a Dead Baby in His Arms
This is a particular moving image depicting the devastating consequences of war. I do not have the details about this particular image, only that it caused great grief when i first saw it in an email. But then, any pictures of dead children are devastating in scope.
Evidently this soldier is deeply moved by the death of this little baby. He will never forget this little child and this moment will likely haunt him for the rest of his days. He seems to be a soldier of great love, caring and courage. Hopefully he will go on to find a truly hopeful and peaceful way to reconcile the things he has born witness to.
The baby is so completely innocent in all of this. One day laughing, smiling, patting little hands together, the next day terrified, killed, then held in a bloody blanket by a stranger. But the stranger weeps for him or her… as do we all.
If anyone has any details about this image, please let me know.
Thanks to Kitt for sending : )
