Thai Cave Rescue

Wonderful to hear news of the successful rescue of all twelve Thai boys and their coach after being stranded in the flooded Tham Luang cave for eighteen days. If only we could show the same empathy and caring for the forgotten ones - the countless children who are casualties of war (in Gaza, in Yemen); casualties of drowning as refugees fleeing war; casualties of trafficking for sex and money; casualties of physical and mental abuse at the hand of brutal "adults", including those currently mandating and operating detention camps in the United States that separate chidren from their parents and nurturers and take them away to destinations undisclosed. Barbaric abuse and killing of children should be met with not only empathy but outrage.
