Cultural Diversity
She herds six kids ranging in
age from a few months to maybe 
eight years old, into CVS store.
One kid is half Asian, two others 
different shades of black, one appears
mostly white but vaguely Hispanic,
and a couple who could only be described
as mutts.  All of them hers. 
Is paying cash, in small change, pennies, 
nickels and dimes, for Home Pregnancy
