In my affluent neighborhood, just around the corner, there are many children who cannot afford to go to school. They live in inhumane conditions among trash and oftentimes must go without food for days. Taking care of them, feeding them one meal a day, teaching them to read, to garden and recycle, contributing to instill environment stewardship in their mind saved me from my own emptiness. It’s this hopeful quest for happiness that I share with you. .
