Wheni saw these photos my heart cringed with sorrow and pain for those people and made me feel grateful for what allah has granted me. :cc
Love comes from the natural warmest
place within and chemistry is manmade
to what suits!!!! love gives us warmth,
feeling,humor,happiness and
makes us the character we are in life.
Believe in yourself and others will too.

It's a photo I took in Luxor years ago, not all the photo's are sad, I suppose the music makes it that way, when I look at the photo, I can almost feel him thinking, but what ?

These pictures were taken by my husbands friend when he went to gujerat a couple of years ago after the earthquakes there. They are on our "the orphans in need" website.

This little girl was in the grounds of her school:

This poor child had lost all her known family and is sitting in the rubble which was once her home:

They never fail to make me cry :cry: :cry:

And lastly a symbol of hope from a child in Romania:

Am I just getting old or do there seem to be more tragedies, both natural & man made these days?

I have only just found this post and I have to say the first page with the images and music is amazing. Brilliant pictures Keefy.

The 911 site was chilling and brought back that day for me, I had flown home from Egypt the night before full of all the things I wanted to tell everybody and then as if watching a film happening I saw the images unfold on the news in the afternoon, My joy went instantly and nothing I had to say at that the time seemed important anymore.

The pictures above are so thought provoking as well, I love to see images in black and white they always seem to be more potent in their content to me.

Like the one of the bread seller.

With the picture of the sheep, it was upsetting but it proves that the method of killing sheep by cutting their throats is a cultural rather than an Islamic practice. Neither Keefy nor Claire would come with me.

Just before the animal died, which i must admit was within seconds, it shook its head and splashed my feet with blood. I was mortified.

The girls had been sitting there all day surrounded by dirt and rubbish and it was just beginning to get dark. They did not ask for money to let me take the picture and were shocked when I gave them some as a gift. It shows the difference between the children of villages and those of Luxor.

It certainly is nice when children do not automatically expect Baksheesh, we found that with some children at the railway station coming back from Abydos all they wanted was for us to take their photographs so that they could see their image on the digital camera, then they just giggled. So nice.

Age comes to us all, no matter what colour or creed - but we can still wear our hearts on our sleeves (or dress in this case).

Back in 1999 I snapped this photograph of two little firends in Luxor. The girl on the right reminds me of the bread seller in Luxorlover's post.

Sorry, I couldn't figure out how to get the image in the post. I only got it as far as the 1000 words album. Maybe Keefy can help an old lady out :wf:

I have looked at these pictures so many times and the lovely music that goes with them.I feel so sad at them but if you look at the smiling faces of the children they are happy they know no different.It just reminds me how lucky the children are in this country,and more often than not they want more.
