      Mother/Daughter. Sweet moment remembering all other moments. This made me cry. One day I will not have my mother... Death is the great reminder. How blessed are those that have someone to remember with them

      Father, open my eyes to see the hurts and struggles of others. Then open my heart to respond to them, so that through me they may see You and Your love. Amen. A world in despair needs Christians who care.

    IPA AWARD deeper perspective. " Victims of Forced Love" by Ebrahim Noroozi, Iran. Somayeh Mehri (29) and Rana Afghanipour (3) - a mother and daughter living in Bam, southern Iran. They were attacked with acid by Somayeh’s husband Amir.

    A picture began circulating in November, 1999. It should have been "The Picture of the Year," or perhaps, "Picture of the Decade." It wasn't. In fact, unless you obtained a copy of the U.S. paper which published it, you probably would never have seen it. The picture is that of a 21-week-old unborn baby named Samuel Alexander Armas, who is being operated on by surgeon named Joseph Bruner. The baby was diagnosed with spina bifida and would not survive if removed from his mother's womb. Little Samuel's mother, Julie Armas, is an obstetrics nurse in Atlanta. She knew of Dr. Bruner's remarkable surgical procedure. Practicing at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, he performs these special operations while the baby is still in the womb. During the procedure, the doctor removes the uterus via C-section and makes a small incision to operate on the baby. As Dr. Bruner completed the surgery on Samuel, the little guy reached his tiny, but fully developed hand through the incision and firmly grasped the surgeon's finger. Dr. Bruner was reported as saying that when his finger was grasped, it was the most emotional moment of his life, and that for an instant during the procedure he was just frozen, totally immobile. The photograph captures this amazing event with perfect clarity. The editors titled the picture, "Hand of Hope." The text explaining the picture begins, "The tiny hand of 21-week-old fetus Samuel Alexander Armas emerges from the mother's uterus to grasp the finger of Dr. Joseph Bruner as if thanking the doctor for the gift of life." Little Samuel's mother said they "wept for days" when they saw the picture. She said, "The photo reminds us pregnancy isn't about disability or an illness, it's about a little person" Samuel was born in perfect health, the operation 100 percent successful. Now see the actual picture, and it is awesome...incredible....and hey, pass it on! The world needs to see this one!

    This is from the book Gramps, which is now out of print. This is a photo of a grandson taking care of his grandfather. One of the most moving photos I've ever seen.
