On June 10th, 1942, German fascists sent troops to surround the Lidice village which located in the suburb of Prague, Czech capital. The German army burned all the houses in Lidice village and slaughtered 173 male villagers over 15 years old. Women and children were sent to concentration camps, and 88 children were killed by German poison gas there. This is a tragic scene of children being slaughtered in the war. In order to mourn the children who died in the Lidice tragedy, all the other wars in the world, as well as to oppose the cruelty and poisoning of children, in order to protect children’s rights, June 1st was designated as International Children’s Day in Moscow in November 1949.
Our Children’s Day, June 1st, sprouted from suffering, but blossomed brilliantly. Let the voice of protecting children’s rights resound through every corner of the world; Let every heart understand that children need our protection as a special group; It reminds us that protecting children means protecting our future.
Children are the newborn sun, full of hope; Children are flower buds will blossom beautifully; Children are unfolding pictures, and the splendid future needs our hardworking.
Tomorrow is Children’s Day. When this meaningful festival is coming, on behalf of our hard-working teachers and every mom and dad, I wish everyone here a happy Children’s Day.
Sunflowers grow in the direction of the sun! What direction should we grow towards? Do you still remember the motto of our Joy International School?
