More > A barefoot woman, pregnant and carrying an infant, is weaving among the stopped cars. At first I think she's simply bullying her way through traffic. Then I see she's begging, and I see the light is out in her eyes. The horror comes when I see a boy, about four years old, still on the curb from which the woman had just come, trying to see a way through three or four erratic lanes of traffic, trying to find his way to his mother. His eyes show that he is terrified, but he doesn't say a word and he doesn't cry. She makes it to the other side of the street and keeps walking. The traffic light changes and the cars don't wait for the boy, who is forced back to the curb. He stands on his toes, trying to see over the cars, trying to keep his eye on his mother, who continues walking. All I can do is run away."< Less
