The Little Reminders

The other day, while shopping recently, I came across this little box.  I know the picture is blurry, but it was a stark reminder of how fragile life is here in Zambia.  While you wouldn't see these so readily available in the States, they are produced in bulk here.  This coffin was about 3 feet in length and was being sold at the same place we buy lime for fertilizing our fields.

Crazy isn't it?  The same place we go to buy supplies for creating a new season of life is the same place a lot of Zambians go to buy the box to place their little loved ones.
