An article to bring awareness to the society that there are a lot more individuals in need of our guidance and helping hands.

The Playground

Writing, photography, music, showbiz industry, and some other artistic ways of expression can be used to air concerns on certain aspects in the society that people demand for eyes, ears, and helping hands.

In many newspapers these days found are write-ups and photographs of major societal problems and one of them tackles about the children making use of random streets their playgrounds. Where are their guardians? Doesn't it reflect the character and image of the adults? I believe it doesn't take a genius to realize the wrongness for them to play in such dangerous zones.

Can you imagine how envious these kids are upon seeing the beautiful pets inside air conditioned vehicles, strolling inside the malls, and eating delicious foods? These pets are well taken care of by the people who make sure they remain healthy and gorgeous while there are many street children starving without choice. Those that are only mere victims of the wrong doings of the adults.

At this point, one can say life is indeed unfair. I believe that these children also have the right to be treated fairly. They have the right to enjoy their childhood days like the others. They didn't choose to suffer like this and they should not pay whatever mistakes the adults made. They are the ones most in need of our attention and actions.

I know this writing can only remain here unless we try to understand, internalize and put our learning and understanding into actions. Let it be our driving force to extend our help to those in need. Let's take the step and give these children the appropriate grounds to play.

It is sad when a town,city or even neighborhoods,
do not put money aside for kids to have a safe place to play.
I find that my kids had a great playground, it is called the woods and their imaginations..
We worked hard to have been able to provide for them a great place in the country to play.
I also was a girl scout troop leader and with the girls, we did a lot of good around our town.
More so then just play grounds, kids need safe mentors and to be quite honest, there parents attention and guidance more so than a slide or a swing set.
Good article.
