A wheelbarrow

      It always strikes me how resourceful the Kenyan culture is.  Nothing is thrown away.  Anything and everything can be used for some purpose.  
   These boys greeted us on a hike nearby Tenwek.  I'm not sure what they planned to carry in the Wheelbarrow, but they were rightfully proud of their tool.

So amazing what can be fashioned from discarded parts. This is what leaves me disheartened when I hear the whining of the upcoming generations - the Entitled Bunch as I call them. If it cannot be bought then it doesn't exist. So sad. I think of a card I got from one of my dad's neighbors after my dad's death. He, the Battalion Captain of the Bend Fire Dept, had gotten from my dad a box of "parts that eventually became a lawn mower" . That is what I grew up with and what I so want the youth of this nation to grow into - creative and inventive. I love this post.
Praying for you to be blessed today,
