Students from an Islamic school in Malaysia, while waiting to perform a prayer
Latest update September 2009/Ramadhan 1430H
I wish to thank everyone for the overwhelming responses for this photo after it was chosen to appear on Flickr Blog. This shot was taken in 2007 when I was waiting to pick up my kids from school. Kids are always pure and unpretentious, and their hearts are as a clean as a white cloth. They are eventually spoiled by the world around them, the world of hatred, anger, greed and selfishness. We are the one who spoiled them through our own up bringing. Let us ponder during this month of Ramadhan on the future of the new generation and the world as a whole. Let us convey the message of peace and harmony, respect for each other, and share our short life in this small world fairly so that we can make this world a much better place for each and everyone of us.
