Smiles & Giggles

For the photo exhibition I'm doing, I went to take pictures of children that go to a school here on campus. It's a program that allows different workers on campus to put their kids in school, that hopefully will prepare them for high school and further. Many of these families are unable to do this due to various reasons, so it's a big blessing to them.

And the kids were so adorable, like this one:

As you can see, she was supposed to be reading, but instead she couldn't help giggling and smiling at me while I took photos. :) I didn't mind. I love this one - wish it were going to be in the exhibition, but another one was chosen (which is equally good, if not better). 

As one of my friends said when she saw this picture, kids are the same everywhere! Full of energy, love, laughter, smiles and goofiness. This reminds me again of how all over the world - we are the same! We have a shared humanity that can't be looked past. I think this is important to remember.

Hope you're having a great day. Can't believe it's already the end of November! Time is flying!
