Bring Back the Girls!

The world always seem to be in a bit of chaos:

Around 250 girls in a boarding school in Nigeria were kidnapped and nowhere to be found!

The Malaysian airline MH370 seems to have been hijacked with over 200 people on board and no where to be found.

A ferry capsized in  seas of Korea, killing over 250 people including many students.

Mine exploded and killing as many in Turkey.

Such is the world we are living in!DSCF0047

I was reminded of Nigerian girls when I saw the sculptures of the school girls, posing outside their school. They were smiley and chatty!DSCF0016

Two of the girls, in particular, are happily taking to each other.

The sculptures of Ju Ming have again shown this quite vividly.

Ju Ming has reminded us of the lighter and happy side of the world we live in. Let’s smile and enjoy 🙂

  1. Hi Michael,
    I think most people around the world are very distressed about this situation. Canada has sent some people over to help look for them. It is terrible that women and even men have to live with this threat to their safety in some parts of the world. We will pray for them.

  2. You are right, such tragedies! It really makes us think about the world today. By the way, I adore the photos , especially since I am a fan of Ju Ming’s sculptures. Thanks for this post. — Mrs. J

  3. This is great Michael! Wonderful figurines….beautiful and so cute. Thank you for giving us a way to find something positive in this, at times, depressing world. Cheers!

  4. Yes, we’re not even halfway through 2014 and I feel as if so much chaos has happened within a condensed period of time. I also thought of the Kunming attacks, the Taiwan protests, the crisis in Ukraine, to name a few more. At times like this I feel that we often forget to be thankful and to look on the bright side of life. Thanks for the timely reminder 🙂

  5. There are still many things to help us smile and enjoy. Your posts are one of them. Thank you! 🙂

  6. Oh yes, so important to remember that the good and the positive are also with it. We need to seek them out and celebrate them, or we would have no strength to deal with everything that is so ugly and bad. Thank you for this other vision of school girls, to balance the infamous one we have all seen.

    • Hi, many readers thought we need the more delightful side of things. If I can help to be uplifting; I will be glad to share.Have a great weekend 🙂

  7. I think that this image could be symbolic for the rest of us as we think of others, especially the Nigerian girls, who are lying in a no hope zone. The more we think of them, the more our strength can flow to them, and produce hope in them.
