Some of the kids in my niece's graduating class went to Africa to bring school supplies to a school there....... to help dig the foundation for an addition to the school....... to visit an orphanage... to sight see and virtually immerse themselves in the African culture for 14 days.
i have been viewing their pictures as they upload them. Most of the pictures are rather typical of 16/17 year olds, hamming for the camera, posed stiff pictures....... and lots of animal (as in monkey, giraffe, lioness) pictures. But there was one that took my breath away.......
The kids climbed Little Meru Peak - which took two days of climbing. At the summit one of the kids took this picture.
It spoke to something deep inside of me......... and made me proud.
i think the kid who snapped this picture has a future with National Geographic.
