Children Around the World
When I read the recent article in Feature Shoot, Photos of Children From Around the World With Their Most Prized Possessions, I was reminded of my time in India. I too felt an openness from these children who came from so little. They were proud of their possessions, no matter how small.
The same is true for the children I know in the U.S.A. as well. Their stuffed animals keep them safe at night, and their race cars are the fastest in the world. For all children, their dearest toys have a life of their own. They are loved as much more than material objects.
I learn so much from the children in my life. They embody generosity and appreciation. No matter where they come from in the world, they share a common thread of wonder and pure joy. They teach me what it means to be a human being and are a constant reminder of why we need to work for good in the world.
