An interesting thing happened while driving back to the flat today. I noticed a group of girls waving cheerfully at me from the van in front of me. I smiled back, but felt something amiss. That's when I noticed it written on the back of the van - "disabled children". Suddenly I felt a pang of sympathy. Not for them, but the rest of the world. When did we forget to laugh? Laugh our heart out without a care...at ourselves, at the world around us. Why should I even have thought why these girls are laughing. They are kids enjoying life. They don't require a reason to be happy.I hope that we don't end up being a generation who forget teaching our kids one of the most important things in life - spread happiness. Those girls were calling out 'bye bye uncle' as I passed them. I waved back at them, thankful for showing me the happiness in small things.
