In light of all the recent and seemingly continual horrors, it’s uplifting to discover the scarce stories of human perseverance. More than the images of all the destruction in Japan, the photos and stories of survivors stay with me throughout the day. Like the one I link to above. Or the photo of the infant who survived under rubble for three days before being reunited with her father. Or even the photo of the man sobbing with joy because his dog survived too. I’ll link to these photos when I have more time.
