baby hand africaOur baby bodies; so soft and blessed with smiles when we are born.

We slowly age, and then we die – it is the way of nature for us all; inevitable so we should never cry.

The question is what we do between our birth and our demise to help humanity?

If all we did was to seek wealth and glory then we have simply failed in life. It means we helped ourselves from life’s abundant riches, and gave nothing in return.

The poor in slums around the world still laugh and smile and hope to lead a better life, and they deserve a chance to live with dignity like us.

In innocence they hope that someone, somewhere in our world, will hold their hand one day to help them on their way  . . .
