A Kid's Joy

About as far removed from our rushed, stressed, complicated way of life as you can get, are a bunch of kids in a little Haitian village who know nothing of American politics, the global economy, or who won the Emmy's.  They're unaware of 9/11, Adderall, and Ambien.  They just are.  Their concerns aren't global, they're local. Extremely local.  Like will I eat today? Will anybody in my family get sick today? I wish we had a school.  Stuff like that.

I learned something in a little mountain village in Haiti last Monday.  I learned that it takes more than struggle and hardship to take away a kid's joy.  I was lucky enough to capture a few moments of it here...
