April 15, 2017. Prayer Day for Children. Through the efforts of many, we now have a yearly observance: The International Day for Street Children. We are reminded of the millions of throwaway street children worldwide – children with no schooling, no healthcare; children in prostitution and armed conflict; children called vagrants, discarded and unwanted. All children need acceptance, love, helping hands, encouragement and hope. You and I and all people of the world must join together to make a better tomorrow through positive thought, prayer and blessing of all children. “We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget he is someone today.” Stacy Tauscher. Fr. Don Bosco also reminds us – “It is not enough to love children. It is necessary that they are aware they are loved.”
