ONCE HER CROWNING GLORY...<br />
<br />
An 88 year old woman brushes her hair, once her crowning glory.  Her son died fighting in Syria.  She advised him on his wedding night to slap his new wife once, to assert his authority.  Despite that abrupt  beginning, the marriage had been a happy one until his death.  Her granddaughters quietly laugh at the elderly women’s advice about how women should live.  She died one year after this photo was made, a Syrian refugee in Jordan.
