A little gleam of light amidst the gloom of the disaster:
Amid the mangled towers of wreckage and flooded debris, a country in despair is grateful for any cheerful news.
And today, the discovery of a baby girl who had survived for three days after the tsunami that devastated Japan provided just that.
Accounts as to how the four-month-old had survived were lost in translation – but it is believed she was plucked helpless from the rubble in Ishinomaki, in the state of Miyagi.
Against the odds, she was rescued apparently safe and unharmed after being spotted by a member of Japan’s Self-Defence Force.
Kinda warms your heart a little, doesn’t it?
If you have any to spare, please, give a little to help out. Myself, I prefer giving through Franklin Graham’s Samaritan Purse organization, but there are many other choices.
