I also would want to suggest, if this child's death is weighing heavily in one's feelings, to sit for the child and all suffering children. Dedicating a recitation of the Heart Sutra is also good.

On a practical note, I might suggest special effort to work with or donate to a charity or the like that is today helping suffering children. It is not possible to rescue that boy from Sarajevo, but it is still possible to assist countless children in war zones and other hard places around the world right now.
