When a newspaper’s front page headline editorializes a news story it is usually a sign that few dive a damn what’s happening in that paper. What excuse is there for editorializing this story?

Dear SBY, many kids are suffering in your country

The Jakarta Post ,  Jakarta   |  Thu, 07/23/2009 2:29 PM  |  Headlines

Indonesia is celebrating its very own Children’s Day today – a day commonly associated with games, bright colors and laughter.

However, for some children, life is far from being rosy or filled with f*tes and fairs. Some of them are even forced to beseech the nation’s top man to help them in their struggle to obtain justice.

“The children arrested for allegedly gambling at the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport will send letters to President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono tomorrow,” Dhoho A. Sastro, a director at the Community Legal Aid Center (LBHM) said Wednesday.

Back in May, the airport police arrested 10 children who were tossing coins in the airport to make ends meet and supplement their family incomes, on top of shoe-shining for a living after school.
