I was walking out the door to go to work the other day and noticed something that is quite regular around here - Ellie and Grace (one of our Zambian worker's daughters) playing in the yard.  Nothing spectacular, but just heart warming to see two kids, from completely different socio-economic backgrounds and cultures playing and having fun together.  Isn't it amazing that as we grow up, we teach ourselves (or are taught by others) that those who are different, or who have less, or who think, act and speak differently can't be close friends?  I mean, we can try to help those who are different, but we can't be vulnerable in front of them, we can't really enjoy their company, we can't have a real intimate friendship with them can we?

I'm just glad that these two haven't learned this yet ; )
