Rebel Voice has written extensively about the issue of migrant children being abducted by the Federal Authorities of the United States. There are those who deem such abhorrent behaviour to be acceptable. They excuse it by blaming the parents of the children for bringing them into a country without the appropriate paperwork.

Rebel Voice becomes nauseated every time a report emerges of further suffering heaped upon children around our world. Surely there can be no greater crime than to facilitate the abuse, whether directly or indirectly, of the young.

We wish only to say that most of us only think we have problems. Then we see a little boy from Indonesia who hasn’t got the full use of his legs, and must walk on his hands to get around. He does so uncomplaining. His courage, patience and tenacity should be a lesson to us all. Say hello to Mukhlis Abdul Holik, one of life’s young heroes.
