Twenty years ago, in the foothills of the Himalayas, I met a small, skinny child labourer. He asked me: “Is the world so poor that it cannot give me a toy and a book, instead of forcing me to take a gun or a tool ?”
I met with a Sudanese child-soldier. He was kidnapped by an extremist As his first training lesson, he was forced to kill his friends and family. He asked me: “What is my fault ?”
Friends, all the great religions teach us to care for our children. Jesus said: “Let the children come to me, do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to them.” The Holy Quran says: “Kill not your children because of poverty”.
Friends! There is no greater violence than to deny the dreams of our children. Therefore I refuse to accept that all the temples and mosques and churches and prayer houses have no place for the dreams of our children.
I refuse to accept that the world is so poor, when just one week of global military expenditure can bring all the children to classrooms.

You Start Dying Slowly.

If you do not travel, If you do not read, If you do not listen to the sounds of life, If you do not appreciate yourself.

You start dying slowly…..

When you kill your self-esteem;

When you do not let others help you.

You start dying slowly…..

If you become a slave of your habits, Walking everyday on the same paths…… If you do not change your routine. If you do not wear different colours Or you do not speak to those you don’t know. You start dying slowly…

If you avoid to feel passion And their turbulent emotions; Those which make your eyes glisten And your heart beat fast.

You start dying slowly…. If you do not change your life

when you are not satisfied with your job, or with your love,

If you do not risk what is safe, for the uncertain,

If you do not go after a dream, If you do not allow yourself, At least once in your lifetime, To run away from sensible advice.

– Pablo Neruda
