Compassion by taintedbliss Compassion by taintedbliss
Grandma's children are in jail and her grandchildren live with her. She is poor. They do not have enough food to eat. She is tired. She does not have the energy to look after 6 children or so.

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-02-05
Suggester says, "It might not be an amazing photograph in itself but the emotion it portrays, specially when you read the artist's comment, just strikes the heart right through to the core and at least I want to help this woman. So when you think about it, this really is an amazing shot."

This is an excellent journalistic shot and for that reason surely deserves this DD. Well done. Your camera captured what you saw with your heart wide open.

If I was an angel with wings, I would wrap them around her and her grandchildren and wipe their tears away and try to bring them joy...

Since I am but Human, I pray with all my heart and soul that someone out there will be able to help them and give them what they need...

This is an amazing capture. The instant I saw it, it struck me right in the heart. It hurts to see other people suffering like this, and just makes me wish I could do something to fix everything.

This is a very emotional photograph.

You could do something. Go give a sad person a hug, volunteer somewhere or if you have the finances, give some money... :)

Awww... Its heart breaking.
Its stories like this which one part want me to fly to them and help them as much as I can and on the other hand they also remind me how much blessed I am and how ignorant I become of all the blessings some times and dont thank enough !
So Thank you GOD for giving us so much.. & Please make us strong enough to help the ones in need around us - amen
Its a beautiful picture =]
