    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
