War does not stop for Christmas...

I wanted to add something meaningful for Christmas. The attached photo is not mine. It belongs to Russell Lee Klika. I do not know Russell nor did I seek his work out. I came across his work as a favorite of another bubbler. I was struck by Russell’s work because it does not get any more real and sobering than many of his images.I am typically finding ways to rail on the system and my images are never favorable of war. However my images are pale compared to the reality that Russell has captured by being there. He is truly brave in my eyes. As we consume ourselves into oblivion for Christmas, I just want to remind everyone that war does not stop for Christmas. There are families around the world whose lives are altered, no matter what day it is. If these wars have affected you and yours I hope you will find peace somehow. If it has not, I hope you will at least take a moment to contemplate and feel for those who have. You could start by visiting Russell’s photos…
