peace will find a way

To mark the first day of Shawwal, celebrate Eid al Fitr and
the end of the Holy fasting month of Ramadan, I'd like to share
the stunning portrait of a beautiful Yemeni girl wearing traditional
costume and beaded jewelry. Superbly timeless, Yemeni silver
jewelry evokes the style and workmanship of the ancient
kingdom of Saba: in truth, the picture was taken exactly one
month ago by renowned photographer Hani Mohammed in the
old city of Sanaa during a festival for children welcoming the
beginning of Ramadan. Hani documents Mideast daily life and
troubles through vigorous images published worldwide by leading
newspapers and agencies. In hopes that peace, like beauty,
will find its way throughout the region, Eid Mubarak!
