The little girl's hands

“Hai ban tay em
Nhu hoa dau canh
Hoa hong hong nu
Canh tron ngon xinh…”

"The little girl’s hands
Like two little flowers
Chubby and rosy..."

This is quoted from a poem by a famous Vietnamese poet named Huy Can. His poem describes a lovely little girl in her dance. I couldn't help but feel sorrow when I whispered to myself the rhymes upon seeing the picture of this little girl trying to write with her deformed hands.

Dear friends,
Every little child deserves to be born equal. Every little child deserves to have their hands normal, with chubby and rosy fingers, to reach for their parents' faces and to be kissed.

And that goes without question!
