Open eyes

Visiting places like Hanoi, Monclova, Johannesburg and Geogetown gives you an eyeful as to how much of the world lives. Early on in my career I was able to formulate a picture of injustice while realizing my life in Canada was blessed. Many people live in dire poverty with very hard daily conditions and those images will always stay with me.

Many who travel only for leisure see idealized visions of these countries because they do not visit the industrial portions where the people live which skews their perspeptive. When you see people living in the equivalent of a box it opens your eyes.
