Empty Eyes, Empty Heart

This small boy didn't smile when I snapped his picture. I wonder if his sad expression is a reflection of the hopelessness that he and his family feel everyday as they fight against poverty and injustice. I wonder when and what he had to eat. Do the hunger pains make it hard to think and learn? Most of all I wonder if just as his eyes are empty of joy, is his heart empty of the love of Jesus? And then I am reminded of why we want to go...

"Let the little children to come to me and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of heaven." Matt 19:14
