Walk a mile…

shoes

…in someone else’s shoes.  In this case, the shoes belong to a man who scavenges for a living.  I pass men, women, and children who scavenge to live every morning as I head to school.  They work their way through the trash of Kemang residences, looking for things that will bring them income.

Walk a mile in this pair of shoes.  I doubt I would make it through a day.

    • It’s the irony that I live every day here. In Canada, it’s less obvious than it is here. It’s not that it doesn’t exist there, it’s much harder to see.
