This is a South African boy I met in in the poverty-striken Kyashelita Township of Capetown. His mother is HIV+ but with the help of a local organization, she supports her family as an artisan, while she gets free day care. Her son's smile and energy, despite the the poverty around him, just melted my heart.

Just reminds me that we don't need a lot of STUFF to be happy...it's within us if we allow ourselves to
