    Losing her Parents


    ADVERTISING




    at age 5 at a night checkpoint in
    Tal Afar, a mistaken U.S. shooting


    She wails, bloodied hands
    reaching out as if
    groping for answers.

    On the ground, blood spots
    bloom like the scarlet
    flowers on her dress

    -- a pain never redressed.

    Christopher T. George

    See photograph by the late war photographer Chris Hondros at "Samar Hassan screamed after her parents were killed by U.S. soldiers in Iraq in 2005."

    That has to be one of the most heartbreaking Photographs you will ever see. When you see something like this, you understand why there is so much hate !

    Thanks Chris !

    Too shocking to even post a comment.
    Any words seem inadequate .. .. and the saddest part is that the world will never learn or change. There will be more wars, killings and heartache.
