A Touch of Reality

A shoeless child - not by choice - simply does not have any

The sandwich and orange may have been her most substantial meal that day

Cleaning her "front yard"

Home sweet home

Their day job.

I went on a tour of some of the hidden parts of life in Mexico. A simple drive through the unseen parts of town. Homes that were made from whatever materials people could find placed on land they hoped not to be evicted from. Children awaiting their parents return from the garbage dump where they hoped to have found enough salvaged materials to sell to afford food for a meal. It truly was a wake up call.
