We have to fight against children becoming victims of war

My son may be fighting a war against germs and disease but it's nothing compared to what some children have to endure...

Next week, on June 4, the world is asked to acknowledge the plight of young boys and girls who find themselves caught up in conflict and oppression, in their places of birth.

The International Day to mark Innocent Children Victims of Aggression will be held on Thursday, June 4. It is a time to remember all those child soldiers, those children who lose life and limb due to landmines or bombs and those who simply happen to be born in the wrong place, at the wrong time.

I would welcome your thoughts, comments and insights on how we, as Australians and as Christians, can impact on this tragic global trend.

Please also keep my son, Brodie, in your thoughts and prayers as he experiences another stint in hospital. Thanks.
