Today, 20 June, is the World Refugee Day 2003.
"The days of our youth are the days of our glory". So wrote the poet Byron. But tragically, for 20 million young people around the world, the days of their youth, far from being days of glory are often filled with hopeless misery, unspeakable cruelty and heartless exploitation. Among them are the world’s refugee youth – youngsters whose only crime was to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, and who now find themselves the displaced victims of other people’s wars and conflicts."Still we should be concerned about Afghani, Iraqi and African and many other kids in the world. Unfortunately, we always in wars notify that they exist and suffer! You remember during US attack every body was talking about people who were dying!. Now how many people speak about this issue?! I think we usually forget that our mind is manipulated by media and politicians! I do not what I can say but I know many Iraqi school children still cannot go to school. But nobody cares since politicians and media can find more interesting topics. I hope it would not be Iranians school children!! I wish!
