Simple joys

Powerline posts an email from a Navy pilot flying relief missions in Aceh, and it gives a personal perspective on the tragedy. Here's my favorite part:

Once the offload was complete and we began to take off, several of the children rushed under the helos in order to have the rotor wash send them tumbling along the ground. The joy on their faces at such a simple pleasure after what they had just endured brought a smile to my face, and I was happy if, even for a moment, I was able to make them forget the catastrophe they had witnessed.
