Finally, I have to leave this here.

For roughly two months, I have kept a tab open in my Firefox Web browser.  It contains one of the saddest Web pages I have ever seen.  I do not mean that the code or design or CSS is wonky.  I mean that it displays a heartbreaking image from a photo journalism contest.  The photo breaks me down into tears every time I glance at it.  I haven't been able to close the tab.  I shut down Firefox, but when it starts back up the next day, it reloads the tabs.  Every time, this image of this boy is there.  This broken, six year-old boy who looks so much like my own six year-old boy.  And every time I see it, I cannot stop thinking of the cruelty of this life, the fact that we have been robbed of life that never had a chance to flourish.

I need to make peace with the photograph.  I need to find some way to resolve my feelings about it.  The only thing I can think to do is to link to the photograph, to make this the funeral for everything wrong with the image that I cannot get out of my head.  And after I make this post, I will close the tab, and then I will go and kiss my son as he sleeps, and I will thank God that he is still with me.
