Mother's day - Children's day

This week has two holidays in it that are celebrated in Libya. Mother's day and children's day. Today was children's day and the kids were all excited about going to school. They get dressed up and spend the day running around the school, singing, dancing, eating and also the students are given toys.

Mother's day in my house was pretty boring. I visited my mother-in-law and brought her a gift, but otherwise it was pretty quiet.

If you click on the image above you will find a letter that was written by a Libyan woman about her son who is imprisoned in Guantanamo. The mother who yearns for her son (written by Omar's mother). Posted by Picasa
