A little boy mimics his religious elders at prayer, the body language for Muslims of deep respect, awe, and reverence for Allah their Divinity. They pray like this five times a day and are especially aware of the Holy in their high holy season, Ramadan, which is now.
Some things aren’t worth imitating but some things are. And small children usually know the difference and show us adults—if we would but listen and look and follow.
This world right now needs to be on its knees, humble and together in body and spirit.
