The day after Thanksgiving is what they call Black Friday. On this day there are places in our country where combat shoppers in a buying frenzy trample each other and get into fights over 2-dollar toasters. People get hurt, sometimes killed, every year. Instead of driving everyone off it's become a sort of macabre advertising. Alternatively, the day after Thanksgiving is also, 'Buy Nothing Day,' an international movement for people who refuse to shop at all on Black Friday.

And though she's been through more than it seems possible for one person to survive, her story is remarkable not only for the trauma she endured, but also for the way that, now 88, she's managed to come into the "sun" of her life, finding and giving love in spite of all she went through.
