I found this under NBC's greatest photos 2005. I'm having nightmares about it. What are your thoughts? PLEASE NOTE - THIS IS NOT FOR SENSITIVE VIEWERS!

I think we are all responsible. Every person who ever had a feeling of hate, resentment, envy, superiority or racism is resposible in some way...

It actually brought tears to my eyes . I wonder if someday armies could agree if they had to fight to avoid anywhere civilians are ,especially children . One thing that consoles is the fact that children usually cannot appreciate the whole of the situation , so while at the moment the picture were took she appeared distraught ,a few moments later she might be sleeping like an angel .Older people in similar conditions might actually get severely sick or even die from the GRIEF .

Man that picture is really horrifying. It is so sad. I put a special emphasis on the children on another discussion. The sad part is that no matter who is right or wrong the children are always innocent and because of the war they are traumatized and will undoubtedly be dealing with emotional issues their entire life.

That is so true. The biggest and worst crimes committed are those against children.

That's a disturbing picture. War for sure has undone so many. And I feel responsible in some way, because this is happening in a world which is constituted of me too. We are all so helpless, and that is the the worst thing about it.

True, will she ever be ok, or did her mind just blow. I can't help wondering - did she survive and will she become a fighter for the betterment of humanity or will she become another soldier filled with hate and resentment...

That is a disturbing picture. I can feel her pain and fear radiate through that picture. The photo certainly is great in that it sure sparks up a emtional response from me.

Thank you for replying, I thought this post was never going to get a response. Yes, I've seen a lot of pictures of the war, but this one... I don't know what to say. I think its an accusation to the whole human conscience. There is another that goes with it. I will post it later.

I don't seem to be able to post a photo on an open discussion anymore. Doesn't give me the option. So I'm not going to start another post, what I will do - I'm going to put some of the war photos under "My Photo's". You are welcome to look at them there, or if you want to - sent private message with your e-mail and I can mail it to you.
