gathering wood

seeing this woman, up close and personal, greatly disturbed me. i couldn't wrap my mind around the fact... that in some parts of the world, in this case ghana, africa, people still have to gather wood by hand and foot to cook and stay warm. sometimes having to walk miles.

it took some convincing for this woman to even allow me to snap her picture and she only stopped for the briefest of moments. clearly she was on a mission to get to her destination.

i am grateful i live in a place where i do not have to undertake this task every day. or endure the hardship it presents. i hope i will remember how i fe
lt because i have the advantage of modern amenities at my disposal. i hope you recognize your good fortune when you view this picture.

happy day.....
