|This South Sudanese child is wearing a dress sewn from donated pillowcase and she has a whistle necklace. It was the first new dress she ever owned and she was taught by Dr. Glenn Geelhoed how to blow the whistle. Within a few days of the photograph being taken, her village of Pibor was attacked and burnt to the ground by rebel forces. All the villagers had to run into the bush for safety. When this child ran into the bush, she was at least wearing a dress sewn by a woman at a kitchen table in a small American town. And she had a whistle to blow so that her family could find her. That is no small thing.|
