I realize some of these pictures are repeats but I didn't feel like I need to remove them. The impact is still the same. 1. Grief Robert Peraza kneels down in grief before his son’s name on the 9/11 Memorial. 2. “Come Home, Daddy” A little boy tries to help his alcoholic father stand up in Guangzhou, China 3. Monster Ariel Castro pleads to the judge during his sentencing. Castro was sentenced to life without parole for abducting three women and keeping them in solitary confinement in a case that sparked national outrage. Castro was considered, by all accounts, an upstanding citizen who regularly hosted barbecue parties in the backyard for his neighbors, even as the three women remained confined in a separate part of the house. 4. Collapse Bangladeshi volunteers and rescue workers try to help survivors after the collapse of the 8-story building, “Savar”, where garment workers made clothes for Western fashion brands. Over 300 people died in the collapse, prompting outrage across the nation and compelling fashion brands to demand better work conditions from their clothing suppliers. 5. Hope Remains, Still A missionary holds the hand of a little boy in Sudan 6. Solitary Walker A little boy walks to school through terraced rice paddy fields in China. This image is emblematic of the sweeping changes across the country. As China hurtles into modernity, scenes like this are becoming increasingly rare with the agriculture sector shrinking. 7. “We Are Not Done Cleaning” On May 20, an EF5 tornado ripped through the town of Moore, Oklahoma. This was just one sign left behind by a family whose home had been completely devastated by the tornado. 8. A Soldier’s Despair US soldier, Ken Kozakiewicz, cries in despair after learning that the body bag at his feet contains the body of his friend, Andy Alaniz. This photo won the World Press Photo award in 1991 9. D-Day Soldiers wade ashore the Normandy beach on D-Day during the Second World War. Years later, Steven Spielberg would recreate the dread, the horror, and the sheer madness of this maneuver in the iconic opening scene of Saving Private Ryan. 10. Man’s Best Friend A man hugs his dog after finding it stranded inside his home following a massive tornado in Alabama. 11. Man’s Best Friend, Part II A Japanese man cries after finding his lost dog following the 2011 Tsunami. 12. Earthrise The Earth, seen from the surface of the moon. 13. Last Hug A man embraces his wife following the collapse of a garment factory in Bangladesh. This was their last gesture as the building collapsed around them – not panic, fear, or even a resolute attempt at escape, but a simple acceptance of their fate and a desire to hold each other in their final moments. 14. Eyes of Hunger, Eyes of Hope Indian men line-up for a free meal on the occasion of Id-Ul-Fitr near Jama Mazjid, New Delhi. Most of these men are rickshaw-pullers, daily-wage laborers and homeless men who rarely get two square meals a day. 15. Comforting the Weak A rescue worker offers water to a Koala bear following devastating fires across Australia in 2011. 16. The Big Leap A man jumps past a wall of burning tires set alight by rioters protesting against government corruption in Brazil. The protests were initially against a rise in bus fares, but soon turned into a broader movement against crony-capitalism that has wrecked Brazil’s economy in the last few years. 17. When Berlin Fell A Russian soldier raises the Soviet flag over the ruins of Berlin at the fag end of the Second World War 18. Flower Power A young woman defiantly places a flower in the barrel of a gun – an image that would herald the “Flower Generation”. 19. “Wait For Me, Daddy” A little boy races after his father as he sets off for the war in 1940. Unfortunately, the boy’s father died during the war. This is probably the last picture that exists of the boy and his father together. 20. Till Death Do Us Part The graves of a Protestant woman and her Catholic husband. The Protestant-Catholic cemeteries were separated by a wall, which couldn’t stop this couple from being together even in death.
