The Lady with the Violet Scarf by Jose Juniel Rivera-Negron

I was invited to a special activity where a big truck came with lots of fruit, vegetables, and all the food you can’t imagine, for our community in need. I saw this beautiful lady, whom I don’t know, but caught my attention on how carefully she picked her vegetables. I could see hope in her eyes.
