The Rootless Tree

A Peace Corps Volunteer here made an incredible video that brings to life the article that the NYTimes recently published about Children leading households.  It's a pretty incredible story and I don't think many people from the USA or other developed nations realize how hard it is for the people left behind to cope while their parents or relatives work abroad.

On a personal note, I make copies daily for people who are applying for work visas in other countries.  In an indirect way I am encouraging these people to continue "uprooting their trees" by helping them to find work outside of Moldova.
