The photographs are devastatingly beautiful, and they tell the story of those days as only photos can. I am sure that had anyone asked you for a hand, you would have gladly put your camera down and given it. I read nothing in the tone of your piece that sought glory, rather, it showed only empathy and respect for the people that were photographed and the tragedy that they were living.

Whatever our job, law enforcement, fire fighting, EMS, grocery clerk, physician, librarian, housekeeper, attorney, we are all human beings first. Your inability to understand that and put down your camera (even after you’ve shot a few frames) is telling of your lack of humanity. What if someone was dying under that wall? If you had you taken the time to help lift it and perhaps save a human life, a mother, a father, a child, a grandparent, you would have been more human for it. You chose not to, but put your need to be someone such as a photojournalist above it. Your entire article “Their Scars, Our Scars” is hypocritical–saving a life is more important that clicking a photo. “And then we move on;” your article is glorifying you and your job. How backassward is that?
