In the time of crisis, the new Save the Children commercial lends Stephen Hawking’s voice to children of war-torn countries. In parts of the world when hard times are pressed upon them by war, children become overlooked. In the commercial, you hear the world-renowned scientist Stephen Hawking reading the quotes of Syrian children. Hawking states that he is lending his voice to the children and asks what we will lend our part. It is quite ironic that he is lending his voice because he doesn’t have his own voice anymore.
When times are tough, children are the last group who should be overlooked. Save the Children hopes to make a difference in children’s lives around the world. For people living in a first world nation, it is very easy for us to help out those less fortunate.
