We asked a group of children from an economically-challenged background an interesting question: "What makes you happy?" Most of these children walk to the school, sit for long hours on the school floor, have never used a computer and don't know what the Internet is. Yet the most astounding feeling of happiness one gets from these kids is mind blowing.

Many of these beautiful children attend tiny one-room establishments and feel happy to help and serve in the school and deeply desire a strong social support network of family and friends. Especially with the upcoming holiday season, we are conditioned to thinking that happiness comes from online shopping! When you watch the innocent faces of these children, you'll realize happiness is a conscious choice.
