I ♥ Faces 2 :: Anything Goes

It's week 2 of a new Internet photo sharing contest I Faces. I truly do Faces as long as we're not talking about pictures of my own face. So eventhough this is officially week 2 here's my first entry.
I Faces - Kids :: Theme - Anything goes
I took this photo at a feeding station in KwaZulu Natal for Aids victims and orphans. Some of the kids we saw were being raised by their grandparents and/or their siblings. Some of them were eating their only meal of the day. There was a strong feeling of hope everywhere.
A good meal
