Today is the International Day designated to remember the children that are victims of aggression.  While this day was started in response to the innocent children caught in the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian forces, it has grown to remember all children world-wide that are victims of physical, emotional and mental abuse.

Today stands as a good reminder that much still needs to be done on this front.  While we are all very busy, perhaps we can take a moment out of our day to help out?  A worthy way to help out can be found through World Relief if you want to donate some money to the cause of Vulnerable Children.
