In Saudi and Yemen there are countless child bride stories. Yemen has a law that states the age of marriage is 15, but it is rarely enforced. Child brides often married off before they even reach their teen years. Will Yemen ever change?

In a world of politics covers one hand over another, it's doubtful at this time and unfortunate - painfully.

There are so many layers governing issues and personally can only come from a restricted experience myself, getting out on my own.

It will be difficult to turn that around, though common sense should just stand that a 15 yr old child should be exploring life not chained to another's decision.

I wish with all my heart all people would open their eyes and think with both mind, heart and utilize the body to do the works that needs to be done.

There's always tomorrow or well..."Where Dreams May Come." My heart goes out to these children to desperately.
