Why Syrian CHILDREN ARE SPECIAL here ?
[Thank you avaaz for the information and for the EMAIL reminder you have sent to me]
(I LIKE TO DEDICATE THIS MY POOR NOTE FOR THOSE WHO ALLOCATE THEIR TIME AND LIFE FOR THE BENEFIT OR WELL BEING OF MAINLY THE CHILDREN WHO ARE AFFCETED BY ANY CONFLICT SITUATIONS AND FOR ALL CHILDREN)
A child Miseducated is a child lost’ – John F Kennedy
He who opens a school door closes a prison – Victor Hugo
EDUCATION is a fundamental RIGHT for all children not only Sri Lankan children, Ethiopian, Ukrainian, All tribes, all societies, all countries EDUCATION is an ethical right of children of the whole UNIVERSE.
Why Syrian children are special here though we know that ALL CHILDREN ARE SPECIAL
No I am not trying to highlight them here I am purposely and intentionally writing that they need a better clam, peaceful surrounding for them to gain any layers or levels education.
They are hurriedly in need of peace and education together. They need no education without peace or only peace without the chances for education but when there is PEACE the rest is achievable.
Without peace no education they gain will be peaceful or useful
There are reasons as to why EDUCATION (Knowledge) should be shared amongst all (Children) across globe? Why is it very important?
Is it because they are the heart of any Nation
Is it because they are the core of any country?
Is it just because they are the ‘back-bone’ of any society
Is it because they are the pulse of future
All comes later at the list of importance then what comes first ‘because they are the UNIVERSE’
It is education that has the POWER to write the destiny of the world of children for better
Children are the present & the ‘future’
Every child should learn not just to stop ANY WARS in the future but to understand each and every one of them, their families, their society, their Nation and other nations better.
Authorities must provide them a better place to study, children friendly environment, peaceful surroundings, enough and enough of space to learn the things they like with ALL GOOD GUIDENCE AND DIRECTIONS of their GOOD HEARTED TEACHERS, PARENTS, WELWISHES, SUPPORTERS rather than giving them 'job oriented' training and practices at the very beginning that can wait until they become little mature in their process of choosing their own streams of learning.
Job oriented focuses can be practiced and applied especially at the latter stage of their lives.
So to layer a better foundation for children’s education a vast, a massive ‘togetherness of discussions are truly and unbelievably essential’
Learning or education is not just for ‘kids’ this very particular stage of ones life called ‘childhood’ is need very much care and attention and this is the best place, stage to layer a better, un breakable, solid concrete foundation for better education.
Education is not just something that they learn how to read and write A – Z s of the alphabet, learning or practicing to learn all qualities that will inevitably nourish their ways of communicating and sharing and loving, living included.
'They truly need to learn the basics of how to treat each and every one with some respect. Then i am sure there will never be any wars in this world.
I do not expect any children to say IN THE FUTURE when they get the chances to write the unwritten pages of histories of their societies that ‘every war that had taken place in the histories of the world is legal’ legal sides of something is always there in the spheres of the rights of education children’s right to education, the world ethical right to peace and harmony.
So can we not talk about SYRYAN children don’t they need a better place for better education?
Via providing better education for children any country can stop all viruses that kills and harms the inner sides of any groups of human.
Wars are one of the viruses. There are ways to use education for better. Education can be used as one of the better strategies not only to minimize the 'differences' of any society, any group, but also to strengthen their unity within. Then no outsider/s can harm its inner peace.
It is no point arguing ‘hey don’t you know that how many are there in this world, achieved high, highest education why is the world still showing ‘most the differences, divisions fights violence in some of the parts of the world.
May be they have not gained what is known as better education
I don’t know
I am not an expert from time to time the experts the scholars suggested various ways as to how to educate your child for better’
From every preliminary stages of gaining education there are challenging strategies to be practiced.
Every child is unique though they come from different backgrounds a child may come from Syria or Nigeria, Afghanistan, Nepal or from Hawaii to India. It is true that we all of us show some differences in skin tones originally known or named as ‘ whites or blacks’ Asians or as Africans’ or as Europeans a child is a child, a man is a man, a woman is a woman what differences that such terms show in reality?
Is it only the Asians breathe not others?
Is it only the Europeans who eat Pasta or Cakes?
Is the term LOVE prohibited in Nigeria?
Is it only the Jamaicans cry not the Americans?
Is it only the Kennedy teaches the bitterness of assassination?
Was it only the Jackie Kennedy understood the weight of the Tears not the other women who lost their men in battles?
‘WE ALL HUMAN’
We all feel and understand tears, happiness, dullness, borings, power of strengthens, eternity of peace and harmony what kills us, what expects our hearts and minds
We all understand them, perfectly I like to believe.
Who does not understand the value of Peace and harmony then, children’s right to education?
The Uneducated only
Let them learn, allow them to learn they will change the world they will for sure create a better ' VOICE FOR THE WORLD' and they surely will be the 'VOICE OF THE WORLD'.
They have to know and must learn what to say, how to say, when to say what ever they have to say, what ever differences that bothers them also will bother the others, via what methodologies and strategies that should address or talk of their issues pertaining to any sort of thing.
'ISOLATION' make no sense peace can not be achieved in isolation or alienating from other parts of the world. Ask for help when necessary, talk to your most trusted friends for help with regard to world matters or any matters within.
They might have to talk to the world what is the way for them to talk to the world if they are stunned with good level of education they will learn all of them but for that provide them a better place,
So for all those achievements education is the best tool, equipment, non harmful non violence method.
So the money that goes from any of mentioned or not mentioned societies such as Syria, not to strengthen the hearts and brains of all children but to fatten the wallets of weaponry sellers, war dealers can be stopped in the future totally.
Better, thoughtful, well planned, well designed, well understood system of education for children has the power to prevent, minimize, or eliminate most the differences of any society in the futures yet to arrive though it does not hold the total power to do it in a manner that can achieve its fullest ‘aims and targets’ when other things comes and barricade, obstacle their lives.
- Minimize difference of any level or layers of any society
Socio - cultural, economical political of regional or continental
- Attitudinal change of minds of people
What are the other things here?
The differences of the generational gaps of understanding each other , between people, already existing, spoiled mindsets of some ( though the number here is little) who are still aiming at such divisions to sustain under various categories of class or caste or other.
So it is via children through their hearts and minds we can send across our messages as to ‘ we are against war’, we are against any disputes, any
How to provide them better education is not any more a problem to this world that we live. we have enough of knowledge , experts to take care of that sections only thing is we need to plan ‘how to apply them for a country like ‘ children of Syria’ or any society that children are affected by any sort of troubles distracted by any sort of struggles , wars. I do not know whether what I suggest here is practical mainly because it is never a good idea to alienate children specially the very small ones from their parents therefore it is little harder decision to take if they agree to send their children to a different country for their ‘education – peaceful’. But this any government , state have to do with loads of care and responsibility not only Syria any other society who face similar issues first must come to agreement with any decided authorities whether they can provide them fullest security , guardians. When they are away from their parents it is no easy for others to direct their children to gaining any sort of education even via using the world’s best known strategies of donating or serving, offering , providing education.
Our country did not practice this method, what I am suggesting here therefore I can not assure this as a the best method at this moment,I do not know how practical it is for a country to ask the whole family to move to a different society specially the families with small children for them to achieve better education along with their parents until the authorities assure of security plus peaceful environ for better education for children
Syria is one of the countries of the map of this world how many other countries are there?
So let’s ask give them a hand for their children to embrace a better world via providing better environment for education.
I don’t ask other government to build schools for Syrian children to study in their respective countries all what I am asking is to let them if possible to learn at all international schools or other local schools of any country only until they reach to a peaceful and protected better safe residences for them to live and study.
According to Ms D M W Munasinghe ( senior lecturer /OUSL) At least they (insert the name of the relevant society/authorities) can take the children who ate affected from what ever may struggle, conflicts to a least affected areas and organize some suitable activities , programmes such as musical, plays , dramas, any related activities. And if possible organize what is most suitable for them after getting a picture of the nature of the issues of such children but for that they shouldn't waste much time because children who affected from any such situations need immediate attentions and care. It is not necessarily important to teach them the letters of alphabet because it is sometimes difficult but other methods such as organize programmes suitable for them is more appropriate, useful.
(Please note that above is not the exact wording or the word to word reporting of what Ms D M W Munsinghe was trying to explain I tried to get the ‘core ideas of her’)
During all what I am suggesting and writing I like to INSIST that it is a temporary , very, very temporary solution what we must do is to STOP any sort of VIOLENCES within make necessary arrangement for them to live and study peacefully, afterwards.
I know that most the famous solid personalities are maintaining ‘foundations’ for children
All of them must come around a one table and discuss what to do for CHILDREN how to use their FUNDS, how to use their resources – knowledge usefully in Syria or in Afghanistan or in any other needy parts of the world.
