What is important and meaningful to each of us depends greatly on individual needs.
A chapter of individual lives close every end of the day. Body and mind need to recharge. But there are moments of reflection before we lie down to rest.
Have we done any meaningful thing the past 24 hours? Perhaps nothing earth-shattering that could change the world. Just small, simple acts of an ordinary life. Yet some deeds stand out.
The boy above, tying his boat in a makeshift pier after an afternoon at sea, was all smiles as I approached him after taking the picture. I asked him if he caught any and he showed me a medium-sized pail full of fishes.
He added that his father was sick and could not go fishing, and what he caught would be food for dinner for his six siblings.
I was touched and impressed. What the boy did will never matter to the world, but it is all the world for him to make sure his family would not sleep on empty stomachs at the end of the day.
