Doubt, Certainty

During a visit to a Thai village, this little girl's expression was fixed. What do Thai and North American children have in common? Both wear clothes and ride bicycles made in China. As well, we don't know how much we have in common.

The girl's look of doubt is one of certainty; she knows who we are, and believes we killed her grandfather in the American war, named not for where it was fought, but for the adversary.
