I left my suitcase in Ghana this past summer. I can imagine Ben walking to school in my comfortable running shoes, instead of his broken green plastic sandals. I can imagine Lucas using my old backpack to carry his books, rather than his recycled rice bag, which he probably found on the side of the road. These young people grew up appreciating everything, and learning not to waste anything. This picture was taken during my month long stay in Ghana, Africa during the summer.
