    hi Amy,

    Here’s the background on this image. This is a subway platform in Bucuresti, Romania. That kid on the ground is a gypsy kid and he is on a small skateboard-type of contraption to hold his body up. He has no lower torso, nor any legs. Yes, he somehow is alive. He is one of many, but probably the most extreme, deformed Gypsy children sent through the Romanian subways to beg for money. They sometimes get pretty inventive, the kids, that is. The parents too, though quite cruelly, as you can see here. My gut feeling tells me he did not accidentally lose the bottom half of his body.

  3. o my goodness. that is brutal. i am sending him prayers…

  4. oh – as for my son’s tooth – it was really loose for weeks and then he just pulled it out. no blood or anything – so it was pretty much out on its own.

    I thought that what was going on. I saw a man in Chile with a similar problem, and on a skateboard like contraption to get around.
