14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
In January, I volunteered for a month in Uganda teaching at a school. One of my favorite things to do was walk around the village at the end of the day and visit with the local families. In the village, older children often take care of the younger ones, almost taking on the role of the parents, while the parent, or whoever they live with works. The closeness and bonds the children shared, and the maturity of the older children was truly awe-inspiring.
