Just BE

April 10,2016

Just wanted to share some photos of what it looks like around our neighborhood. Simple, tiny, & colorful establishments..most or possibly all of them are family run, Mom & Pop businesses. We see kids working a lot, often with their parents. Sometimes out hustling on their own. We also often see the elderly working, it is not uncommon for doctors or handymen to be in their 70s or 80s…No one is exempt from hard work here. It’s rather refreshing, to live in a society where nobody expects anything… and specifically, from the government. They live to survive and take care of their families. They don’t wait around for someone to feel sorry for them. They are proactive.. and they are happy. It is the craziest thing in the world: that they can all work so hard for so little, and always with the biggest smiles you’ve ever seen. Just happy to BE.
