The art of being a warrior is to balance the wonder and the terror of being alive.

They Still Draw Pictures

They Still Draw Pictures

May 28, 2022-- ""They still draw pictures!" So wrote the editors of an influential collection of childrens art that was compiled in 1938 during the Spanish Civil War. Eighty years later, war continues to upend children's lives in Ukraine, Yemen and elsewhere. In January, UNICEF projected that 177 million children worldwide would require assistance due to war and political instability in 2022. This included 12 million children in Yemen, 6.5 million in Syria and 5 million in Myanmar. The Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 added 7 million more children to this number. To date, more than half of Ukraine's children have been internally or externally displaced. Many more have faced disruptions to education, health care and home life. And yet they, too, still draw pictures." (2066 reads)
