A Photo You Need To See, And The Story Behind It You Need To Hear
The ironic thing about comfort is that it defamiliarizes us with struggle, and then leads us to a state of mind in which we take that very comfort for granted. The story behind this photo, and others like it, teach us how not to take what comfort and joy we do have for granted. The other piece of gold we can take from hearing about Summer Puente's father and sister is that even when the odds are stacked impossibly against us, the connections we make with loved ones will save grace and preserve a kind of beauty you not only see, but also feel.
