Snapshot of history revisited?

I woke up this woke up this morning turned on the news and saw a very disturbing photo. It was a picture of a father and daughter lying arm in arm dead on the bank of the Rio Grande River.

Like my friend Steve Snyder, I remember the Vietnam War. We had anti-war protests and demonstrations galore. Their was a photo published by the Associated Press that went viral. It was a picture of a 9-year-old girl running in the street arms outstretched crying with skin hanging from her arms from napalm dropped on her village.

That photo changed a lot of minds about that war. I hope that picture I saw this morning does the same. Aloha.
