Superstorm-Tree Of Hope
The "Tree Of Hope" in Union Beach N.J. on Dec. 12, 2012. A man helping neighbors gut their storm-wrecked homes found the artificial Christmas tree in the gutter with other storm debris a few days after Superstorm Sandy pummeled the Jersey shore. He then watched in amazement as the town made the tree its own, decorating it with hand-made ornaments, hand-scrawled messages of hope, lights and toys. (AP Photo/Wayne Parry)
