Everyones welcome to contribute, so go ahead and open up your documents and start looking
I'll start with some of mine:
I honestly dont think words can begin to describe this
Buddhist monk who set himself on fire in protest of anti-buddhist policies, October 5th 1963
You've all seen it before
Tsunami flood in 2005
Space shuttle Columbia disaster
And how could you forget?
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.
And this is my same friend months later, at his brother's funeral. Saying bye for the last time.
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 .
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.
I personally asked him if it was ok. Thanks for the concern though...
And I couldn't help it, I'm posting more in a bit here

Separation wall being built in Palestine, Bansky art
French and American testing of A-bombs in Mid-Pacific I'm pretty sure
Martin Luther King
John F. Kennedy, a picture taken sometime during the Cuban Missle Crisis I'm pretty sure. I thought it truly showed the stress he was under during his presidency, and how lonely the job can be.
A black man that was lynched by the KKK...
More of 9/11
Separation between whites and blacks
Not sure where or when it was taken, but it's a very interesting picture
More of the Tsunami
Not sure of the origin of this picture either, looks like a destroyer under attack
A very cool picture
A lady crying as she is forced to hail Hitler
And JollyRoger I thought you might find this interesting
Thats all for now... I'm out, gonna try and get some sleep

Vietcong being executed by Vietnamese General
War in Iraq
Workers that were building the Empire State Building eating lunch
Not sure of the origin of this picture, looks pretty recent
