ALL children are humanity’s most precious resource

“I see children, all children, as humanity’s most precious resource, because it will be to them that the care of the planet is always left. One child must never be set above another, even in casual conversations, not to mention in speeches that circle the globe; to do so is to extend the world’s disasters. As adults, we must affirm, constantly, that the Arab child, the Muslim child, the Palestinian child, the African child, the Jewish child, the Christian child, the American child, the Chinese child, the Israeli child, the Native American child, etc., is equal to others on the planet. We must do everything in our power to cease the behavior that makes children everywhere feel afraid.” ~ Alice Walker
