Oh those eyes! Can I bring them home to live with me? Wonderful shot – I could get lost in those beautiful eyes!
Beautiful. You have nicely captured the differences of their facial emotions.
These children’s resilience is not the same as the grandmother’s in the other picture. The young ones haven’t had a lifetime of hard challenges to mold a hardy outlook on life. The children are just naturally resilient and good-humored. Especially good-humored! My fear, though, is that the trauma of the tsunami may produce emotional aftershocks later in their lives. Members of their communities will provide some comfort then, unless they’re suffering too much post-traumatic shock themselves. I’m afraid that in Sri Lanka there will be too little professional care available for this type of affliction. So far, though, the children I met are coping very well, laughing much more than crying. We can just hope for the best as they get older.

wonderful work…..the innocence in their eyes still has a sense of rapid aging…i wish i could shelter and love all the kids in the world, brings me to tears….so many tragedies occur and the kids are affected in one way or another for a lifetime….as we know it, they are supposed to be happy, play, go to school, and just be a kids, unfortunately this cannot be in many instances…wonderful work
