In this May 16, 2015 photo, former slave fisherman Myint Naing, bows down as his mother, Khin Than, pours water with traditional tamarind soap on his head to cleanse away evil spirits before he enters their family home following their reunion in Mon State Myanmar after spending 22 years apart. His mother was like him: She never gave up. She prayed for him every day, and asked fortune tellers year after year about her son. They assured her he was alive, but in a faraway place difficult to leave. (AP Photo/Gemunu Amarasinghe)
