Street Children - Street children..
I've seen a lot of street children anywhere. I can't help wondering why do they need to be like that. Being one of those street children, begging for some money or for some foods. I know all of them has a family, a mother and a father. But why do they need to do that? What are their parents doing? Why can't they support them and give them a decent life. For a child as young as three years old, whose in the street, that's too dangerous and that's really a life threatening. I don't know who's to blame? Is it the government of their parents? What's your views about that?
