Children Have Human Rights Too, Why Are They Exploited Daily?

Universal Declaration of Human RightsUniversal Declaration of Human Rights (Photo credit: Jordan Lewin)According to the Geneva Convention on the Rights of the Child, and the United Nations Universal Declaration of the Rights of the Child every child on this earth has certain unalienable rights as a human being. Specifically these rights encompass the child's right to education, to be free from harm, to live with their parents, to be free from trafficking and abuse, and from neglect.   They are also suppose to be free of environments that foster racial, religious, or discrimination of any kind.  If this is true, why are we reading about all of these things in our daily news?  When will we as human beings collectively stand together to stamp out this abuse?
