Schools Hold Their Future

Ever since the tsunami tragedy I've wondered endlessly about the school children in South Asia who were now uprooted from their normal every day lives. The New York Times today has a report on some students first day of school since the tsunami struck. There are also MUST SEE photographs in their multimedia section. Here's an excerpt from this very moving article By DAVID ROHDE.
