Picture of the Year
2007 Picture of the Year
After all the votes were counted, this is what people voted as the Picture of the Year. This was done by the Today Show on NBC. This photo sparked a lot of controversy, but you can just look at the picture once and know the message behind it. I assume the woman didn’t lose her car keys and is probably grieving over a husband that got killed in Iraq or Afghanistan. I don’t know any truthful details about this photo, I am just assuming it’s her husband. The deceased person may be a relative, neighbor, co-worker or just a family friend. I think most see that picture and determine its her husband and he probably lost his life; while fighting the war on terror.
Our troops are losing their lives everyday on foreign soil. Its important we never forget their sacrifice and we remember them and photos like this. There’s too many politics being played out and we debate everyday if we should be in places like Iraq. I think we should support our troops more and work more as Americans instead of Democrats or Republicans. Let’s never forget all the troops that have died over the years and those that died in 2007. We will probably have deaths to deal with in 2008 too.
The death toll was down in the month of December and hopefully that number continues to decline. Some think Iran is a big part of the decline and they may not be training militants on their side of the border. We need all the help we can get and even if we don’t see eye-to-eye with Iran, we hopefully can continue to expect them to help us in the fight on terror. I hope this women finds comfort that is in the picture and all the women and children can find comfort, that have lost parents and loved ones in the war on terror.Click here for reuse options!
