Another child from the Hope for Life: Kenya mission trip segment. I had to fight my own tears capturing this image. Oddly enough, this child has a damaged tear duct, so no matter what emotion he may actually be feeling, he simply can't control the tears of his left eye from falling every now and then. Not pictured, his laugh that can light up the darkest of days...

Thank you

Thank you. Sometimes, there less words and more emotions or ideas that don't have words to reflect what may come to mind, or even to one's heart. I am grateful to share these images to raise awareness on things we may not otherwise see or notice.

Kind Regards
