Beautifully done, as usual. I think this is one of the most important ways we are forever changed. I've thought about this a lot, as you know that I stress to the hilt about the right schools for my kids. I do feel, though, that no matter the child, we want the best for them. I'll never stop being grateful for the myriad of good choices I have for my kids, but I will always take advantage of them. In part because we can. There's a responsibility in that, I think.
Wonderful article. The contrasts between our kids' lives now and their lives in Ethiopia will never cease to make me stop and think about the privileges (and the excesses) we have living in this country. I woke up this morning worrying about transitioning our two kiddos from home to school next month and pondering whether we've made the right choice in schools for them - we were choosing between 3 equally great options. Quite a difference from no choice at all, or actually, no school at all.

Wow, what a great article! Well done!
"Please stop" was what I was saying at the end of the article. Please stop, heart, because it is so full of hope and of sadness and of beauty. I love having these feelings all mixed together because that is our world is made up of. I love this article, Julie. Wonderful. And the new school, just takes my breath away with gladness!
