World's smallest teenager

I'm always impressed and pleased to encounter stories of little people doing well. Jyoti Amge is a well-adjusted 14 year old achondroplastic dwarf who weighs only 11 pounds. The photo above depicts her standing in front of classmates and next to her backpack (!). More about her at this link. Credit to Presurfer.

The culture of India is particularly well-suited to treating "different" people with respect. More on this subject in a subsequent post.
