The Slain American children, the slain Syrian children: they are the children of the world

The slain Syrian children, the slain American children:  they are my children, your children, the children of the world. Whenever and wherever a child dies by violence that constitutes a failure of our love and a failure of our humanity.  They were born to us, entrusted to us but we were lacking and failed to protect them. Each time a child dies the light dies for a while as a star in heaven is extinguished and we are the poorer because of that .

A star is extinguished

A star is extinguished
