Love from the Children of Langkloof South Africa

If you may count every drop of water in the ocean and
count every grain of sand in the sea -
multiply it by a thousand and that's how much I love you.
- George of Langkloof

While it is tempting to reword "grain of sand in the sea" to "grain of sand in the desert" or "grain of sand on all the world's beaches," consider how much more sand lies on the sea bottom than on beaches or deserts.

Read more love letters from the children of Langkloof (scroll down on that page to "some letters from the children")

These love letters were written in response to the efforts of a group of teenage girls from Cincinnati Ohio several years ago working to help rebuild a South African village by the name of Langkloof. As far as I can tell, the project is no longer active, as I did not receive a reply to my emails to the address on their website.
