This artwork represents one of the most hurtful moments I have witnessed. This event happened a few weeks before I moved to the United States. I walked with my Mom in one of the most known streets in Venezuela. I saw children eating from the garbage because they didn't have something to eat. Unfortunately, this happens more often than we think. It is frustrating that people with a lot of wealth and power, like politicians, don't do anything about it.
