6.
It makes you wanna help them and wanna help them feel the same love and acceptance that you have for yourself.

A lot of this side in Old Oakland was abandoned.

I couldn't wrap my head around it that there was a farmer's market almost being shut down.

And at that point, there was no hot food served in this market hall.
