Some very poignant images of the war in Iraq

We really have it so easy...

I have my own problems, but they’re all psychological. God knew what he was doing when he made me. Because I simply could not deal with such situations. I have said that it’s a good thing that I’m pretty, else I might have attempted suicide. I am so fragile, and it’s taken so long to build up some semblance of self-esteem. I could not imagine life as some of these people must live. And then seeing that little boy with no arms... My body is so precious to me, my sight... I just couldn’t deal with losing something like that. I am so fortunate to have what I have, the love, the surroundings, the gifts. But.. my inner world is so much different. I still feel so lost...

This is the picture I was looking for originally, by the way. I saw it in the newspaper. It just.. speaks...

Images like that always depress me. I can't even watch the commercials on tv with the starving children. It almost physically hurts. When the rest of the world is suffering.. here I am in relative luxury. That makes me feel terrible sometimes.
