These pictures really bring home the drama across the world. We are in a state of disagreement with the powers that be. The lies are being exposed and the people are tied of the current system. I love this time we are in. Let real freedom ring!

Blackeagle, thanks for posting the pictures. Some real eye-opening stuff here. I know they are from the Russian invasion of Ukraine from 2014 and this is the first chance I've had to see them.

A few thoughts on these:
1.) I feel very lucky to be living where I do, to see the carnage and chaos that exists in that country as a result of what had happened will make me extra thankful when my head hits the pillow tonight.
2.) Some of the pictures from Korea are also very interesting as it shows how a single person can drive an entire nation for good or evil. The Jung family has series power in Korea and many people don't realize the extent of his power.
3.) I hope for peace in the world and seeing the pictures from the Ukraine make me sad and hope there will be a peaceful resolution to the conflict.

It really is true a picture tells a thousand words. Sometimes you don't stop and realize how the current situation is in these countries and how much hurt the local civilians are feeling.

These pictures are outstanding. But brings to life how much death and destruction is in the world today. how many innocent people are effected by decisions of the government. people the military feel are just casualties of war. and the funny thing is the people who so easily allow those words to fall off their tongue are usually the ones sitting in a protected room making decisions that are sent to people actually fighting the war. As I went thru these pictures I saw the children and helpless elders and asked myself if I were a general or a leader of a country how could I justify my actions of an attack that was under researched, underdeveloped and underthought and killed hundreds of people, how could I sleep at night telling myself those children and old people were just casualties of war and forget it?

I think the photo of the bears is really cute and looks like a mother taking her babies for a ride. I hope you post more pictures in the future because I enjoy looking at them.

Love the picture of the bears - it reminds me that, with a little cooperation, we can accomplish so much. There are times when we all need a little help to get to the other side, and we should all be lucky enough to have someone in our lives who is willing to bare the burden for while.

Bangui, Central African Republic: I was heading back to the hotel to file after a ceremony in Bangui, where the interim president had promised to reinstate the country's armed forces, urging for national unity. I was in the taxi for just a few minutes when my fixer asked me to come back as people were attacking and killing a man.
