Our friend David is an aid worker (doctor) in Zambia, at the Mukinge Mission Hospital.  He often sends us photographs he has taken of his friends, the people and the wildlife.  This little girl, Jessica lives in the nearby village with her parents.  She is a joyous little girl; her smile seems to dissolve any hardship or infirmity that she or her family might be facing.  Joy comes from within; with it comes HOPE; hope leads to an inner peace that transcends all understanding.  I love this photo, so I decided to write my own acrostic poem, relating it to this beautiful photograph.
