Signs of life amid misery reveal Filipinos' spirit

In this Monday Nov. 18, 2013 photo, children who survived Typhoon Haiyan play in their destroyed village on the outskirts of Tacloban, Philippines.  Countless families lost loved ones to the typhoon. Hundreds of thousands of survivors have endured unimaginable suffering. Tacloban was filled with hopeless, fear-filled faces. Even now, blackened bodies with peeling skin still lay by the roads, or are trapped under the rubble.  But as the crisis eases and aid begins to flow, hope is flickering. People smile, if only briefly, and joke, if only in passing. (AP Photo/David Guttenfelder)
