The grateful school children of Guinea Bissau

These children want to go to school. They sit all day on homemade seats made of branches. One little guy said "My back hurts a lot after school is over, but I am in the 1st grade!" He was so proud of himself. As a former teacher, I wonder if our students in the Americas would have survived such schooling and would have been so grateful for the chance to go to school? Keep praying for Guinea Bissau. -- Maritza Alvarez-Romero
