Well Wishes... 

From Russia With Glove




Often, gloves merely symbolize the HAND itself; usually, however, they signify high status, clean hands, white gloves as cleanliness and purity. They also conceal; they highlight the gestures of the HAND. Gloves embody power and protection, as well as nobility.

POWER 
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-45209868

Ashwaq was only 14 when Islamic State fighters stormed into northern Iraq, including the heartland of the Yazidi people. They took thousands of women as sex slaves, including Ashwaq - sold for $100 to a man named Abu Humam. Raped and beaten, she managed to escape three months later and then went to Germany with her mother and one brother.

PRIVILEGE

New Jersey Judge James Troiano rejected the prosecutors' request to charge the 16-year-old in adult court, saying he "comes from a good family who put him into an excellent school."

THE STRONG 
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/ampstories/yazidiwomen/index.html

Nadia Murad was one of more than 6,700 Yazidi women taken prisoner by Islamic State in Iraq. She was captured on 15 August 2014. She was held as a slave in the city of Mosul, where she was beaten, burned with cigarettes, and raped. She successfully escaped after her captor left the house unlocked.

Nadia Murad is the founder of Nadia's Initiative, an organization dedicated to "helping women and children victimized by genocide, mass atrocities, and human trafficking to heal and rebuild their lives and communities".
