Survival stories may bring comfort

SOS: Stories of Survival

Children frightened by the earthquake in Haiti may be reassured by these stories of young people surviving other disasters such as fires, landslides, tsunamis, and hurricanes. All the stories are tragic and often heart-breaking, but the courage and resilience seen throughout provide a measure of inspiration and hope. Each tale ends with a note on the lessons learned and the actions taken to prevent future calamity.
