“You were born with wings. Why prefer to crawl through life?"

Jalal ad-Din Rumi

With all the turmoil and strife currently in Iran, it bears remembering that Iran/Persia has been a cradle of great learning and beauty. Take for instance this thought by Rumi, often considered chief exponent of Sufi Islam in the thirteenth century. Rumi was known for his frantic artistic gyrations, spawning the phrase, "whirling dervish." He was a passionate and prolific writer of poetry.

This inspiration captures what we believe is within all the children we help.
