I was browsing through tumblr.com earlier and saw the image above.♥ I've always liked photos like this, they are very touching and warms my heart.  Then I also checked the link tagged along with this photo.

What I have discovered were 137 amazing and varied photos spanning the length of the war. It really moved me, if I was not at the office, I would have cried myself out. (OMG the hormones!) I was really touched, I could imagine how hard it was for all these people. The soldiers at war and all the civilians that were affected by the war. The fear, I could only imagine. I am just glad that my father nor my husband in not in this profession, being a soldier. Imagine how brave they are! willing to fight and to die for their country, for their fellowmen. My great respect goes to all of you. You should see these photos, they are really stunning and heart breaking but heart warming as well. I would like to post all the photos here but they are just too many, better check it our for yourself. :)

Here's the link:
