These kids were evacuated from Bristol during WW2 and sent to the country where they had a great time - well, sort of! Better than being bombed. The main issue though is that they were resilient and I wonder how our own kids today would fare in a similar situation?

Just wrote about how to build resilient kids. The photo explains how resilient kids had to be during WW2 . Makes you think about our own kids today or other children in war torn areas!

Can you REALLY see the effects of depression in the brain, as this video suggests?
