"I don't remember who said this, but there really are places in the heart  you don't even know exist until you love a child."

(Anne Lamont)

"Young bodies are like tender plants, which grow and become hardened to whatever shape you've trained them."

(Desiderus Erasmus)

This is what children the world over should look like, not sitting blood soaked,  
dazed and frightened in the back of an ambulance like little Omran Daqneesh in Aleppo. As we become more sophisticated we become more barbaric , I dispair.


  1. Hear, hear! My fist glance at that boy's face was on tv and I did my best to look away....but that image stayed with me, and when I saw it again on my morning newspaper, I studied it deeply. It is such a powerfully communicative image. So much needs changing in our world.

  2. Sadly, I have to agree... we just keep repeating atrocities.

  3. A lovely portrait of innocence and excitement.
