Powerful Images

I'm quite sure most everyone here understands how powerful an image can be. I thought it might be interesting to know about images anyone has seen that truly touched them, changed their mind about an issue, made them cry, made them laugh.. etc.
Mine is attached, this one completley changed my mind about abortion. Also, this isn't intended as a political discussion or argument. The baby shown in the photo, could've been legaly aborted.


The story can be found here

Imagery is a powerful tool. That's why it's used so much.

The image that bothered me was when we were living in Europe during the 80s and we were touring. One of our stops was the Dachau concentration camp in Germany. There were gruesome images of mass bodies but that I expected and they didn't bother me. What did bother me was this huge wall that held the names of all the concentration camps throughout Europe and their subsidiaries. It seemed to stretch on forever covered in names and it was at that moment that the number 6 million started to become real to me. For the first time I could actually see the number.

That is certainly a powerful image Ken. We had neighbors who had a son with Spina bifida. At the time, I'm not sure there was much they could do for it, and he was in a wheel chair, and brain damaged. He lived a short life. It's great to know that help is available for problems of this sort. That picture is hard to look at, but it really packs a punch.

Actually, this is

Dear Friends and Family,
Samuel arrived on Thursday, Dec. 2 at 6:25 pm at Northside Hospital weighing 5 lbs 11 oz and 20 1/2 " long. He was born at 36 weeks but came into the world screaming his head off! He did not have to spend any time in a neonatal unit and came home with us on Monday, Dec. 6. After viewing an ultrasound of his brain, Samuel's neurosurgeon was very optimistic as he does not have any hydrocephalus and the brain malformation has resolved. He is moving his legs very well from the hips and some from the knees. He was frank breech (folded in half) in the womb and the orthopedist feels that he has a good chance for walking. He will begin physical therapy next week in order to work out some of the stiffness in his legs that was a result of his being folded in half in the womb. He is also nursing very well.
Thank you all for your pro-life prayers and support. We are happier than we ever dreamed possible!

All our love, Julie, Alex and Samuel Armas
