C is for those children under the threat of war
H is for the hopeless situations children find themselves in through no fault of their own
R is for the rape and pillage by Boko Haram
I is for the imagination of the child in the face of ongoing perils
S is for Santa Claus the one bright light in their innocent years
T is for trust in their every action we adults must show when it is most required
M is for the Virgin Mary, Mother of the Infant Jesus
A is for the aspirations we adults must have for all children placed in our care
S is for the safety and security we all relish for the children of the world.
