Ivan with dad

This week we all shared in the unbearable grief of David and Samantha Cameron’s loss of their young son Ivan. In the House of Commons Gordon Brown, a parent who has also lost his first child, told the nation that the death of a child was something that no parent should have to experience – and unbearable sorrow. The business of the House of Commons was suspended as a mark of respect to Ivan and Nick Robinson’s moving BBC TV report said; “Ivan never spoke a word in life but now in death the commons speaks for him.”

Over 9 million children die before their fifth birthday but they don’t make headline news. To find out more follw this link http://www.savethechildren.org.uk/en/4112.htm . Suffer the little children- who speaks for them?
