Part 1: Life on the Road Education- Meeting Raffy Our Neighbor in Maolbaol, Philippines
I’m not publishing any photos of our friend Raffy until I talk to his mom and she says if it’s cool or not. So, for now, trust us, he’s just perfect. Comments on how I used the word ‘retarded’ got pretty interesting.A few people felt it was insulting and inappropriate, and a few more people (those who know us) felt that it was used appropriately and with love. Any thoughts, we’d love to hear it. But more importantly, let’s focus on the subject, the love, the beauty of this boy and what we are about to learn from him. What a waste it would be if we threw out the lessons for semantics.
