It´s been gratifying to see that here, a teacher who loves her children is still allowed–even encouraged–to hug them. Do you think we´ve lost something in the U.S.? I think we face that danger.
This is the teacher at Jicaro School (also known as Republic of Venezuela School) with two of her students during the first day of Vacation Bible School there. This same teacher treated the visiting team to dinner the evening before.
In addition to being memorable due to a delicious meal, the evening was made even more memorable when the electricity went off a couple of times during dinner. Quick recovery with flashlights and candles gave a certain atmosphere we´ll look back on fondly. We even finished the evening with hugs all around.
Some things simply have no suitable substitute.
