A leaf alone

Isn't it interesting that when I look at this picture, my mind tells me that the sun hurts my eyes and I squint?!

Does it happen to you?

James Kim: Father, Husband, Hero

Eleven days ago, a family traveling from Oregon on the way home to San Francisco went missing.  After an intense 9 day search, their vehicle is located on a snow-covered back road that they took a wrong turn onto.  Only the wife and two small girls aged 4 years and 7 months were present.  The wife/mother fed the kids all the food they had and then had to breast feed both children to keep them alive.  She did this in overnight temperatures of 20 degrees for 9 days and nights.

James Kim, the husband and father left on Saturday morning for help telling his wife he will return in a few hours if he can't find help  Today, on the eleventh day, his body was found "a long distance" away from the car by SWAT team members who were lowered from a helicopter.  There were literally 100s of rescuers out there, living on adrenaline in hopes to find him alive - they must feel horrible today.

I really feel a connection to James and his family.  First, I have watched him on CNET, secondly he has two little girls. I have been hoping he would be found alive, but I guess it wasn't meant to be.  I can totally see myself in what he did.  If I was in that situation, I would have done the exact same thing James did - he had to go for help - he had no way of knowing how long it would be until someone came.  He had to do whatever it took so his children and wife could live on. 

I guess that's my true definition of a father and husband and a hero.  Godspeed, James.  You died knowing that you did everything in your power to get help for your family, and they will know it forever.
