They were so Young Yesterday!!

Today Frizz challenge is about “YYY”…

And I have thought about this pic I took thirteen years ago…It was in Arwad, a very small inhabitated island in Syria…

They were Young…May be happY…For sure innocent…

"Thirteen years ago..."

I wonder were they are now…

Even if they ARE at all…

Sixteen? Seventeen years old?…

I wonder what they have seen…

What they have done…

What they have lost…

The pic is a scan of a paper one…And I had written something on the back…

“But I, being poor, have only my dreams;

I have spread my dreams under your feet;

tread softly, because you tread on my dreams”

William Butler Yeats

    • True…That is something I miss from the time I had paper pics…I liked to write things on the back…It was easier to keep track of feelings and memories…I love finding one between the pages of a book may be I was reading on those times…

  1. A wonderful photo and I hope all of them are happy today. I don’t want to think of the bad. Children are so innocent–too bad we don’t stay that way.

  2. I still think of the kids I encountered while in the Army during the first gulf war in 1991 and then in Somalia in 93′ thats now 20+ years ago Some of the kids were really cool and I really hope they got to grow up and be kids and now adults.. Great pic and writeup..:-)

    • That were tough places, specially Somalia!!!
      Must be very difficult to grow on a lot of places..Sometimes we do not realize how lucky we are.!!!!
      Thanks a lot Ed!

  3. The photographer has a touch of nostalgia to it…and yes…like the thought…what are they like today? Are they even alive? As inncocent as when this picture was taken? probably not…

    • Yes…There is always nostalgia when remembering old days…And , if alive, may be their souls have been shattered somehow…It is not easy to be innocent when everybody is fighting against everybody…
