The Picture in the Header

The picture in the header was taken in a shanty town on the outskirts of Lima, Peru. We were inside an AMG International child-care center that “sponsored” kids would come to daily for fun, learning, loving attention and 1 meal. For many it was their only meal each day! The picture is of “non-sponsored” kids who could only look in from the outside…they are not allowed inside…heartbreaking!

Before the picture was cropped for this header, I always noticed the boy on the right. The one with that painful look on his face. Did I catch him mid sneeze, was he longing to play with the bubbles that were such a huge hit (it really is the simplest things that make the difference), or did I manage to snap the picture just in time to catch the look of “hunger pains” on his face? There’s no way to know, I guess, but now I can’t escape the haunting stare of the boy in the middle! It’s like he’s staring straight into my soul and asking, “What are YOU going to do?”
