In the last 48 hours, I watched as over 700 photographers became a part of a movement to donate some of their work in order to raise money through auction to aid Japan. The posts repeated this refrain, "Thank you for the opportunity to help." Aline Smithson, creator of www.lenscratch.blogspot.com and Crista Dix at Wallspace Gallery and others worked tirelessly to offer us the chance to make a difference.

I am reminded of the day I asked Aunt Ruth how she stayed determined during a life of joy and tremendous loss. She said, "My faith helps me, but I accept that life isn't easy. You must have a will to live, and that will comes from loving people."
