Convention of Rights of the Child ignored

Nov. 11 is when I remember my father and what he and others fought for.

However, since 1924, passed by the League of Nations and adopted Nov. 20, 1989 by the General Assembly of the United Nations, the Convention of the Rights of the Child has been ignored; my father would be turning over in his grave.

It was signed by 195 countries and Article 42 reads: “States Parties undertake to make the principles and provisions of the Convention widely known by active means, to adults and children alike.”

Nov. 20 is not the Day of the Child, but the Rights of the Child Day.
