That picture

I’m not showing that picture. You’ve seen it in the past 24 hours. It joins historically-significant photos such as the one of the woman and the kids during the Dust Bowl, and the naked girl running in Vietnam. It does more in one second than all the rhetoric in the world, and perhaps will lead to real change. And then there’s the father’s quote: “Even if you give me all the countries in the world, I don’t want them. What was precious is gone.” (Abdullah Kurdi). Powerful.
