Hope for Haiti

This, obviously isn't a photograph I have taken. I am safely in my 3 bedroomed detached house on the outskirts of a city in the UK. But when I logged in this morning this photograph was the first thing I saw.
Harrowing. This is Anna Zizi and she has been pulled from an earth-quake wrecked building in Haiti a full week after the quake struck. It portrays the human will to survive in devastating circumstances. Not one of us, however far removed from this, whatever problems we have ourselves can fail to be touched by the horror and destruction when natural disasters strike various parts of the world.
So my picture of the day is not my own but of Anna Zizi, wishing her continued survival and hope.
