Need For Dignity

“But you don’t need to worry about that now; just try and see for yourself.”

He tried to convince his petite fiance when she expressed her big concern that his room and home didn’t have an attached bathroom.

She felt like a fool having decided to marry him and having to go to the fields to answer nature’s call as there was no toilet!

He appeared chilly to suggest open defecation.

She shared info about Puffins.

"Even birds understand the need for toilets for their young, and work for their future by building toilets!"

“It’s glorious when we consider dignity as our responsibility.
