Hmm... maybe it's just me, but it seems a bit inappropriate to draw some kind of feel-good, self-help lesson from kids who are forced to do whatever it takes to feed themselves and their family.

Carmen, I appreciate your perspective, but I have to disagree. I don't think the positive that I've drawn from what I've seen in any way diminishes the tragedy of the situation.

There are lessons to be learned and applied wherever we turn. In this case, the lesson staring me smack in the face was that these kids *were* doing whatever it took. And regardless of the driving force behind it, seeing it shined a light on the gap between their approach and mine. And it was a clear illustration that I could be doing a lot more.

If seeing that difference has a positive impact on me, then perhaps it will have a positive impact on others. And if it will have a positive impact on others, then I want to share it.

Well we can agree to disagree then. I think it's about as tasteful as blogging about diet tips from famine victims.
