Young girls leave a camp for internally displaced persons to gather firewood in Darfur, Sudan. For some, the work will take more than seven hours, lead them past government checkpoints and leave them exposed to attacks from militants and bandits. Girls as young as eight have been raped, attacked and killed on such errands. Ron Haviv / VII

This is an image from Darfur, Sudan, the most recent example of genocide in our world. This young girl presents herself with dignity, pride and a quiet and powerful resilience. It makes me believe that no matter how difficult life may become, one can survive.
