110/365 Hopes, Wishes, and Dreams (Amman, Jordan)

110/365 – Hopes, Wishes, and Dreams

I always enjoy handmade art, even more so when it’s been created by children.  At times the crayon filled papers express a raw innocence, filled with hopes, wishes, and dreams, while at other times showing  the darker things they’ve seen or experienced.  What make the masterpieces in this particular picture a little more unique is that they were all created by Syrian refugee children.  What I found incredibly moving is that despite the horrors of war that they’ve undoubtedly experienced, the children were hopeful, expressing love for a new land and building dreams upon the rubble of their former lives in Syria.  These brave, beautiful children are the very definition of love and resilience.
