Mariam Ammar, 4-years-old, joins other mainly Sunni and Shiite Muslim orphans during a reconciliation gathering between orphans from the Shiite Kadhimiyah district on the west bank of the Tigris River, and the orphans from the Adhamiyah Sunni district, opposite, on the east side of the river which run through the center of Baghdad on May 03, 2009. Mariam's parents were killed when she was 7-months-old. Some 40 orphan boys and girls gathered receiving gifts by an organization working to break down sectarian barriers which came to a head in 2006 when Iraqis were being killed depending on their creed and in other sectarian violence. All these children lost their parents in such killings. AFP PHOTO / AHMAD AL-RUBAYE (Photo credit should read AHMAD AL-RUBAYE/AFP/Getty Images)
