    This picure is so beautiful yet simultaneously depicts such sorrow that brings tears to my eyes. We live in society that has become immune to peole less fortunate and rather than understandingthier story, we judge them and look to them as not being worth of human compassion. God bless this man in the photo  and the many more men and women like him. God bless the photographer as well who  cared enough to bring this lightto the many peopleviewingthis sight.

    I honestly wish and pray that people would have more compassion for each other.  We are all just living our lives as best we can.  I can only imagine what this man must see and feel everyday.  It is shameful to know that he is being mistreated.  I will pray for him.  One Love.

    I also want to say that this is a beautiful photo because it captures the sheer desperation and shame and hurt that this man feels.
