“The innocence of a child making friends with other children even though they speak two different languages makes all the hatred and racism melt away.”
Robin Zuberer sent me this.
There was something about the innocence of her story.
And the innocence of this picture of her daughter drawing on a chalkboard with kids she’d never met before.
Here’s what Robin wrote.
This year our family is spending Christmas in Quezon City in the Philippines and I wanted to share my experience.
Upon arriving here I only knew the culture from the stories I have been told and the books I have read but seeing life here first hand makes one appreciate life a little bit more.
Our house is in a neighborhood with poverty on either side but through my daughters eyes all she sees is kids she wants to play with.
Some of these kids share one piece of bread for breakfast.
They all came to see the Americans that were visiting. Although they don't have much they seem so happy.
We were welcomed with open arms to join the fun of a birthday party with karaoke and dancing in the street.
The innocence of a child making friends with other children even though they speak two different languages makes all the hatred, racism, bullying, etc that is a common thing in America just melt away.
A very humbling experience to say the least.
I also couldn’t help but notice that I don’t see and stupid phones in this picture.
I don’t see Snapchat.
I don’t see Instagram.
I don’t see kids just staring into their screens.
Instead I see old school.
Kids actually playing together.
What a concept.
