On Mirrors Upon Which No Dust Has Fallen: Young children

"The hearts of all children are of the utmost purity. They are mirrors upon which no dust has fallen. But this purity is on account of weakness and innocence, not on account of any strength and testing, for as this is the early period of their childhood, their hearts and minds are unsullied by the world. They cannot display any great intelligence. They have neither hypocrisy nor deceit. This is on account of the child's weakness, whereas man becomes pure through his strength." - Abdu'l-Baha
These pictures were taken by Chris at the Gig Harbor children's class. The teacher is Tahirih. -gw
