A girl can dream…

Sand Bay-Jardin Botanico-Vinas del Lago-Salvador Gaviota-Playa 022

Caught this cutie playing with her dolls on the beach the other day.  She was adorable and just enjoying her afternoon like all children should- playing with her toys.  Unfortunately, for too many children around the world playing and toys are luxuries they simply can’t afford.

Walking home that very same afternoon, I watched a young boy trudge up the coast carrying a heavy load on his back.  He wasn’t enjoying his afternoon- he was working, as so many poor children around the world have to in order to survive.

I dream of the day all children can play.
