From urban to rural, from delta to highland, wherever and whenever, children can be victims by moral decadence and full of desire people. We should concern, educate and protect the children so that the future sprouts of the Dhamma - the Nation are raised in the love and protection of all. We need to speak up and protect children from abuse. Do not be silent because it is not only the pain of the whole life of a poetic spirit but also the persistent pain of the family and the whole society.
