  1. The photos of the women in the Afghan war are indeed shocking, but thank you, Frizz, for the happy image above. We have to hope, don’t we, and that little girl embodies hope.

    • hi Tish,
      in every nation are parents, wishing that their children might have a peaceful future – and the chance to learn and work on a quality level … – and you worked well for such a goal, writing children’s books in Africa …

  2. Phew, the pictures of the women in Afghanistan go straight to the heart and are very emotional. Thank you for the link and the the picture of the little girl playing chess. As Tish said – there is hope, or as we say in German: Die Hoffnung stirbt zuletzt!
    Have a HAPPY Sunday 🙂
