Seeing World through B’s Eye

Buthaina's eye 1

I drew this piece after watching and hearing the story on Democracy Now (Sept 22nd) (democracynow.org): “Amnesty International Reveals – the Bomb that Killed 16 Civilians in Yemen Was Made in the U.S.A..” The story includes the experience of the five year old, Buthaina who lost every member (16 people) of her family in the bombing. She herself wounded, is unable to open either eye, so in an attempt to see what is happening in the hospital setting around her, she pries open one eye. Her story, the fact that the bomb was made in the U.S. and the photo of her – all went viral.

About blossomfire

I've walked this life path with sweet thoughts and burning wishes, a sound sense of purpose and an urgent need to express. Shy at first, I've overcome oceans of self doubt and self consciousness to seek an audience, ears like blossoms bending to the wondering wind. I am simple now. I am simple as a way to reach out. Worlds, galaxies, pivotal people, mushrooms, spiraling whilrlpools, i'm textured and wired for communication. Simply wired for fundamental transformation. A vision. A quest. A manifestation of divine Life, Light and Love. My name means Grace. A free gift, a talent, a value from the ultimate word maker, the Infinite Mind of the Infinite One. My mind to yours. Tree to limb, leaf to belief, falling and rising and knowing at the same time. Im Nancy (Grace) and grateful to know you.
