Each of us shares responsibility for the protection and care of the most vulnerable, especially our children. Globally, children find themselves in places of increasing risk, facing the challenges of migration, poverty, violence and unequal access to educational opportunities.
In every way possible, we are called to be those adults who create a world that is worthy of our children. Let us gather together on behalf of the children of the world, unifying our resources and placing our efforts in solidarity for the sake of those who will inherit the consequences of the decisions we make.
Let us take action in this National Child Abuse Prevention Month with courage, compassion and conviction.
