He aint heavy, he's my brother

Recommended Posts

Inspiring as you say, bu the caption struck a different chord for me.


I recently described a photograph from a book I was reading. The guy I was talking to capped my description with "He ain't heavy, he's my brother."


The photograph showed a boy of about ten carrying his small brother in a piggy-back. So what?


He was at Nagasaki and was carrying his brother to be cremated because they had no parents to perform this last duty.
