Lojain (Lens young Dimashqi)

In the midst of the cruelty… accumulated sorrows… the chaos of painful images on Facebook… cumbersome statements… dirty politics…State imposed divisions… regional interests… and rewards by the Gulf States… current governments…future governments… Jewish agendas … the Crusader tide… Nusairis’ squalor…Shiite’s revenge… international flogging… the screams, explosions, bombs, barrel bombs, pieces of flesh and blood and echoes…

Lojain appears

A civilian flower… that reinstates the true meaning of the humanity of the Syrian people…

A genuine smile planted amidst the destruction… Shining above the [Facebook] pages darkened by all of the above … to color it…

And to restore the missing oxygen in the chaos of inhumanity experienced by Syrians…

Within several days of the appearance of her first photo in the “Young Damascene Lens” [Facebook] page Lojain became an icon for many of her fellow people who had lost hope and whom were stopped by hopelessness from continuing their journey of patience…and whom have forgotten how to smile and forgotten that God states

“Do people think that they are left alone by saying: ‘We are believers, ‘ and will not be tried? We tried those who have gone before them. Allah knows those who are truthful and those who lie.” [Verses 2-3, Al-Ankaboot (The Spider), Holy Quran]

Lojain is three and a half years old… she loves her school very much … Maybe she feels like it is her only window to the world outside the realm of bombings and destruction. There she meets her teachers and her friends … and expresses her views freely, despite her young age …

He who knows Lojain sees within her hands a small toy she bears all the time and calls it a name fitting the digital era:

(Digi Snegi)

Her favorite cartoon is Tom and Jerry …

Her teachers adore her and follow her words and the beautiful way she speaks…

Her hobbies are drawing and “reenacting the way adults talk”…

Lojain is an icon of happiness and cheerfulness … she came out of the womb of pain and the Diary of Cruelty to caress the weary hearts of Syrians and remind them of the verse, that should be always remembered:

“Do not despair of the Comfort of Allah, none but unbelievers despair of the Comfort of Allah.” [Verses 88, Yusuf (Joseph), Holy Quran]
