The World Outside: Relevant World Snapshot

One of the things that is important to me as a mother is to raise my child with perspective and appreciation. It is often to easy to become so mired in our own day to day situations and drama, that we can lose sight of what we have and what the world outside our communities and country looks like. Take a moment to read the graceful story of a Senegalese beggar child. I do not offer this story as a pity ploy, rather as an appreciation for the beauty of a human spirit in circumstances we hope never to have to endure, but who can teach us and our children much about dignity and spirit.
