Children are innocent and fragile. If treated well, they can bring a smile to every individual's face. It is the International Children's Day, celebrated on June 1 of every year, that serves as an occasion for devoting all our attention to the juveniles who've been facing issues like poverty, racism, etc. On this day, we celebrate the rights of every child and the need for ensuring a healthy and happy childhood for every one.
