“I would like to be remembered as a person who wanted to be free… so other people would be also free.”
2014 World Vision/photo by Jon Warren
“Sonali twirls outside a Child-Friendly Space across the street from a brothel in Bangladesh where her mother works. I love this moment because her carefree dancing and beautiful dress reflect who Sonali is inside. Her name means “golden.”
Painting #5 of my art project series. I just loved this photo of this little girl "Sonali" twirling in her own little world in the middle of a brothel. I am so thankful for World Vision’s child friendly spaces to keep her safe because of sponsors that are willing to sponsor children at risk! https://www.worldvision.org/child-protection-news-stories/child-friendly-spaces-help-children-childhood My husband asked me why I picked a photo that was so difficult. and of course I said I like to torture myself. :) but really, it is part of the story, a story of “freedom” for a child just being a little light in a dark world.
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me,because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind,to set the oppressed free,
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
