The Symbols of Survival

In times of stress, how do we survive?  It seems we gather around one common symbol that holds some significant meaning.  I'm not just talking about religious symbols like The Cross or Star of David.  I'm talking about the smaller symbols.  Some of which are temporary.  Below is an example.  My friend Jay Howe who, in addition to choreographing pieces for Dance Theatre Fairbanks' upcoming production of "The Little Match Girl," is also designing costumes.  He explains how this impromptu symbol on his shirt held him together that day.
