I believe the children are our future,
Teach them well and let them lead the way,
Show them all the beauty they possess inside,
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier,
Let the children's laughter, remind us how we used to be.
Everybody's searching for a hero,
People need someone to look up to,
I never found anyone to fulfill my needs,
A lonely place to be,
So I learned to depend on me.
Those were the first and second paragraphs of my favorite song : The Greatest Love Of All, written by Michael Masser and Linda Creed, performed by George Benson, later by Whitney Houston.
I felt that the above song's lyric is suitable for today, 23 July, as the National Children's Day.
As a father, I felt that this is also a special day for parents in Indonesia, and I wish that every children would have much better loving care, protection, education from parents, relatives, teachers, doctors, government, and others in our country. That way they can grow healthily and normally like any other children in the world.
