The Human Condition

12 Dec

Today, I came across this photograph from 1999 of a Kosovar-Albanian refugee by Peter Turnley.

It has burnt a hole in my eyes, brain and heart.

All the sorrows of the world reflected in that pair of eyes.
Haunting. Disturbing. Unforgettable. Confronting. Unbearable.

Never have I felt more powerless.

Never have I felt more ashamed of the human race – the most inhumane species of all.
