Originally I wanted to participate with other pictures that represent more my style.Then I had to watch the tragic events taking place in my home-country Syria and Syrian Army rolling into towns with tanks in order to repress the people's peaceful freedom uprising. I remembered the children of whom I took pictures during a journey with my family and friends at historical sites in the Governorate of Idlib in March 2008. The home region of these children is now under massive attack of army and regime thugs. I hope that they are doing all of them all right and that their smiles will come back to their faces, very soon, in a free country.
