Smiling dreams

These two pretty girls selling roses approached us at a traffic signal, requesting us to buy the flowers. Meanwhile, they happily obliged for a conversation and some pictures.

The little one told us that she goes to school sometimes, while the older one has to earn and help with the house chores, therefore, declining her the luxury of education. On being asked about their ambition, they said, “we want to become policewomen when we grow up and beat the shit out of bad people.”

Those adorable smiling and pouting faces, completely oblivious to the cruel world waiting for them out there, touched our hearts. We sure hope your dreams come true, little angels!
