Fun Friday Photo – Pencils Bring Joy?

India: Orphans and Vulnerable Children receive school supplies from Bright Hope

I remember taking this picture so well.  I asked the children what they were excited about receiving from their Hope Packs, and they held up their pencils.  “Pencils”, I said, “No Way!” and they all shouted back “YEEAAAHHHH”.   A moment I’ll never forget!
