Color Of Tears


Baghdad - The mother of Samah Hussein grieves over the body at a Baghdad morgue. The boy was among 12 people reportedly killed by a suicide car bombing outside the U.S. military's Camp Cuervo. (Photo by Samir Mizban, June 13, 2004. A Pulitzer Prize winning photo)

Tears are colorblind. Love knows no country or race. Bonds are universal. Pain is inevitable. Children are precious. All his work is done, yet so much undone. This mother and son is every mother and son. Death don't choose but war does. Parting is difficult. Silence is deafening. Can someone hear her soft but deep sobs? Why How When Where? Ultimate price for being innocent. Race and religion draw borders. Vengeance mars humanity. Love never kills and Love never dies. So why don't we ever give Love a chance?


Today I dedicate one of my fav songs to this unknown child...I'm sorry this happened to you Samah but know that I'm thinking of you...and I CARE.


Current Music: Sweet Child O' Mine by Guns N Roses

'tis a real shame...
heart goes out to all of em

Margie said...

Oh Keshi!
That picture of the grieving mother is so heartbreaking!
When I see a picture like this I think about all those innocent people that have lost their lives through the war and suicide car bombings.

May dear Samah rest in peace!
And may his memory always be a blessing to his mother.
I feel her grief when I see this picture....it's so very sad!
I know how much you care Keshi!
I do too!

Hugs dear Keshi!

Hi Keshi

Very sad indeed. War is a waste of life.

This post has a tearful twist of irony, and you capped it with Sweet Child O' Mine by Guns N Roses.

Very good choice.


Hugs

Bev

RamaG said...

its always heartbreaking to see any loss of life especially that of a young child.

-Rama.

anits said...

So sad!Hope this world will b peace as soon as possible...

Menchie said...

I am reminded of a scene from Lord of the Rings 2 which struck me as so true. The mad King, after being restored by Gandalf said while visiting the grave of his son, "no parent should ever have to bury their children".

This is just so wrong on many levels.

Vik said...

sad stuff really. someone falls a victim to such lame acts.

feel sorry for the kids over and beyond.

ToOothlEss WOndeR! said...

what a waste.
a world caught between a lot blidfolded by power and money, and another with religion.
and together, they kill the innocent.

Mohan said...

really sad to see the mom in the photo..Human beings will continue to suffer like this until they see other human being with humanity.

Kirthi said...

it is so painful to see things like this happening around us!

and yes, it could be any mother and son! in most cases we realize the pain of a situation only when it knocks our door...

your thought will make a big difference to that mother Keshi, and also of all the people who take a minute to read this blog and express there views as well!

chocolteluva said...

sucks to have anyone die, especially a child.

freedom to me means being able to go out without fear, being able to make my own decisions without being killed or burned, being able to stand up for my self without being persecuted...
being able to be a girl and be educated and most of all....
being able to say that if i could support my self that i could be the bread winner ... i could make money and support my family

Aditi said...

at first sight she seemed to be peacfully sleeping.. its only when i looked again i saw the blood..
wasnt warfare in the old days better.. atleast innocents didnt get butchered so often

Coco said...

war is senseless...
innocent lives are lost!!

blessings, keshi...
continue to always have a big heart, and a compassionate soul.

take care!

Trinnie said...

so many of us are so oblivious of what's happening around us, forget another country, another part of the world...
i wish people stop complaining about not having material pleasures or power...

true, why don't we give love a chance? i admit, i too get scared of love at times, i often wonder what about love makes us so scared?

u have a golden heart kesh...
*hugs*

niki yokota said...

oh this is really heart breaking!!
amen.....

Sweetstickychewy said...

****Race and religion draw borders. Vengeance mars humanity. Love never kills and Love never dies. So why don't we ever give Love a chance?

Great post Keshi. You know it has made me wonder before about these people. They give so much bull about religion but yet fail to do the simplest thing called recognizing and practicing the language of love. Thats when mishaps happen. When the basic steps were not taken noticed of.

How heartbreaking for the family.

*Huggiz Keshi* I love that song alot!! OH Sweet Child of Mine..:D

J said...

While the world talks of global economy and shrinking borders, this is the reality that is being ignored.

Shame that in todays world policies we still can't resolve the basic issues and it's the innocent people who bear the brunt of it all, while the policy makers trot around with their bunch of bodyguards.

awaiting said...

The world is a bitter and uncaring place...at least as a whole...

But people like you give the world a chance...a chance to grow..a chance to open eyes and see....really 'see'.

DJ said...

the only people who know about war are the ones who have suffered on account of it... you can read a hundred books but won't find a single word that can even come close of describing their bereavement...

so sad :(
tc...

Shionge said...

Through you Keshi...you raised awareness every now and then about the senseless wars that is going on, may Samah rest in peace.

Nora said...

"This mother and son is every mother and son."

Perfect!

Ashes said...

i think death is beautiful.it must be thought of as a release.Release into the unknown,but yet a release from the chains of the present.And not to grieve for death because it comes sooner or later.She'll meet her son soon.It's just that he went early.

Mona said...

Hi Keshi,
The pic depicts the real scene of today..
Once i read "Th kite Runner" the novel based of Afganistan and i swear its horrible to read abt the life out there..
We can just pray that peace and love spread around the world..

In between, thanks for your footprints on my page.

God bless you.

anuj said...

lot of unnecessary blood and pain.

~*. D E E P A .* ~ said...

i love the song ...

general_boy said...

Michael Frante's lines, among many others, spring to mind:

we can bomb the world to pieces
but we can't bomb it into peace

Pankaj Gupta said...

hi Keshi,
yes! terrio'sm , war , and Killing shall Never be done on any Grounds..we should go together , to give one Chance to Wonderful Feeling Of LOVE dear..

i am shocked and SOrry for Samah..i am Sorry that People like us have killed her for Nonsense ..I am Sorry for not able to do anything , even if i can do that or i am able todo that,,hmmmm i am not coward but the people around me in other countries should be motivatd..

Jeevan said...

Heart hurts more when knowing an innocent whom were never to what is happening was lost his life. Yesterday’s new about the killing of hundreds is a very bad one.

We can do only praying for peace soon.

Drama Div@ said...

A very sad news indeed. Older men declare war. But the thing is, it's the women and children that die. Any war is a war against women and children..

Silvara said...

I hate looking at pics like that because it's too painful to see. A parent should never have to see their child die.

Nicholas said...

Very smart dedicate Keshi!
Hugs!

Tys on Ice said...

Out of all the sorrow I see around me, a lifeless child , nipped at the bud, is the cruelest of it all...its the only time i truly hate being part of this species....

vishesh said...

lols :)
























wondering why?

















why? simple i can laugh when v give awards for this...no journalist shouldn't be given award fro this...rather if they develop a way to over come this they should be..

Dan said...

It's terrible. And yet it's the yin and yang of life. Can't have love without hate. Can't have life without death.

But that doesn't make it any easier. Hugs Keshi.

Asha said...

OH DEAR!! I don't know how Mr.Bush sleeps at night!! Very well I guess!!
My heart aches too, kesh.

Nicole said...

The reality of the world is completely heartbreaking. All we can do it take it a day at a time and do what we can: Spread the word.

toby said...

Excuse me, Keshi.

Aditi, please read some history.
**wasn't warfare in the old days better.
WTF!!! Ghengis Khan, Roman Empire, Aztec blood sacrifices, the First Emperor of China, African tribal wars, Persian Empire, Alexander...
In the old days, conquered children were enslaved or slaughtered. Millions of them.

As for people who murder children in the name of their god, they are the devil incarnate. As was Saddam, for gassing the Kurdish children of Halabja. As are the people who murder women for "honour"...

Sorry, Keshi, I'm a bit wound up after Aditi's comment. I'll go now.

ARUN said...

its really a bad part of world................... its always there so we should look forword to eliminate its good u discussed it ....but initiation is must........

collateral damage

these are not pretty

Jim said...

why is TASHA upside down?

Jim said...

Collateral damage is a U.S. Military term for unintended or incidental damage during a military operation.

The term, which originated as a euphemism during the Vietnam War, can refer to friendly fire, or the killing of non-combatants and destruction of their property

I've seen this photo many times but it still moves me (as did your words).

susan said...

The world has been warring since the beginning of time. I've never understood why and it simply breaks my heart.

Jenny! said...

It's so sad...that poor family...and there are SO many others!

Alok said...

Keshi, tears are indeed colour blind for they dont have sight, then can just be felt ....

My first impression of real war (beyond books) was the Gulf War, however at that time I understood nothing beyond some of the concerns tht my family used to discuss on the dinner table ....

The first time that I understood wht actually war means was the 9/11 attack ..... And ever since then I remembered my opening statement in one of the essays that I had written in inter-school competition at the time of Gulf War - "War and destruction means the same, look at it from any side of the prism and you will find that it is a coin with two phase of a single soul" ....

THERE IS NEVER A GAIN IN ANY KIND OF WAR, its an illusion and fallacy, but no one perhaps realises it ...... Wars of any kind even if it fought for mankind has the potential impact of loss of lives and brining sorrow .... if there is one winner it is the death .... life has no chance

The irony Keshi is that though human civilization is so called the most evolved civilization, they are the only ones who kill their own species .... God perhaps designed humans in a very inhumane way ....

I cannot but afford my sympathies and heartfelt condolescence to Samah's family

Alok

phoenix said...

thankx a lot kaylee....you are wondering why???

well i am going through an extremely painful,depressing and confusing time of my life which is basically keeping me down and very self absorbed but this post of urs made me realize once again that there are people out there in far worse a condition than me...and that my problems is but a wave in the vast ocean...

thank you for making me feel humble again! :)

EBEZP said...

Keshi, I know of nobody in this weird world in which we all exist that could have done a post as good as that.
Lovely post Keshi. Well done!
That's why you are an inspirational blogger and that's why you deserved the award!

Zhu said...

Nothing is all black or all white in this world... we're all in a grey area...

Sad post but these heartbreaking situations make us more humans.

Harish said...

True and sorrowfull :-(

cathouse teri said...

Well now you made me cry!

Paul said...

Great post. At least here in the US, from the way the media covers it, only US soldiers and their families are real human beings, while Iraqis are just stats.

-----------------------------------

Bev ty sweetie!

**This post has a tearful twist of irony

doesnt it look rididculous...this sad killing-children game?


-----------------------------------

Rama yes cos it doesnt make sense...its totally brutal n senseless.



Keshi.

Keshi said...

Anits I hope so too...as long as even ppl like us keep thinking too 'high' of ourselves, the world will continue to suffer...

-----------------------------------

Menchie thats right..this so WRONG! Very very wrong.


-----------------------------------

hey Vik!

It is unbelievably sad that no one wants to even think abt such events anymore Vik...ppl just chuck em out of their heads saying it's the 'daily' thing...HOLD ON...We cant just go on ignoring it just cos it happens everyday CAN WE?

-----------------------------------

u r absolutely right Toothy!

**a world caught between a lot blidfolded by power and money, and another with religion

thats just it. ppl r so selfish n greedy. its always about THEM.


-----------------------------------

Mohan she's my mother too...and ur's too..


**Human beings will continue to suffer like this until they see other human being with humanity.

Spot on!



Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Kirthi!

**your thought will make a big difference to that mother Keshi

I wonder how/where she is now..I wonder if the scars still remain...I wonder if she'll ever get over the sweet memories of a son she once had..

-----------------------------------

Choco tnxx!

**freedom to me means being able to go out without fear

I like that one!


-----------------------------------

Aditi tnxx! doesnt his face scream innocence! This is so very WRONG.


**wasnt warfare in the old days better.. atleast innocents didnt get butchered so often

Toby replied to this comment below...so check it out Aditi. :)

ty!



Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Coco! so true.

what did this lil boy do to deserve THAT?

-----------------------------------

HUGGGGGGGZ Trinnie!

**i often wonder what about love makes us so scared?

yes...cos most ppl see LOVE as a stupid thing...they think HATRED is cool. Idiots.

-----------------------------------

Niki I say my prayers to ppl I dun even know...cos it hurts to put myself in their shoes...

and ty sweetz!

-----------------------------------

Amy I thought of u when I put that song up...cos I know u love it.


**They give so much bull about religion but yet fail to do the simplest thing called recognizing and practicing the language of love.

Very WELL-SAID!


**Thats when mishaps happen. When the basic steps were not taken noticed of.

yes! And its so sad that ADULTS don't seem to u'stand that and that they kill innocents KIDS in the name of GOD!

FUCKING MORONS! pardon my language, Im totally PISSED!

When will this end????




Keshi.

Keshi said...

u r 100% right Johno!

**While the world talks of global economy and shrinking borders, this is the reality that is being ignored.

exactly what i hv to say! Man has not evolved from his monkey days! he's still killing each other for his own gain. And then wears PANTS while doing all the animalistic acts! SHAMELESS GUTS!

-----------------------------------

Tash HUGGGGGGGGGZ! I missed u.


**a chance to grow..a chance to open eyes and see....really 'see'.

Definitely! If we all want to SEE, we will SEE.


Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey DJ!

**you can read a hundred books but won't find a single word that can even come close of describing their bereavement...

so true! u can read books n books, watch 100 war movies but nothing will bring u closer to the pain n the suffering unless u've been thru it urself.

-----------------------------------

ty Shionge!

**...you raised awareness every now and then about the senseless wars that is going on

I do that every now n then cos it's always at the back of my mind..i cant rest...

HUGGGGGGGGZ!

-----------------------------------

Nora they r arent they..look at em...it reminded me of my mother and myself..that may not have happened to me when I was abt 8yrs old...but imagine it did? how wud it hv been for my mother?

I believe that a r'ship between a mother n a child is the most PRECIOUS r'ship in the world...teh hardest to be severed...the toughest to lose.


-----------------------------------

Ashes hey hows u?

**Release into the unknown,but yet a release from the chains of the present

I agree...but until DEATH happens to the mother too, just imagine what torture it wud be for her to live with her son's memories..


Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey Mona!

**The pic depicts the real scene of today

yes...it is exactly wut happened yday in Iraq too..it's become NORMAL to many...but it doesnt become less painful to witness it.

-----------------------------------

aha Anuj...UNNECESSARY is the word!

hows u?


-----------------------------------

Deepa this song is my ULTIMATE song. And NOV RAIN.

Glad u like it too :)

I sometimes wonder if someone wud make a LOVE bomb someday :)

-----------------------------------

Pankaj ty!


**.I am Sorry for not able to do anything , even if i can do that or i am able todo that

SPOT ON! I feel the same...USELESS...cos I cant do anything abt it apart from blogging abt it..makes me sad :(



Keshi.

Keshi said...

G'day Jeevan!

**Heart hurts more when knowing an innocent whom were never to what is happening was lost his life

so true...this child may hv just been ard that place not knowing what was to come. HOW SAD. Its the ultimate price for being INNOCENT.

-----------------------------------

Diva hey!

** But the thing is, it's the women and children that die

U r absolutely right! Men fight for power and it's the innocents who die!

-----------------------------------

hey Silvara I saw u at BUF...wanna join? :)


**A parent should never have to see their child die.

so true!



Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Nicholas!

-----------------------------------

Tys I feel that too...so sad to hv done nothing to save that child's life!

I feel useless.

-----------------------------------

hey Vish!

**simple i can laugh when v give awards for this...no journalist shouldn't be given award fro this...rather if they develop a way to over come this they should be..

I agree..but a journalist's job is to raise AWARENESS...I guess this PIC did it so very well. We all see the HUMANITY and the PAIN n SUFFERING thru this pic. If not for this pic, how do we capture what ppl go thru in those lands? ppl like me will never know...never feel their pain..unless for pics like this.

So i guess that journalist deserves the award for going to those places, risking their lives and taking pics like this to raise awareness among the rest of the world.

And I guess this journalist did something that i havent done. That way he/she has really done something about it whereas I havent.



Keshi.

Keshi said...

HUGGGGGGGGZ Dan!

**Can't have love without hate. Can't have life without death.

I agree! But we can all try to be lil less animalistic than this, cant we? So sad to see kids dying this way. Its so wrong.


-----------------------------------

Asha ty n HUGGGGGGGGZ!

** I don't know how Mr.Bush sleeps at night

not only him, all those suicide terrorists...I wonder what kind of conscience they have!

G'day Toby!

No worries at all...we r all here to express our true feelings...so Im glad u did. :)


**As for people who murder children in the name of their god, they are the devil incarnate

I agree..it's just the opp of spirituality n faith! SO BLOODY WRONG.



Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Arun!

**................... its always there so we should look forword to eliminate its good u discussed it ....but initiation is must........

HOW do we go abt it? I mean HOW do we change ppl's ego, greed and selfisheness?


-----------------------------------

Jim this is actually a victim of suicide bombers...the so-called Jihad warriors. So not collateral damage...


I dun believe in collateral damage.

**Collateral damage is a U.S. Military term for unintended or incidental damage during a military operation.

tell me one thing thats not INTENDED in war?


-----------------------------------

Tracy WC n ty!

yes its a haunting pic of PAIN n SUFFERING for being at the wrong place at the wrong time.


-----------------------------------

ty Susan!


**The world has been warring since the beginning of time

I wonder why too...cos I cant u'stand WAR. Cos it brings no solutions.



Keshi.

Keshi said...

Jen yes there r so many out there! SO MANY.

-----------------------------------

ty so much Alok!


**9/11

was the real face of EVIL. And they called it service to GOD?


**if there is one winner it is the death .... life has no chance

so true. there r no winners in WAR.

Samah cud hv been any one of us...his childhood and life was stolen just like that - what a waste of a young life cos of few greedy ADULTS' mistakes!


-----------------------------------

Phoenix I hope u feel better soon. HUGGGGGGGGGGZ!

**but this post of urs made me realize once again that there are people out there in far worse a condition than me

I agree...sometimes I start brooding abt my pathetic life and then I think to myself 'WTH am I complaining abt'.

TC hun! We have today and our lives are beautiful. Samah didnt get that chance...we got it. So enjoy!

SaffronSaris said...

Wow you've got a heirloom.

I know, the picture is so very heartbreaking :(
Some people are just so swept up in their belief that they just cannot see anymore.

But I think of the many more who manage to still see and I believe there is still hope.

Keshi said...

Kaylz...

Aidan said...

Amazing image... However we are inundated with these images almost to a point of desensitisation.

Imagine seeing that image for the first time and how it would effect you.

You have done a good job of capturing the intangiable love, its sounds so easy get on with it and love one annother. WHy in practice is it so hard. 20,000 common ancestry is hard to erase, petty squables, and little things are hard to forget...

By the way great taste in sound track...

Aidan

Keshi said...

:) Good on y Kaylz for going thru the toughest time of ur life...and most of all for sporting a smile all thru it.

U R AWESOME!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

Aidan ty and hey HAPPY BIRTHDAY again! Woohoo Im dancing for ya :)

Blessed said...

That pics just breaks my heart.
I can't imagine her pain.


Quote from Mother Teresa:
"Let us not use bombs and guns to
overcome the world. Let us use love and compassion. Peace begins with a smile. Smile five times a day at someone you don't really want to smile at all. Do it for peace. Let us radiate the peace of God and so light His light and extinguish in the world and and in the hearts of all men all hatred and love for power. Smile at one another. It is not always easy.

God loves the world through you and me. Are we that love and that compassion? Christ came to be his Father's compassion. God is loving the world through you and and through me and through all those who are His love and compassion in the world."

Many blessings Miss Keshi!

Keshi said...

aww ty Blessed!

**. Smile five times a day at someone you don't really want to smile at all. Do it for peace

love that! alot of ppl dun wanna do it..just cos they dun wanna be bothered...its so sad.


HUGGGGGGGGGZ!
Keshi.

fergal said...

in my humble opinion it is just so absolutely fuc#ed up in the extreme that iraqis are killing iraqis; i just can not in any way comprehend this. and the fact that beautiful iraqi kids are thus getting killed every day, is even more fuc#ed and totally incomprehensible and destructive. i only need to see or read about images and stories such as this, to realise how very lucky i am to be here and not there. so thanx keshi for reminding me of that much.

Keshi said...

Fergal yes its a totally fucked up system. Mebbe all these warriors should go to Fucking in Austria.

Keshi.

George said...

The innocent are the ones that pay in any war. I have read in several sources that the "coallition forces" death toll in Iraq is around 4,000 soldiers. The Iraqi citizen death toll is well over 70,000 if not an awful lot more. The numbers keep changing on a daily basis but you can surely see the obvious ... almost 20 innocent victims for every soldier death.

Yep ... they certainly are setting the Iraqi citizens free ... if there are any left alive

Keshi said...

George I agree....

**almost 20 innocent victims for every soldier death.

thats just AWFUL! are certain lives les imp than some others'?

Keshi.

Steph said...

That picture is just gutwrenching. So senseless, such a waste of a beautiful life full of potential.

So very sad.

Jim said...

collateral damage occurs on both sides

the suicide bomber who pays with his life is collateral damage too

, in a war u r safer
if u r in the military

Jim said...

, guerilla war fare,


the US Army did not have the guts to take on the Japanese soldiers who refused to surrender during WW II

so the Dirty bomb was used on the civilian population in Hiroshima and Nagasaki

the freedom fighters in Palestine and Iraq dont have hi-tech weaponry like the US

so they engage in Hara Kiri like the japanese did in WW II

Hara Kiri - suicide bombers
is the same thing

its guerilla war fare

Keshi said...

Steph thats right...it's gutwrenching!

ty!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

Jim hey!

**the suicide bomber who pays with his life is collateral damage too

pays? isnt it what he WANTED to do? There's nothing UNINTENTIONAL here Jim!

it was one of the saddest events in HUMAN history.

, sobbing over such sob stories is a waste of tears
,

lets try to focus on root causes of war

and prevent wars in future
League of Nations was formed after WWI

but we had WWII


UNO will not prevent WW III
as long as we have BUSH (idiots in power)who is planning to attack IRAN now

No tear is a waste!

shooting star said...

only a mother can understand another mtother's sorrow at this loss..... no religion asks for death of inncoent lives and no god is so unkind to ask for scuh a sacrifice...it's us humans who do such cruel acts gleefully and then put labels of faith and god on them to justify ourselves...

Jim said...

it is pics such as these that fuel HATE for the US and other christian nations


the next world war will be fot on religious lines

Keshi, the anquish of a mother losing her child is unspeakable. There are no words for it. So much pain. I'm lost for any explaination.

Children are not precious to everyone. The suicide bomber that did this does not have a shred of humanity in him. All the terrorists have is hate. That is why it is easy to distinguish the good guys from the bad guys in this War. The good guys look at this scene, and there is a tear in their eyes ... the bad guys (terrorists) look at this scene as a means to an end.
