"Jumping For Joy"

I was traveling in the Philippines and while walking along Manila Bay, I happened across this amazing scene of brothers and sisters playing amidst the remains of an old wooden pier. A girl helps her sister up. A boy and friends cheer the aerial display of his brother. As I stood watching alongside smiling parents, I realized how amazing Filipino families are and their willingness to help others and innate ability to enjoy the simple things in life.
