We remember all children
who are deprived of the joy of living and learning
because of the fear of corporal punishment.
Let us end the silence that condones violence against children
and the laws that perpetuate it.
We know that it is impossible to achieve justice and peace
while countless children suffer violence
at the hands of those who should care for them.
Inspire us to work together during these challenging times
to transform our world and make it fit for children.
And may no child be left behind.
