    1. It is heart-breaking to see these little children struggle and fight through life each day, when they should be playing without a care.

      An intense story caught in just six words, Gil. And the photo… I want to grab the kid, pull him through my screen and shelter him from all pain and hurt.

      Thank you so much for participating. I have added you to my post:

      Warm regards,


      1. Oh goodness. Would love to say yes but I would have to think really hard how to fit this in with my general stuff. Oh boy, this is going to require some serious mental gymnastics and probably a whole lot of running around trying to take appropriate pictures. If I come up with anything, I’ll definitely join in.


        1. Hehehe, I can almost see you running around 😉
          The focus is on the story, not on the photo, Susan. You can also write a story and then find a picture online. And you have two weeks to think of something. Even longer, since the challenges stay open.
          Perhaps one night you’ll wake up with six tiny words in your head, which you can’t get out anymore. Then is the time to write your story 😀
