People Should Be More Like these Peruvian Shanty Children

"Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven." -Matthew 18:3
When I saw this picture, firstly I thought: people should be more like this. Content, playful, making do with what they have. Secondly, this picture makes me miss warm weather, warm heavenly weather, not this icy hades that has been dominating the scene, weather which allows us all to play outside, children and adults alike. I've started playing Squash on Tuesdays, but what I really crave is to be out in a park playing soccer. Damn you groundhog!

Maybe the Peruvian kids would like to play with the snow (the ones that don't live in the Andes, that is...).

lol @ the groundhog. Wonder if that applies to North American weather only...

Some of the greatest football players in the history of the game come from South America. Pelé and Maradonna being but two. Sadly, and yet ironically wonderfully,poverty seems to generate talent where it is less expected.
