solidarity...to a girl in Pakistan

She is 7 or 8 years old. One can see the distress in her face. Probably she is hungry, maybe she got separated from her family. But she is helping her little brother. I can see how she supports her right thumb in her left sleeve. Probably she has been carrying him for hours and her arm is tired. She has put her own scarf over him to protect him from the rain. They are both soaked....but she goes on....

My affection for you, little girl. You simbolize the best of us. I hope all goes well with you.
