The children in this book are refugees, child soldiers, victims of war, immigrants, and just plain kids. Despite mind-numbing circumstances, the hope in their young eyes reminds us not to take so much for granted in our everyday lives. Even before the global pandemic, our connections had too often deteriorated into sentence fragments and snapshots that bounce around the electronic ether and then dissolve. Without authentic connection we lose the primal part of ourselves – the part that makes us human and most fully alive.
“The smallest ray of light can ignite the human spirits ability to overcome. In war-torn countries around the world, Bobby Sager has discovered the transcendent power of hope through the eyes of children. Despite unthinkable violence and destruction, his portraits reveal joy, innocence and strength.” ~ Chronicle Books Review
