This is a picture of a Peace Corps trainee and a Liberian farmer in Zorzor, Lofa County, Liberia, West Africa.
The African woman had her son at about the age of 14, is pregnant again, and briskly walks from her farm balancing 50 pounds on her head. She will probably live to 40.
The young American is childless in her early 20s, has recently graduated from collage and couldn't balance a book on her head. She will probably live to 80.
