PICTURE OF THE WEEK 22nd September 2019

“A picture is worth a thousand words”. I love pictures and I love words. I “see” what they mean, but as a writer I find a picture inspires a thousand plus words, too. And a word inspires 1,000 pictures.

This is our “Picture of the Week” but what words does it inspire.

 

The photograph shows Yemeni children attending class on the first day of the new academic year in the city of Taez. Their school was damaged last year in an air strike during fighting between the Saudi-backed government forces and the Huthi rebels.

Take a look at today’s picture and consider what 1,000 words it inspire in you?

For me I have to say I am speechless and no words come. But then words admiring the courage of those students and their teachers begin to pour out. And words condemning war but with the proviso that you cannot sit around and not respond if attacked.

Pictures do inspire.
