La foto, a primo impatto tragica, è di Carol Guzy, fotografa americana del Washington Post, che nel marzo del 1999 si trova nel campo profughi di Kukes, al confine dell’Albania, per documentare le conseguenze della guerra del Kosovo per cui si stava operando una “pulizia etnica” a danno dei kosovari albanesi.
Agim Shala ha due anni quando viene passato al di là del filo spinato. Molti pensano sia un gesto disperato, un bambino che viene separato dalla famiglia per essere salvato e invece è esattamente il contrario.
Il piccolo sta per essere riconsegnato ai genitori ritrovati, e la Guzy riesce a immortalare il momento.
Lo scatto, intenso e semplice insieme, vince il premio Pulitzer nel 2000. L’autrice ne spiegerà la forza dicendo “è la forza dei ritratti dei bambini, completamente in balia degli eventi che si svolgono intorno a loro e incapaci di proteggersi... In realtà è una foto gioiosa. Le famiglie che erano riuscite a fuggire non sapevano se i loro cari fossero sopravvissuti o meno, per cui si allineavano lungo il recinto nella speranza di vederli arrivare. Quando una famiglia ha visto i parenti dall’altra parte del filo spinato, hanno immediatamente consegnato loro i bambini in attesa di ricongiungersi .” #followforlike #follow4like #likeforlikes #followforfollowback #baby #war #tragedia #tragedy #border #amazing #picoftheday #picture #awesome #awesomeness

Literally shed tears when this news broke out this morning. Although it's likely to be vetoed in any case by Trump, it sends a strong message to the White House over anger the Senate is feeling.
The resolution notes "the United States-Saudi Arabia relationship is important to United States national security and economic interests" but calls on @riyadh to "moderate its increasingly erratic foreign policy." "We will not continue to have our military posture dictated by a despotic, murderous regime in Saudi Arabia," said Senator @berniesanders, an independent who votes with the @thedemocrats
"One night the military came to Lila Lopchan’s home, taking away her husband claiming they 'had a job for him'. Lopchan never saw her husband again and, 16 years later, she still doesn’t know what happened to him." Nepal’s bloody decade of civil war made it a world leader in daily abductions. Torture and murders committed by the army, police and Maoist rebels left 17,000 people dead or missing. But 12 years on the perpetrators of war crimes are going unpunished, as victims and relatives of the disappeared lose hope of justice.

After settling in with his family in Seattle, Washington, veteran John Beal suffered three heart attacks within a year of returning from the war. At the hospital, he was not only told that he had PTSD, but the doctor said that he only had about four more months to live, so the doctor recommended that he “get a hobby”. As a means of clearing his head, Beal walked to Hamm Creek to contemplate his future. Though he was being faced with an immediate death, he took particular notice of how polluted the waterway was. The yellowed water, which had been sullied by a nearby sewage plant, was filled with broken cars, dead fish, and rotting debris. Local children would caution people to avoid getting into the water, otherwise they might emerge from the creek covered in rashes. Beal started cleaning the river by removing all the trash and garbage. He then realized that aquatic wildlife were still unable to survive in the creek because the water flow continued into a series of underground pipes, so he removed the pipes. After years of hard work, Hamm Creek is now a flourishing wildlife oasis that is resplendent with healthy greenery and wild salmon. As fate would have it, Beal passed away in 2006 – which is 27 years later than the doctor’s original prognosis.
