If we look back to our past, we would see us as children went to school, played with our friends and family, just enjoyed ourlives without thingking what we had to do to live.

But now, many children live on the road. They work so they can eat, if you see them, they're still at the age of school. I've asked one of them, he was about 7 years old, why he did work on the road, and his answer shocked me: he said that he did that because he wanted to help his parents. But when i asked what his parents do for living, he said that his dad worked as road cleaner, and his mother is taking care of his siblings at home.

At 7 years old, I think he should be at school, studying, learning, and dream about what he wants to be. I don't know who's right and who's wrong in this situation? And who am I to jude, I've never been in his situation..
