The Mlks are the Miraculous Love Kids-Kids that i have had the great blessing to meet these past 5 years traveling through Pakistan and Afghanistan-There are Literally hundreds of millions of these incredible kids that reside on our sacred planet-living in poverty-conflict zones-and other dangerous,fearful and harsh conditions-more aften than not when i meet them they are joyful and full of passion for life and hope for a better future-it is my humble aim to help give them a voice by assisting with their education and opportunities to learn music-recently we've begin a project called "Girl with a Guitar"-teaching young neglected girls how to play this glorious instrument-for when a kid has a melody they have hope and with hope all things are possible-in the photo below 6 year old Behishta is learning her first E chord-in 2012 she lost two of her sisters to a sucide bombing-she wants to use music to help tell the stories of her sisters and others whose lives have been cut short in her country of Afgahnistan-she also believes the guitar is one of the best ways to spread peace and good will across the world... a little visionary she is... and on we go...

There are things we must do no matter what the consequences. The Moral life is not pragmatic or rational. There are no guarantees. And yet, it permits us, by living for others, to become our best selves.

In Traveling through war torn countries and poverty stricken areas-i never cease to be amazed by the children who endure and reside in these troubled spots of the Earth-their capacity for joy is force beyond measure-in particular Afghanistan and Iraq where I now spend most of my time working to better the lives of these truly immaculate beings and to do my part to spread peace and goodwill amongst nations-and oh how they love the guitar-your financial help is greatly appreciated-in peace through a girl with a guitar-Lanny
