Arizona farm gives refuge from pain, for man and beast alike

Erik Denton stands for a portrait at the Selah Carefarm in Cornville, Ariz., Oct. 4, 2022. The 35-year-old repeat visitor is certain he can't ever get over the deaths of his three children last year, but he's functioning again. He does the dishes and makes his bed. He doesn't hole up alone for days at a time. He's again able to talk about the children he loves. Denton feels as if he can connect with people here more than anywhere else. "Even though we're surrounded by so much pain, we're together," he says. "We're in it together." (AP Photo/Dario Lopez-Mills)
