Image Information and Descriptions
These images were provided by Reuters. There is a story behind
each photograph. The first image is of Acehnese orphan children in Indonesia.
One of them dares to smile... even as she sits amongst utter devastation. The second image is of a Monk who took in an
orphan as an infant and
has provided for him and raised him with love. This little child is one of the rare fortunate ones.
The third image is of hungry children, possibly homeless orphans, struggling
for a bit of food during a festival. The next image is of another little
orphan whose family was most likely lost in the tsunami. The last image is of
an overwrought Iraqi orphan youth who has been badgered and bullied by older
children. He struggles to ask for kindnesses and protection. The country of
Iraq has many such orphans, living a life of destitution and deprivation.
Note: Children and Animals have great needs. Sometimes, they are taken
for granted, and mistreated without reservation, continually, frequently,
until their spirits are broken, their hearts and lives shattered. Hurts
that occur during childhood can last a lifetime. Those who perpetrate crimes
and hurtful deeds against the innocent may not fully understand this, or, may
choose to ignore this. The individuals who commit these destructive actions
require much education, and much attention.
It goes without saying that every child needs to be nurtured with loving
kindness, tenderness, calm and consistent teaching and discipline without fear
and without prolonged suffering. Rather than beatings and harsh words,
gentle admonishments with one's "no" meaning no has much greater

Story of Kind Teaching
It regards a puppy, but could
involve a child, as well as a pet...
A wonderful woman bought a puppy for her family. This little pup wanted
to sleep with the children, but this was not possible due to health reasons.
The woman decided that the pup would sleep in his own bed, in the main room in
the downstairs area. The pup had other ideas. He wanted to go
upstairs, and responded to this first bed time with much zeal andpassion to
rush upstairs. Everytime he raced up the stairs, the woman would gently
take him back downstairs and place him in his bed. It must have taken
over 20 times of carrying the pup to his bed, that he finally resigned
himself, and went to sleep.
This went on for several days. Soon, the pup understood that he would
not be allowed to go upstairs to bed. So, finally, at bedtime, he went
into his bed, and slept peacefully, and contentedly.
The woman did not change her mind. She did not let the pup do what she did not
want. She used no harsh words or blows. She was consistent,
gentle, firm and relentless in her request. She was also infinitely patient, and took the time necessary to teach the pup with
The lesson is this. You see, afterwards, whenever the woman would tell
the pup "No," he knew she meant business, that her word was true.
He listened and obeyed without puppy argument or rebellion. From then
on, life was easier, filled with grace and peace for both pup and family.
If one is infinitely patient, consistent, and willing to repeat their gentle
admonishment over and over again, their No's and Yes's will be obeyed,
honored with little argument.
Education is crucial. Protection of children and animals is crucial.
All living creatures, great and small, are endowed with abilities to feel
pleasure, pain, joy, love, sorrow, sadness. If they could not experience
such things, they would have been plants, fruits, vegetables.
As much as some would like to believe that children and animals do not
"feel" as acutely as adult humans, they are mistaken. Anyone
who has ever had a pet, would most likely acknowledge, that, indeed, their pet
It is our job as stewards of this planet, that we be fair and just, that we
respect all life, and that we accept Truth. The Truth is this;
cruelty and harm against the most innocent is a violation of all decency,
honor, dignity and inherent nobility of spirit within us all. We must strive
to nourish and maintain the best within us. Our children are our
future. The animals are a gift, a blessing to us, and without them, life
would be unimaginably barren.
Life is precious beyond words. Every young terminal patient comes
to understand the extraordinariness of feeling. Of experiencing. Of
loving, giving, living.
Your help is needed. Just one phone call, one letter, once a week, once
a month... could make all the difference in the world. One phone
call. One letter. Thank you!

"It is through giving,
that one finds, true living."
Teaching to Give, as Well as to Receive|
Teaching children how to receive, as well as
children how to give, is a gift of a lifetime.
Living creatures, both human and animal, find
joy in the acts of loving, sharing, giving.
With the love of others around them, a child's heart will grow
and swell so that
they will overflow with good and loving things.
These good and loving things
will in turn, flow to other children
around them. And so it goes.
Join us. Help the children.
Cherish and protect every living creature.
