I love this picture. It shows a small black boy sitting among the rubble of the 1900 Galveston Hurricane. This was one of the most devastating natural disasters in American History, and claimed over 8,000 lives, and destroyed the city of Galveston. With all this, the little boy manages a smile. Caption on the photo indicates that the little boy said, "I'm glad I'se living". What a wonderful picture of the indomitable American spirit.
