Carrying The Weight Of The World... by 


Dedicated to all those kids in the world who have to carry far more than they ought and who do it with more grace and dignity than many adults.

Took this shot at a birthday party…this young man really caught my attention and my heart. His life has not been easy, yet he is one of the most gentle souls I have ever met….the video I included reminded me so much of him.

    I too have a big heart for kids who have a troubled childhood.
    It`s the only time in your life you can really be a kid.
    It should be a happy time.
    For many, who`s parents are still acting like kids.
    The kids suffer.
    Fabulous image you captured here.
    Enjoyed the music too.

  • Thank you so much, John…I too have a soft spot for kids like this…wish I could snatch them all up and take them home with me….appreciate your kind and thoughtful comment!
