children in the rain …

Last night,  on my way home from classes, I saw two little Roma girls, maybe 4 and 6, with dirty bare feet, raggedy clothing, each clutching a paper bag from the bakery.  They were sitting in front of a shoe shop, eating and waiting. Then I saw the shoe shop lady talking to them, asking them to move.  They stood up and moved a few feet away, waiting there in the rain.  I have no idea where the mother was.

I find these sort of sights very difficult to process.
