I was walking to town the other day with Nicholas. We have a marble game. When one of our children does a good deed they get a marble when they perform the opposite then a marble is taken away. When one of our children gets 10 marbles they get to have a "special day" On a special day the child gets to go for ice cream alone with mom or dad, all alone, no other siblings !
While walking we came around the corner to see this man lifting up a load of recyclable cans and plastics. You can't see it in the picture but there is a man behind trying to help him lift it. I thought it was a powerful image of how those with less carry so much of the burden in the world.
