‘strength': robert ray’s amazing photo, colorado 7/2012

The Big Picture on the Aurora Colorado shooting: 'Strength'

photo: robert ray/associated press

Readers often remark what a relief it is to read ‘the improvised life’s daily email each morning, and find positive stories rather than the dire straits constantly reported in the news. We’re very aware of the fact that we write what we need to read and remember: the huge reservoir of creativity and good that is flowing around all the time…even in the midst of the worst possible events.

Some times we need to bear witness to the immense strength and spirit that endures despite of them. So we post this photograph taken from The Big Pictures photo essay in the aftermath of the Aurora, Colorado shootings. 

‘Strength’.
