How Can They Smile?

Seeing children's faces.....
The ones that were
Turned into orphans
In a matter of minutes,
They smile,
They laugh,
They are happy.

How can they smile
After going through
What they went through?

Where do they find the courage?

Children seem to have much more of an
ability to recover from a tragedy than
adults do for some reason. I guess it's
God's way of helping the weak cope.
Nice compassionate write.
