16 Children & Their Bedrooms From Around the World…

What did your childhood bedroom look like? Chances are if you grew up in a westernized world, it had a solid bed, scattered toys, and wall decorations that creatively expressed the type of child you were, and hinted at the person you were to become.


What you may have taken for granted, however, a large percentage of others will never experience. There’s no right or wrong pertaining to living situations, but many unique lessons to be gained from acknowledging that the type of childhood one is given has an impressionable effect on their future.


To capture the diversity of living situations all over the world, photographer James Mollison traveled from Japan to Brazil. The following photographs may be shocking, but will definitely lend insight into why equality for all is a mission worth working hard for.

All people are one – there are no borders. But in a world ruled by finances and personal status, an imbalance of powers keeps the diversity of class and races separate. This has an effect on each child being raised to engage with the world, rather than be one with it.


Becoming aware of such separation, however, is the first step to ignite change.

  1. People know that a replica watch is a replica watch and the replica watches can never replace a real one. Why go in for a replica watch when you can get a real one. They say that the replica watch is cheaper that the real one. Most of them agree in unison that the replica watches sale lasts nearly as long as the real one. They point out that fake rolex sale keeps proper time too. You should wear luxury and cheap replica watches. Deep down inside, doesn't each and every one of us want to be noticed or want to be replica watches sale and a fashion icon. Unfortunately, most of the clothes and replica watches sale that adorn the bodies of the models, that walk the ramp don't ever seem to catch up to our personality's. The clothes are either too bold or the accessories are just plain or overdone. We often tend to choose garments, that represent our motto's, our ideals and our lifestyles. Just like a home that functions as a mirror to our lives. For instance, a messy home may reflect the cluttered thoughts that rolex replica or an overtly neat home may reflect the perfectionist in us.

  2. My heart was filled with remorse and pain for the past 7 months when my husband ended our marriage and went to his EX lover because i was unable to give him a son. I was so devastated and almost committed suicide because of the love and affection i had for my husband. I searched and asked everyone i knew for help but all my efforts were useless not until i was refereed to Doctor Casera by Oliver who i met online that he could be of help to my marriage for he has helped her before. I got in touch with the Doctor and i poured out everything i had in mind to him and he encouraged me and promised to make me smile and make me live a better life by getting my husband back with his powers between just 24 hours. I believed in him and to my very eyes, my husband came on his knees pleading for forgiveness to come back and rectify his mistakes and today we are living with so much Joy and happiness. If anyone out there needs help of any-kind, get in touch with the Doctor now for he will help you out..
