Where there is strength, there is life

I was visiting my family, in a poor region near my city, in Minas Gerais, Brazil. The road was very irregular, and the car very low. My brother and I had to leave the car and go by foot the rest of the way. It was a very hot and sunny day. In the middle of the way, I saw this ant, and its effort to carry the leaf made me think about how deep life energy is around us.
