Dr Izzeldeen lost 3 daughters and a niece in the Gaza conflict. He says that he still believes in peace. He said that his family was only armed with love and education.

Afghan youth in Bamiyan and all in Our Journey to Smile humbly wish to put the SMILE back on Dr Izzeldeen’s face.

Dear Dr Izzeldeen,

We, the youth of Bamiyan Afghanistan, grieve with you.

We know from personal firsthand experiences that grief is permanent and inconsolable.

As difficult as this grief is Mankind’s disappointment in the obstinate, undignified in-humanity of the few fellow human beings who would kill LOVE, again and again.

War and violence kills LOVE, again and again.

15-year-old Raziq and 12-year-old Abdul would like to specially comfort you using a poignant Afghan phrase, “Our ‘liver is bleeding’ with you (we are intensely sad with you).”

Ba-AmAn KhudA (wishing you the peace and protection of God),

Our Journey to Smile
