Children are Children

Water pipe leak along E Rodriguez Ave., QC

But children are children,
Knowing not a mob or crowd;
Curiosity, danger and dream
Lie behind a thin shroud.

I was devastated when I saw the picture in your blog. It reminds me how I was when I was a little, and realized how lucky I am to receive all the blessings God has given me.

Poverty stricken populations, lacking access to basic education and basic needs, are vulnerable to changes in the global economy. Healthier and better educated populations on the other hand are more productive, more diverse and better able to adapt to change. Child poverty is a significant lack of the basic needs required for healthy physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual development. Now I feel so blessed and guilty at the same time that I still ask for more when in fact I have so much.
