(It was always one of my favorites, flipping through "Family of Man" as a young 'un...)


  1. great song, and what a picture!

  2. There is such a gripping, soulful element to that image. The heavy blanket of clouds and lone house seem ominous, yet the children - somber faced as they are - offer a glimmer of hope to this powerful setting.
