|We walked through 100 yards of excited, beautiful kids, along the side of the road. They came in a range of sizes – from 1st to 6th-graders. All of them were wearing their old, worn school uniforms that had been passed down from bigger brothers and sisters.
I’ll never forget that walk. Some of the children were jumping up and down and whistling. All were clapping and excited to see us. Nothing has ever touched me so deeply.
