A Mother's Journey: 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography
I'm speechles ...
Life... What a odd thing..
wow, thats just sad...
That was powerful.
I moved this to P&CE where it will hopefully get more visibility. It was bound to get lost in Off Topic.
I just discovered that you can turn on the captions. That just made it ten times worse.
I am speechless.
And very touched.
It's very hard to look at.
Number 18 is quite something.
Having perfect kids is a lot more rare than you'd think. This is just part of a mother's love. Your kids are EVERYTHING to you. Mine both have their issues, and you deal with them, no matter how horrible it seems to the outside world. No doubt that mother still lived for that child's smile and happiness, and lived to make that child know that her love was unconditional.
The final picture shows the dual feelings of missing your child, as no child should die before it's parent, and the understanding that this being is finally out of the pain and misery that was everyday life.
In life, we all have to play the cards we're dealt.
Very moving indeed - very brave mom and son.
yeah. it did.
It things like this that really bring home how unfair life is. There are countless people out there who are truly evil and continue living quite happily, yet that poor boy had to suffer all of that before having his life cut short before it had really begun. That's something no parent should have to go through.
Man... that was hard to get through.
It's sad how unfair life is... Very moving indeed.
I think about pictures like this whenever some politician tells me that stem cell research is morally wrong, and that federal funding shouldn't be used to support it. I don't know if it would have helped this child, but the fact that it has the possibility to cure so many problems makes me extremely frustrated and angry with any roadblocks to medical progress.
Let me guess, they're all religious too? I think the church has done more to hinder scientific research and delay possible cures for diseases than any other organisation.
i can't express the feelings i have while i watched that. as a parent it killed me.
I've found that a tragedy like this does one of two things: strengthens faith to the point where an individual is incapable of questioning any of their beliefs, or destroys their faith completely. There really is no in between ground.
It's amazing how being a father can mutiply by 10 everything you feel related to childrens. Especially sad things like these. It just takes you at the throat.
