It was very dramatic for all in place because all of them saw it by their own eyes. But what about wars? How about weapons production? I think that those who invents, manufacture, sells weapons never saw how people die from their business. They never put themselves on place of murdered people.

The thing is that, things like these happen on a daily basis around the globe and it goes unnoticed.
Thanks for sharing. Maybe Erica’s pain will be that much lesser when more and more people read this.
When Micheal Jackson’s daughter cried on stage, the whole world cried with her, but what about Erica ?

As editorial photographers, we sometimes feel like we are in the tight spots for all the ‘wrong’ reasons. Sometimes, it’s hard to justify our presence for the sake of “documenting the moment”. But I’m glad u showed us these pictures, and more importantly, explained what went on behind these images. This is only the beginning of the story of loss, pain, and recovery in a hard world.

Your photo of Erica, as she covers her mouth and begins to cry, cuts right through to my emotions. This world can be a nasty place, and life as we know it, can change instantly. I will give my two daughters and extra big hug today.
