Throughout the week we have been coming together to not only build things for Dunbar School in miami but we have also been given the opportunity to connect with the children of the Overtown Youth Center and get a deeper feeling of what their lives are like. This project has made me realize how fortunate I am; a lot of these children live under the poverty line and can not afford luxuries like a new toy or pair of shoes. Despite the hardships that they are facing, these children are the most well behaved children that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. The smiles on their faces speak louder than words. Although they do not have much, they appreciate what they do have and revel in the fact that we are playing with them and making their day that much better. I am overhwhelmingly thankful for this experience that is changing the way that I look at life forever,
