Editor's Note: Children are God's gift! And childhood is all about happiness and freedom. Celebrated on Jun. 1st, Children's Day is a festival for children all over the world. Each year, the special day is greeted by flowers and songs and Children's smiles.

Medal and success not child's happiness

On the 1st of June, the International community celebrates International Children’s Day. This is quite a difficult time for children in the contemporary world which is overfilled with information and stress.

Children hold the promise of a country's future, so there can never be too much importance attached to the question of child poverty. Don’t forget those left-behind children and rural children living in poverty, as well as starving children in Africa and other poor counties.
