Thanks for the pictures of the Bahraini visit, I bet Sheikah Sabeeka thought Hashem had grown up alot! Nice to see Salma with them, although she looks a little bit grumpy.

Suggestion

As Jordanians, Her Majesty Queen Rania is known as Her Majesty Queen Rania Al-Abdallah. To those who have lived long enough in Jordan, they know the parts of Amman. One Area is called Al-Abdali. Some people may not know it but Al-Abdali is short for Al-Abdallah. Now, can Her Majesty Queen Rania be referred to as "Queen Rania Al-Abdali"?

Queen reinforces importance of awareness, prevention programmes in spreading 'child safety' culture

AMMAN (JT) — Her Majesty Queen Rania on Tuesday reinforced the importance of awareness and prevention programmes in creating and spreading a culture of child safety in Jordan and the Arab world.

During a visit to the Queen Rania Family and Child Centre (QRFCC) yesterday, the Queen joined a group of children aged six to eight, participating in a drama workshop. The children were working on identifying feelings and expressing those feelings using audiovisual stimulants. Jordan Times

This is actually a very effective approach in getting children to open up and feel comfortable, "safe," expressing their feelings. We have a local center which began a similar program this year and the results have impressed the professionals supervising it--some of whom were skeptical at first. I hope more schools/programs in Jordan and within other countries begin utilizing it as a means to reinforce and help children identify and receive help when their safety is being threatened. It's very nice to see Queen Rania lending her support to it.
