seeing only love

Haunting story of young girl in photo (Mimo Khair/Flickr)

Check this out for an amazing photo and then learn the story below. After two days of feeling better, I am again challenged to see only love and was inspired by this story.

Over the course of her career, Mimo captured memorable moments on the streets in many countries, but was particularly moved by an interaction with a young Syrian girl living in a refugee camp in Lebanon. Mimo photographed the green-eyed girl after noticing the word “love” written out on her hand in English and Arabic.

“When I asked further about the girl, I found out she had lost both of her parents, and actually her whole family only a few days ago,” Mimo explains. “So it struck me how she could stand there, her eyes shining, and think of love.”
