    Thanks for sharing this video with us Eric. Amazing images too many excellent ones to choose from, most are very powerful, some disturbing like the one of the tearful boy with the gun to his head.

    You really need to go to Vimeo.com and watch this in fullscreen, with HD on and scaling off. Absolutely fantastic imagery.
