鵝滿是快烙滴好耳痛

四月四日是大日子,兩個頗為「極端」的節日聚在一起。除了是掃墓祭祖敬拜祖先的清明節外,也是剛出生不久的兒童們做主角的兒童節。



兒童節,顧名思義就是以兒童權益為主,重視他們,保護他們的節日。其起源追溯到差不多一世紀之前,1925年8月,來自世界各地五十四個國家的兒童代表聚集在日內瓦舉行了「兒童幸福國際大會」,並為兒童們爭取了基本權利,例如精神上的快樂、教育、救濟貧苦兒童等。



而且兒童節不止一個。除了四月四日,世界各國也有自己訂下的兒童節,例如美國六月第二個星期日的「全球兒童節」、日本五月五日的兒童節、土耳其四月二十三日的「國際主權及兒童節」等。



比較出名的還有六月一日的「六一國際兒童節」。1942年,正直二戰期間,德國極端主義者在捷克屠殺了140名兒童,並將婦女和90名兒童押送到集中營。捷克這條無辜的村落就此被催殘。為了紀念這件慘劇並提醒人們兒童在社會上應有的權益,並牢記著帝國主義曾為兒童帶來的痛苦,七年後,即1949年,國際民主婦女聯會在莫斯科舉行大會並訂立了六月一日作為國際兒童節,並同樣以保護兒童權益為任務。



「甚麼?兒童節不是四月四日送禮物食大餐的節日嗎?」正正不是。或許香港的兒童們早有基本的權利和幸福的生活,根本沒有想到基層兒童或在地球另一方的人在過著甚麼生活。這不是誰的錯,不過,在我們有幸福快樂的同時,就更應該學會了解、體諒別人。



尤其作為教育家,在每天幫助小康家庭的小朋友出國留學的同時,我時常警剔自己不要忘記在社會上仍有很多弱勢社群沒有應有的權利。如果你同樣重視他們的話,在四月四也好,六月一也好,想想孩子真正的「快樂」應該從何而來,而我們又可以怎樣幫助他們呢?
