 image: Laos, 2005. The man insisted I visit his hut. There lay a young girl and her two babies, and next to them a fire smoldering inside the clay ground to heat the place. The mom was exhausted. I did not know what to do or say. The man was excited and happy. The babies were born yesterday he said. The hut felt like a sauna. I wished I was a nurse. I was ashamed that soon I would be leaving and what would become of these babies. What were their chances and hope, the village was so poor. I left behind all the money I had the image has never left me.
