Photo Hunt: Dirty



My heart aches when I saw this photo again..This was taken a couple of years ago when we went backpacking to Cambodia. Kids everywhere in the Cambodian border and Thailand..They were in the streets and asking for food and money. There were too many of this kinds in my home country too but in Cambodian border it is totally different because some of their parents don't even have a left or right leg due to the bombs they step off during the war...I feel so sad for them...So, let us be thankful that we live in a nicer world and that it is not our kids in that photo!




Happy Photo hunting!!!

My heart goes out to them and I wish I could help them all. It is definitely a very sad situation over there.
We all should be thankful that we do not live in that kind of situation here.
Great photo and thanks for sharing. Try to have a good weekend.

I think we all too easily forget how fortunate we are and it's only when you see pictures like this or witness it first hand, that it brings it back to you.

Have a great weekend

You are so right, we should be grateful our own children don't have to go through that. Very thought provoking.
