Although they are brothers, the right to breast feed was the youngest’s. But the lesson that the mother offered in the few minutes the sharing lasted was beautiful. The youngest decided that afternoon to take advantage of his mother’s break to drink a little milk; his brother, who is slightly older, decided to have a little milk as well and took the other breast. In Cuenca, Ecuador, street begging is a recurrent issue intended to be invisible. It has been difficult to portray this in a positive, different, and constructive perspective that shows the feelings and implicit dignity of acts such as feeding a child with great generosity, on a public street.
