Life Jackets Concert Hall Berlin

Can You Guess What 14,000 Life Jackets Were Doing Wrapped Around Columns Of A Concert Hall In Berlin?

 

On February 13th, the grand exterior of Berlin's Konzerthaus, or concert hall, underwent a remarkable transformation. Overnight, 14,000 life jackets appeared, wrapped tightly around the building's front entranceway columns. But, why? Amazingly, each life jacket was worn by a refugee arriving at the Greek island of Lesbos, sometime during the last few months. Artist Ai Weiwei, from China, says his installation encourages viewers to associate each life jacket with an individual being forced to start a tough new life away from their home country. Weiwei remains critical of Europe's response to the current refugee crisis and he hopes his art can get people thinking about the unenviable plight of asylum seekers! Take a look!

The Moment This Couple Meets Their Adopted Baby For The First Time Will Bring Tears To Your Eyes   Sarah Olson, mother of Zakary (aged 6) and Levi (aged 3), along with her husband of 10 years David were seeking to complete their family with a third child. When not becoming pregnant, Sarah asked herself 'What about adoption?' warming to the idea. The more that the couple prayed, the more that the prospect of adoption blossomed. Ultimately, this led to the family gaining the beautiful little Tilly Pearl Olson, which occurred in a 'stork drop' situation. This is when a couple take on a baby or child at a moments notice. So, after flying to Tallahassee on a Wednesday at 5am, they were united with their daughter that very same day. Check out these tear jerking photos below that just radiate love and emotion!
