This picture is from an article called "The Rescuing Hug". The article details the first week of life of a set of twins. Each were in their respective incubators and one was not expected to live. A hospital nurse fought against the hospital rules and placed the babies in one incubator. When they were placed together, the healthier of the two, threw an arm over her sister in an endearing embrace. The smaller baby's heart stabilized and temperature rose to normal.

Pema Chodron: “The peace that we are looking for is not peace that crumbles as soon as there is difficulty or chaos… Peace isn’t an experience free of challenges, free of rough and smooth—it’s an experience that’s expansive enough to include all that arises without feeling threatened.”

The girl on the left, Somana, is a wonderful, courageous girl who was kidnapped and sold to a brothel at 14. The brothel gouged out her eye as punishment when she complained. After we wrote about her, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton visited her on a trip to Cambodia--and the visit reverberated through the Cambodian bureaucracy. The message was that maybe these girls matter after all, if America cares about them.
