Wissam Boustany - Broken Child

Broken Child (2014) - Wissam Boustany (b. 1960)

During the summer of 2014 the city of Gaza was bombed...again.

I watched helplessly, along with the rest of the world,as horrific footage of broken children flooded into our lives.

Something broke inside me and I had to say something. We must stop justifying the unjustifiable. When will this savagery end?
This is happening in many parts of the world these days, not just in Gaza - and it is ALL wrong.

Broken Child is NOT a political piece trying to take sides...if the vicious cycle of pain and violence is to stop, truth and compassion need to be embraced by us all, above all else.

May Love Prevail One Day.
