disasters. Let us pray, think positively, and bless these unwanted children as we reflect on a quote of Mother Teresa of Calcutta: “The poverty of being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own home to remedy this.” You can follow us on Instagram like C3.
