The Picture that Broke My Heart...




Can you hold your tears... look closer for you might see all the anguish in this child's cry...


Look closer for you might see his neck streched, his vocal chords strained too tired too scared to look at his amputated arm...


One hand trying to hug his dad searching for comfort from all this pain... no more tears left to shed...


I can almost hear his choked weeping... Listen, you can almost hear his cry...


His father's eyes sadness, confusion and despair locked inside... You can almost read his eyes: "I wish I could do something my son but I can't... I'll just hold your face to the other side so you won't see what's left of your arm, don't look for you might be scared of all the bleeding my little one... I'll stay beside you until you forget you had too hands... I know you wanted to hug me with both arms, with all your strength but you can't... Patience.... shhhhh patience... "


Can you see the anguish in his eyes... I ASK YOU AGAIN... Can you hold your Tears...


Can you tell him its WRONG to blow yourself up in a crowd... Just sit back and watch those who did this to your child?


Frankly I CAN'T... I wish I could but I simply can't...

It's ironic how you can see another child crying the same way because his parents won't buy him Play Station Three.

Hi,
I just stumbled upon your blog by linking from Sileas. Just wanted to let you know the video "Invisible Children" is available on google video. I just found it yesterday myself and was absolutely stunned by it. Here's the link (if it doesn't get cut off)
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=3166797753930210643&q=Invisible+children
(darn, I think it got cut off but just go to google video and find it there.

Hi Robin,
Who would have thought there was so much suffering... kids kidnapped from their homes butchered abused and the strongest enrolled to become fighters for the resistance... Too many unheard tragedies...
