“I would like to be remembered as a person who wanted to be free… so other people would be also free.”
“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.
