Marbles “The marbles in the bag are in all the colours of the planets. I think the world and all our planets are marbles in another world. When the bag is open, it means the day has begun. When the bag is closed, it is night time. When war is upon us, it means the bag has split, and the earth has rolled out into a dark corner, but when wars end, happiness fills our hearts. Earth has been helped back into the bag again. Day and night will pass peacefully.” Asmara is in Year 6
Flying hearts of love “This picture shows what ‘open minded’ means. It has different people playing together, and the religious symbols show that every person is the same. I have put on the picture words that show how we can open our minds: respect, adventure, peace, helpful, care, try new things. I chose this design because it shows how people try to be nice to each other: you need to care about people from other religions too. My favorite thing about my picture is the hearts, because it looks as if they are flying and they show love.” Melinda is 8
Here we come Allah Here we come to serve you Here we come. No partner do you have All praise to you The universe is yours Here we come Allah, here we come. The world is a very, very big house Many people living in many rooms We must open all the doors up We must unlock them all today Throw all the keys away Oceans and mountains divide us But the same fire burns inside us We must throw the world behind us With Allah is where you’ll find us.
