Where different children sleep

I wasn't sure where to post this, as a number of different areas on the forums would have been "correct". I chose home law and money as this post is all about the home and money that some families have.

I thought I would post this as it touched me as to how different a life we can have depending on nothing more than where we are born

Mr. Mollison’s new book, “Where Children Sleep,” had its origins in a project undertaken for a children’s charity several years ago. As he considered how to represent needy children around the world, he wanted to avoid the common devices: pleading eyes, toothless smiles. When he visualized his own childhood, he realized that his bedroom said a lot about what sort of life he led. So he set out to find others.

    I found it to be very eye opening. I would have guessed P& would be the natural place for this. I am continually astonished by how much we can learn about ourselves and our humanity through the arts. The Romanian boy was heartbreaking.
