No humans in this world is as excited and energy-filled like kids. With curious brains holding questions as many as the grains of sand and an imagination we will never wrap our heads around, kids are really a ray of sunshine. But when these rays of sunshine fall sick, it drains their energy and leaves them gloomy and low.
