Mihag Gedi Farah -- African Baby
Here's my favorite young man. I'm sure you ask, why do I call him my favorite little man? The horror in his eyes reminds me that I'm not innocent. We have done this to him. He doesn't deserve the pain. He is innocent. His soul... I have some guilt in this horror.
I think of him when I know that there is hope. Some day we won't see these pictures.
