Some horrific pictures that really put this event into context for me. It is easy for me to forget suffering of others when I read a blip in the news and then move on, somehow images cement concepts into reality for me.

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments sometimes i am afraid that i am getting insulated from feeling compassionate by the volumes of bad news and suffering we are exposed to day after day via the media blitz. good photojournalism like the pictures in the link remind me that these are real people like you and i, not merely statistics
