The Edge of Heaven
Here's the picture of the home of a family of eight in Guatemala City—two parents and six children.
The father gave up a day's income to take off work so he could meet us and thank us.
His wife made us treats and welcomed us with a kiss.
And as I looked around their hovel I thought back to the view from the resort. Earlier in the day I'd thought it was like a glimpse of heaven. But when I saw the thanks on his face and the love in her eyes, I knew I'd been mistaken.
That wasn't a glimpse of heaven.
