Poetry Prompts - Courageously Speaking for Children

“Take the blinders from your vision
take the padding from your ears

and confess you've heard me crying 

and admit you've seen my tears.” 

They announced the winners of the Nobel Peace Prize today, Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi.  Both recipients represent those that are trying to create a better world for all children. Malala Yousafzai survived being shot for speaking out for education for female children not just male children and continuing to advocate for education for all. The second recipient, Kailash Satyarthi, for campaigning for the rights of children and the end of human trafficking.
