Durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial (1945), un niño japonés se paró delante de una pira funeraria y esperó su turno, para cremar a su pequeño hermano muerto. La persona que sacó la fotografía dijo, en una entrevista, que el niño se mordía tan fuerte los labios para no llorar que le caía sangre de la comisura de su boca. Fue entonces que el guardia le pidió el cuerpo y le dijo: “Dame la carga que traes en la espalda”. Y el niño respondió: “NO ES UNA CARGA, ES MI HERMANO”. Entregó el cuerpo, se dio la vuelta y se fue…
En Japón, incluso hoy en día, esta imagen se utiliza como símbolo de fuerza. Que esta foto sirva de ejemplo para los muchachos de hoy que sufren por palabras, que creen que el mundo se terminó porque la novia deshonrada lo cambió por otro. Jóvenes que desprecian a sus padres, haciéndolos llorar de disgusto por sus chantajes emocionales. ¡¡Crezcan!! Al mundo no le importan sus juegos emocionales. Su única alternativa es ser fuerte en este mundo.

Norma Jeane photographed by Andre de Dienes, 1945.
“[Conover] called me at the plant one morning later and said that all the pictures came out perfect also he said that I should by all means go into the modeling prof. He also said that I photographed very well and that he wants to take a lot more. Also he said he had a lot of contacts in which he wanted me to look into.” —A letter written by Norma in 1945 to Grace Goddard.
