A little boy in the Dominican Republic looks down the dirt road that crosses in front of his home, a small wooden shack. He sees a group begin to gather as people from the church down the road start passing out bags of food.
With bare feet and dusty and dirty pants, he walks with his little sister towards the crowd. This might be his only chance to get something for his sister to eat for the week.
And he’ll eat whatever’s left.
A little later, his left hand, barely big enough to hold a softball, clutches two large bags of food against his chest. His right hand gently, and protectively, rests around his baby sister’s back.
He’s the only one left to take care of her. But he’s still a child himself.
Standing there in her sweet pink dress, also covered in dust and dirt, she reaches for her big brother, her hero, with her tiny hand. When did his carefree childhood disappear?
When did their futures become so uncertain?
