WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT International pressure mounted on the Assad regime in Syria following a massacre of 108 people, nearly half of them children, in the Houla region. Olympic hopefuls trained for the London Games in far flung locations and Joplin, Missouri, marked one year since tornadoes ripped through the area. 70 PHOTOS

My wrenching heart…this should not be happening in the 21st century.

The photo of the infant in Yemen rips my heart out and I am not one with ‘soft’ hearted propensities. Few images in my life have had as profound an effect on me as the one of that poor child. Should anyone ever again ask why it is America tries to help others around the world. I’ll place this image in my minds eye as a guide to frame my reply.
