This is perhaps the most powerful, devastating, and amazing photo I’ve ever seen; the emotions it generates are difficult to describe.
The scene is heartbreaking; yet there is a serenity, a peace that I cannot explain.
My heart goes out to all those who suffer from such tragedies and those who work tirelessly to alleviate the effects.
NOTE: Make sure you view the photo at full size or on the boston.com site, the resizing is pretty brutal.
