In April 2015, 8 months after the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS) ravaged the Yezidis of the Sinjar area, I returned to Iraqi Kurdistan to visit Yezidi friends. I found amazing grace amidst wrenching losses, ongoing hardships, and universal uncertainties. With permission, I offer a small collection of photographs to help you understand. (Note: Only a few of these photographs are offered for sale.)
