Waiting for a Child's return

My Vision of Peace
Stoically waiting for a child's return, a fate no mother deserves. A mother's gift to the world sacrificed for causes unsure and freedoms unrealized. Spare the sadness, give peace a chance.

I often wonder how someone who has children can be the perpetrator of a war -- especially like the one in Iraq. There cannot be anything worse than losing a child.

This is heartbreakingly beautiful...the expression in her eyes. 'Hope' and realization mixed in equal quantities.

A mother's anguish of a child sent to war is bad enough, to not ever have them return is a pain I could never begin to imagine~

To those who continue to fight the silent battle...peace and light~

This is beautiful. The beads(may be) remind me of a rosary. Nice work!

This is a piece that not only catches your eye but keeps you captivated. Oh, my heart breaks for her just in the fact that she has a child in war much less losing them. Tragic.

Thank you. I hold my breath each time my step-son leaves. I hold my breath as my brother serves over and over again. It has aged him greatly. This is beautifully done.
