“Will you buy me flowers kind sir?” asked the flower girl.

Her whole appearance mirrored the extreme poverty and hardships of her life.  Yet within her there was still warmth and true beauty, like her flowers.   All she hoped for was a room far away from the cold night air.

Trapped through lack of education and opportunities, here she stood daily selling her flowers.

Would anyone ever help her to improve her chances in life? Perhaps enable her to climb the social ladder?  Pass her off as royalty one day!?  Or was that just a dream you find in books?
