          As I looked around me, I wondered how such a beautiful paradise could exist in the midst of such poverty and destitution. It wasn’t the beautiful landscape that caught my attention in my February trip to India (though to be sure there are many beautiful sights), but rather the inexplicable joy radiating from my brothers and…

                  I don’t know about you, but my mornings usually go something like this: wake up, hop in the shower, brush teeth, get dressed, make coffee, drink coffee, love the coffee, have some quiet time, load the dishwasher, head to work.
