This is a tribute to the children of these two countries. The earth quakes & floods these countries experienced recently, again showed how the people are suffering!

    great portrait though………….

  • No not mine, but this is dedicated to the children of Peru and the little ones in Mexico. The earth quakes & floods recently in those two countries meant that they are suffering! Thanks for your visit! ?
