    Mainly shot on an iPhone, but admit there is a bit of GFX in here as well.  I was going to drop this in the Mobile Monday challenge but editing was on a macbook which, while kind of mobile, is not really in the spirit of the Mobile Monday.  🙂

    Spot the use of camera for prop… nervous?  Me?

    These are the women rescued from ISIS? How wonderful to see their lives changed in such a positive way. It was interesting to watch the dancing. It's very much like the American Indian form of dance.

    Its good to see the ones that made it out celebrating life in comparison to the last news story I read about the SAS finding 50 severed heads of Yazidi sex slaves in a Isis Tunnel.

    Thanks for Posting this Chris

      Absolutely!  It is sad in the camps at the moment, because those who are left are losing hope of seeing those they thought were still captive.  There are still some making it out though, bit by bit.  I met a 15 year old boy who had been returned to his family on Friday.  He has been away for 5 years.  To say they were overjoyed…

    Chris, can't play the file. It keeps buffering. But the first shot looked great!

      I’m not sure what you mean Robert?  Are you talking about Shamima Begum, the British woman who joined ISIS and now wants to come home, although she is still defending the actions of IS?  I would see those who crossed borders to join Islamic State tried in the countries that they lived in.  In Baghdad she would get either life, or execution.  The Iraqi courts are not fond of those who crossed borders to join a terrorist organization.
