“Kids’ minds should be full of smarts not guns.”
“Keep your head held high no matter the tough obstacles you face.”
“We are children, not soldiers.”
On Red Hand Day or the International Day against the Use of Child Soldiers, February 12 each year, pleas are made to political leaders and events are staged around the world to draw attention to child soldiers: children under the age of 18 who participate in military organizations of all kinds. The aim of Red Hand Day is to call for action to stop this practice, and for support for children affected by it!
