WWII Red Cross Girl

I thought this vintage photo and the attached caption were very affecting.

The caption reads: “It hardly matters whether the evocation of Joan of Arc in this photograph was intentional or not. (Is that needle just another, smaller version of Joan’s sword?) In the end, everything about this cover, from the brooding cross behind the nurse to the courage in her steady gaze, points to one message: Trouble is coming. Let’s get ready.”

You can be ready for any trouble (disaster) that comes your way too!
