Time for a break….

It’s 7:30 AM and this woman–with her three children–is taking a break after collecting the cart full of recyclable trash at the curb. How long did it take her to collect such a mound of discards? What time did she go out on the street with her kids? In the dark? Will she sell this load and go back out on the street today or is it quitting time for this day? Did they have anything to eat? Will the kids be able to go to school? Will she ever be able to not collect trash?
