Amidst tragedy and devastation there are stories that glow with hope and optimism. The outpouring of aid is the greatest ever. More countries are helping more people than ever before, cutting across political, religious and social boundaries. While I have been lodged in despair, adrift in articles about the tsunami, and the victims, I have turned a corner to find the good, the pearls, the good. We can never replace what was lost, that which perishes can never be restored. Yet, we must seek the good, the brave, the task of the survivors, all of us, and how we respond. The test is upon us, not on those who meta watery death. The test is upon us to live up to the potential, the unbridled human potential for good.
