The children and the wheelchair

I met this woman and soon found out she had not walked for most of her life.  The children brought her a wheelchair that was donated to Bill Rice Clinic.  They also sang her a song and she cried for joy.  Life, at that moment, seemed so perfect and filled with limitless joy.

After English class, I said "Let's bring a wheelchair to someone who can not walk."  I started to push it but soon all the boys picked it up and ran down the road singing "We are the World. We are the children."  I could hardly keep up with them as we made our way down the road to another small hamlet.
