No Pity Necessary

One final thought before heading to bed tonight...

I came to Ecuador feeling pity for the impoverished people we would meet and sadness for those who couldn´t find a way to get out of their situation. Having now met these men, women, and children, having shaken their hands and looked them in the eye, I have nothing but the utmost respect, gratitude, and love for every one of them. These are not poor people begging for a handout; these are proud, hard working folks who just need a little assistance from those of us who have more than we could ever need. Don´t cry for the people of Ecuador...just help them.
