the children of iraq
if you could take the worst enviroment imaginable and add heat, famine, bugs, malaria, poverty beyond anything you could imagine, add a shit load of trash and human shit everywhere and you have the slums of Sadr City... now imagine small children running and waving. smiles on their faces even in the worst possible living conditions. that hit me pretty hard. I guess i didnt know I had a soft spot for kids that much. The adolecents just try to sell you shit but the little kids brighten your day when your wearing 60 pounds of gear, sweating your ass off and havent showered in 4 days. its the little things i guess.
