Weekly Photo Challenge: Wrong

Young gypsy girl sleeping in the street in Naples, Italy

I came across this young gypsy girl sleeping in the street in Naples, Italy, and what I found particularly poignant in this scene are the posters on the wall. One is advertising enrollment in dance classes, the other, enrollment in a computer school. I couldn't help thinking about the unrealized potential in that beautiful child. It was like watching a flower wilt. What could she do if given a chance?

Letting a child sleep in the streets is wrong. Not caring and looking the other way is wrong.

The sign says that she is a young girl from Albania and has six siblings, than goes on to describe her dire situation. It's impossible to know the true story, but it's pretty certain that she was being exploited and not taken care of.
