A movie star, visiting a refugee camp for the publicity of it, was repelled by the sight. On his first morning, he washed his hands about a dozen times. He didn’t want to touch anything, least of all people, all covered with sores and scabs.Then,just has he bending down to one little tyke, mainly for the photographer’s benefit, someone accidentally stood on the child’s fingers. The child screamed, and in a reflex, the movie star, forgetting the child’s dirt and sores, grabbed him. He always remembered that warm little body clinging to him and the crying instantly stopping. At that moment he knew he had much to learn about loving, but he knew, too, that at least he had started.
