Isaiah is the son of Adele and Kevin LaCombe, members of World Vision's National Leadership Council. This is his story.
I am Isaiah LaCombe.
I'm a fourteen-year-old, which means I'm a part of generation X, and I live in the great state of Washington. Lots of people say where they live is the best place on earth, but when I say it I mean it. Washington isn't great because of the landmarks, or the culture, or even the amazing views. Sure, those things don't hurt, but what truly makes Washington so great is that life never gets all that tough. That's not to say there aren’t people here who struggle, because there are. But no matter who you are, living here never gets too tough.
Because I live in such a great place I’ve never truly understood what it means to be the poorest of the poor.
