Do you hear what I hear?

Do you hear what I hear? I hear a child’s cry, stubbornly demanding ‘something’, it is not from one of the famine hit African countries and not even from one of the conflict hit Middle Eastern countries but strangely enough from a child, accompanying the parents, at the checkout counter at a supermarket.
