A friend once told me about a trip she went on to Russia to help out for a brief time in an orphanage. She was part of a team, and they had prepared several bags of coloring pages and crayons for the children.

Finally, when they handed them out, they realized they were short one, and one child would be going without one.

"In America, kids would just think 'sucks to be you' and go on," she explained.

However, the other children, as soon as they saw this, took out some of their own coloring pages and crayons and gave them to the child who didn't have any.

"It might be communism," she said, "but it was also love."
