Hamidullah, 12, and Rahmatullah, 10, have nearly everything in common. They have the same haircuts, the same blue uniforms, the same jokes, the same notebooks with sailboats and convertibles on the cover.

God bless all at this orphanage (the Sheikh Zayed Orphanage) - for helping them to be friends despite everything - so desperately sad, but I do hope that there is real hope for the future there.

Sad but sweet. I pray that someday soon our world becomes hate free, so wars never have to begin. That people learn to work and love together. That way these sweet young boys and others don't have to be fatherless. Thanks Carrie

We are all more alike than we are different. Why focus on the differences? Isn't it interesting that children can always teach us adults how to really get along with each other?

Let's hope they'll still be friends as grown-up's.
