Dear spiritual goddess, if this image does not shock the hell out of you like it did me, you need some pills for compassion of humanity. If any image conveys the message, “War is hell and wrong”, this is the image. Excellent capture Rick Loomis of the Los Angeles Times photo staff.? War is bad…mmmmkay!
