The Day In Photos - LA Times

One of my favorite things to do when I read the news is to look at the 'Day In Pictures' portion of whatever site I am on. My favorites are the Houston Chronicle and the LA Times. Reading the news is great because you get the whole story, but there is nothing like seeing a striking photograph to burn the story into your mind... Like this one of a refugee mother and child. You can read the stories of refugees a hundred times, but this photo makes me realize that it could easily be me. What if we were forced from our home because of a natural disaster or war or disease. Photos like these help me to constantly be grateful for my blessings.
