Japanese heroic brother

An American photographer, Joe O'Donnell clicked the above photograph during the World War II in 1945.

A Japanese boy stands in line carrying his dead younger brother at a crematorium.

Blood dripped from the side of the boy's mouth shows his braveness, as he bit his lips hard to control the tears with zeal not to cry.

The guard asked, "Give me the load you are carrying in your bag"

The photographer recorded the boy's reply, "This is not a load to feel hard to carry, this is my brother."

In Japan today, this photograph is still used as a symbol of strength.

Yes, it is not what we carry. How we feel about it is important.

There is a lesson in this for today's generation who cheat relatives for money and cut off their cousins
