Begin with Children

  • Posted Dec. 31, 2009 by Marsha Viewed 806 times

These children live in safe, comfortable homes with nourishing food, warm clothing, and a loving environment. Would that every child in the world have the same opportunity.

Peace to all in the coming year….especially the children.

If we are to reach real peace in this world and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with children; and if they will grow up in their natural innocence, we won't have to struggle; we won't have to pass fruitless idle resolutions, but we shall go from love to love and peace to peace, until at last all the corners of the world are covered with that peace and love for which consciously or unconsciously the whole world is hungering. -Mahatma Gandhi

(All shots were taken at at my extended family's holiday gathering last week).

      Beautiful set of portraits.
      Especially love the blue eyes and blue cardigan in the last one.

      YES, they all look a lovely lot of children too - obviously - that goes without saying.

      so many pretty children / and happy /, we must remember about these children from Africa, South America and Asia who have nothing and dying from hunger, and we are guilty- we adult.I hope it'll change, perhaps, may be,.............may not?

      Lovely set, lovely children and lovely words. Why we wish every year the same things and why they never become true?
