poverty doesn't equal unhappiness
Walking around Zambia, it never ceases to amaze me at how happy the children are everywhere!
I walked through the shanty compounds and the kids were so full of joy and eager to entain me, though I was a stranger to them! They sang songs and posed for the camera when I took it out, and were generally in good spirits In contrast to their surroundings! Some probaly hadn't seen a meal all day, some probably were orphans with no one to take care of them, some probably had never seen a camera before this day, some probably had never had a picture taken. They made my day with their enthusiasm.
If everyone in the world had half the joy of those kids...the world would be a happy and joyous place...
