Images Keep Searing

Warning
Iconic images from world disasters. They are disturbing
I mean them to
be



Images keep searing
Searing on my brain
Aftermaths of tragedy
Again, again, again



Fleeing from a napalm strike Vietnam


Boy in an ambulance covered in dust and blood an after airstrike.
Pulled from the Aleppo rubble


Todler drowned and washed ashore on Turkish beach fleeing Syria


The Falling Man Twin Towers 9/11



Afghan evacuation from Kabul


Desperate Afghans hang on to plane taking off



Images keep searing
Searing on my brain
Aftermaths of tragedy
Again, again, again
