Dr. Vincent DeGennaro Jr. '02 | Mar. 12, 2013 | Notre Dame Magazine
His hair is red, abnormal in a dark-skinned boy, and his belly is distended, although not as significantly as other children I have seen before. He is malnourished, has bronchitis and probably asthma, his nose perpetually running, and he takes deep breaths in before letting out a barking cough. He is unmistakably a child of poverty, but he’s wearing shoes.
