She Should Be in School

She Should Be in School

I was shocked when this small girl jumped up on the chair next to me and
started dancing. She really had quite a routine worked up and at first
glance I thought it was cute... but, this is a problem in Mexico. This
little girl should be in school and not shaking down tourists for Pesos.
So, my lesson was to not give Pesos to the little ones.... as hard as it
is to resist.

Just breaks my heart! I know when I was there it was so difficult not to give them something but the family expects all to chip in to help the family! An education is what they need to get out of the poverty they are in but is so seldom found.
