My husband sent me a link to this while I was at work and everyone wondered why I was crying. Very heart-rending pictures. :crying::crying::crying:

Ok, maybe I'm a wimp. I cry at anything. But the pictures are very touching.

I'd also love to see one of the runners-up that were listed, the one with the Holocaust survivors.

I would actually say that I don't think we see enough of this kind of photo in the media. The reports on deaths are so clinical, just numbers with no connection to the PEOPLE that are the soldiers.
