My kids, resilience & awe

This morning, I brought my son with me to visit some homes in a slum area. It was interesting watching him look at the kids, see the homes, smell things that are not so whippy & reflect on the lives of the people we met in contrast to his daily living. He is a real trooper & did a great job being polite & respectful. Nevertheless, I know that he’s really thinking about all of this, digesting it & absorbing the very experiences.
For me, I am continually amazed at the people here – their resilience, optimism, friendliness & endurance.
I interviewed a mom today who is 42, with 8 children ranging from 3months to 19 years old. Needless to say, I was fairly speechless as I sat in her house & listened to her history. She is truly magnificent
