Every time I come across this photo, I can’t help but feel a tug at my heart. The way she gently rests her hand on his, as if she absentmindedly reached out for him. Their affect doesn’t look forced but completely second nature. The sense of touch is enough.
I was driving past a business here in the Houston Heights, when I glimpsed this painted on the side of the building. I recognized that iconic WWII poster before I realized it was not just any woman, but 14 year old Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was attacked for wanting an education. The words next to her are her quote, ( “I don’t mind if I have to sit on the floor at school.) All I want is education. And I’m afraid of no one.”
This is gorgeous.
