On the second day of our hike in Nepal we got to interact with about 100 children who were students at a boarding school. In spite of their weathered clothes and sockless feet, there were plenty of smiles and laughter.
The young students loved the thumb wrestling games we taught them; they giggled at the pictures of their chapped faces that stared back from our cell phones. They sang to us and recited chants to honor us as guests. The entire 90 minutes was filled with laughter and joy, for both students and the team. How can a heart turn from an innocent child?
