Just wanted to post some pictures of events throughout our history that are extremely powerful and moving to me.

Everyones welcome to contribute, so go ahead and open up your documents and start looking :o

I'll start with some of mine:

I honestly dont think words can begin to describe this

Posted Image

Buddhist monk who set himself on fire in protest of anti-buddhist policies, October 5th 1963

Posted Image
Posted Image

You've all seen it before

Posted Image

Hindenburg

Posted Image

Tsunami flood in 2005

Posted Image

Space shuttle Columbia disaster

Posted Image

Nagasaki

Posted Image

And how could you forget?

Posted Image

And finally, these are two pictures that I found on another forum, that gave me the inspiration to make this thread.

The kid who posted them said this:

"Right so these are two pictures that choke me up whenever I see them.

This is my friend Steve, saying bye to his brother, who's off to Iraq.

Posted Image

And this is my same friend months later, at his brother's funeral. Saying bye for the last time.

Posted Image

These pictures probrably won't have the same effect on you guys that they do on me, but they are still very powerful."

The whole thing just choked me up... :(

Anyway, obviously I've only scratched the surface, show me what you have :o.

I'll be posting more later

Holy Shit, this is more than what I signed up for when I came in. I gotta say though, those last two are deep. But I just feel like its not right that your posting them on the internet. I don't know, maybe it's just me.

Meaning there's no use applying because they won't be hired.

I don't know why, I found the black dude being lynched pretty fucked up. The natural disaster ones don't phase me that much. Colombine and crying soldier are deffinatly touching aswell. I like this thread:)
