I would like to thank Christine Till for nominating this photograph for the “Pay It Forward” group.

This is what Christine wrote about the photograph:

”I would like to nominate Cora Wandel’s powerful and intense image Gently into the Grave as a reminder, that Christmas time is not a time of joy for everyone.

We can go on about politics, but at this time so close to Christmas: Let’s take a moment and think about the families that have somebody they love missing this Christmas and send our heartfelt condolences to the children, parents, grandparents, spouses and friends of soldiers that made the ultimate sacrifice. All they have left is the memories of Christmases past. It must be heart wrenching.

Christmas is an especially difficult time for all soldiers of the world and the families they left at home. We owe these people more than we can ever re-pay."

Thank you Christine!
