Children are very important in the development of the world, as the common saying goes "Children are the leaders of tommorow". Remember, the greatest leaders of today were once children and a happy child makes a happy adult.
The world would be a better place if love is dominant and what other way is there to spread love other than giving. A world filled with happy people is a world we would all love to live in so let's make this possible.
With our hands joined together, the world is already a better place both for those present and those yet to come.
