Her eyes hid her true story

She had nothing more than her family and the community around her, but the way she smiled looked as though she had the world at her feet. Her dark hair turning blonde showed a sadness to an outsider but she never portrayed her daily struggle for food to the outside world. You could see it in her eyes, she was so grateful for life, and yet I couldn’t understand how someone who has nothing is happier then someone who has everything. A young 5 year old was willing to welcome in a complete stranger who spoke of no Spanish and had nothing in common, and yet was willing to learn and trust from this stranger. The thought of this young girl who had the passion and determination to make something of herself and yet was unfortunately born in a unaccessible area was disheartening, she could of had a proper education and been successful and therefore provide enough food for her family to be healthy. Unfortunately the world doesn’t lend a helping hand to all the underprivileged children in the world. This young girl is just a mere number in the world, although she may not be aware of it she made a huge impact on my life and helped me appreciate how to see the real world with two glistening eyes open and a knowing smile, just like hers.

Thank You.
