Three-year-old Shams stands at her home in Baghdad Iraq, Monday, Dec. 1, 2008. Sham’s young life changed on Nov, 23, 2006 when a car bomb exploded near her father’s pickup as he was driving his family home after a visit to his wife’s parents in the Shiite district of Sadr City. The blast left Shams blind and killed her mother.
Lies I’ve Told My 3 Year Old Recently
Trees talk to each other at night.
All fish are named either Lorna or Jack.
Before your eyeballs fall out from watching too much TV, they get very loose.
Tiny bears live in drain pipes.
If you are very very quiet you can hear the clouds rub against the sky.
The moon and the sun had a fight a long time ago.
Everyone knows at least one secret language.
When nobody is looking, I can fly.
We are all held together by invisible threads.
Books get lonely too.
Sadness can be eaten.
I will always be there.
