    Better to supply kites than guns. This is good information Cara.

    This move me so much. Children in a war zone – this tears my heart out. Those fearful eyes cast to the sky, innocents under attack, we can only ask ‘how is this possible’.
    Congratulations on all your features, so well deserved.

  • Rhoufi, children always move our soul don’t they? tears as you say or is it me or you or us they are our heart…it reminds me of what I said to my son when I would go away for awhile that he was always in my heart. I pray for the children I do they are always in my heart
