What I found most striking about these beautiful children was the smiles on their faces despite the circumstances they are in. As I ventured around, camera in hand, they didn’t ask me for money, they just wanted to put up peace sign fingers and smile for the camera. These children, with so little means, taught me about happiness. For the first time I finally understood that true joy comes from within us, not from some external force.
