Amazed at Her Ingenuity
While walking home from a leadership workshop in Kenya's Chalbi Desert, I caught up to five-year-old Sori. She was knitting, her tiny fingers flying as she walked to the local shop to buy sugar. Admiring handiwork from one so young, I asked what she was going to do with her yet-small piece of cloth. "It's a blanket to protect my new baby brother from the cold desert wind at night," she replied.

Impressed, I was even more amazed at her ingenuity. Her knitting needles were four-inch thorns cut from trees surrounding her settlement.
