Too young to learn hate

For Kfir Bibas
Years old

Kfir only 10 months old his brother Ariel (4) and their mother Shiri (32) were documented last Saturday being taken into captivity. Shiri was captured on that Saturday morning holding her little ginger-haired children in her arms, her face terrified, surrounded by dozens of terrorists. The video and pictures of them went viral. She and the children were abducted by Hamas, but the
faith of the rest of her family remains unclear.

From the artist

Kfir was only 9 months old when he was taken with his 4-year-old brother and (hopefully) their parents, from their home at Kibbutz Nir Oz. Kfir hadn't learned to talk or walk yet; he barely learned to eat, but he did learn the harsh reality of how cruel and evil the world could be. It's heartbreaking that children are paying the price of war and are stuck in the middle of this power and hate conflict. Every child deserves a chance to just be a child, regardless of where they were born. INSTAGRAM
