  1. I completly aggre with you and I pray for Omar, hoping that one day, he will be given the opportunity to live a normal life. Have a nice day and may God bless you.


    • Indeed, God hear you, Ginette Boudreau, I also wish that God bless him. Because these artworks are made by this exceptional and kindness person with a heart of a true Muslim, I have found a way to honor his memory by setting his artworks up on my children’s bedroom wall… One day, I will tell Omar’s story to them.
