The violinist


Our special thanks to Brandon Allen for the kind use of his photo.*  

      Story by Chia. Native language Kurdish.

SOME people would say this man is old. But it is clear he is young inside. In this photo, his face and his hair tell us everything. I have seen many people like this. People say they are homeless, but they are not.  Every street, every corner, is their home. One thing is very beautiful. They play music for everyone; not for those who buy tickets. He is fighting with such a hard life. But when he plays, he is happy. He forgets everything and he is rich.
