Last year I had the opportunity to volunteer with Syrian refugees in Greece when an 11-year-old girl gave me a black and white drawing of her home back in Syria. The girl explained how much she loved to sit outside and watch the train, and that the mountains were farther away. She asked me if I would help reunite her with her dad. I saved the drawing and in honor of the girl, I created this image with my daughter as a model and helped her paint the color side of the image. I think that it is probably the way that beautiful girl would have painted it if she had color pencils – her happy life.
