Heart

Seen along the Jersey shore
Courtesy of the men and women working to clean up and rebuild



Ready for a new season ...


... regardless of the surroundings



Looking out to the horizon wearing a little Red Cross cap



Waving to NY



At the base there is a tiny bandage that says "bent not broken"



You've gotta have heart
All you really need is heart
When the odds are sayin' you'll never win
That's when the grin should start
You've gotta have hope
Musn't sit around and mope
Nuthin' half as bad as it may appear
Wait'll next year and hope …
