A woman and her child wait for test results at Aweil state hospital.

"Waiting is a form of passive persistence." (Ogwo David Emenike)

Everybody knows that feeling of waiting; waiting for something, waiting for someone - a test result, an important decision, a good friend, or waiting for something to happen. And isn’t it crazy how the perception of time changes in such waiting periods? In a world where everything wants to be perfectly timed, some things just defy control.
