Reader reaction to Reuters news
However, this weekend a photograph that appeared in The Vancouver Sun touched me in a way that lingers even now. I am referring to the photograph capturing the incalculable grief of a father on the heels of the knife attack at a daycare in Belgium. Rarely have I seen a photo that so deeply and poignantly captures the horror, bewilderment, confusion and grief on the heels of a human tragedy.
I looked at the image for a long time. Later, my husband came to me and showed me the image. He too had had the same reaction. I would like to send my compliments to Yves Herman and also to suggest to you that this image is worthy of submission for a Pulitzer prize.
Thank you for your kind words. Here are two Yves Herman photos of the tragedy that were used in the Sun: GBU Editor
