Bone chilling

This is one of the scariest pictures I’ve ever seen.

  1. Scary indeed.
    There are a few horrible images throughout the years stuck in my mind, and I'm afraid we haven't seen the last one yet.

    Nice to have you back Lou!


  2. Welcome back, Lou! We've missed you.

    And yes - very disturbing.

  3. Yes, welcome back, Lou!

    I don't know what's more disturbing, the gun, or the looks on their faces.

  4. Hey Lou. Glad you're back. Sorry that what you have to bring to us is so scary. Unfortunately, these days, scary is all we can get.
    Hope you're well.

  5. Good to look at the latest posts of my favorites and see Lou up there :)

    This is indeed a scary and sad photo. It almost leaves me speechless.

  6. Young people always make the best killers-for-ideals, whether it be regular soldiers or terrorists. Older people tend to be rather more jaundiced, and prefer to let others do the dying, while they reap the benefits.

    The scif-fi writer Harry Harrison put it very well in one of his tongue-in-cheek anti-war novels; I can’t remember the exact words, but they went something like: ‘How do you stop wars? Raise the lowest age for military service to 40, that’s how.’

  7. it's actually quite sad. Those young people never had/have a chance to really enjoy life in a decent way.....

  8. what about the flowers?

    guns are cheap, you can buy them.
    Too bad, Flowers have to grow.

    Oh I'm sorry, yeah it's the gun, maybe that is why he is the late, what ever.

    I miss the flowers.

  9. Hey Lou!

    These two look so young...and so incredibly naive...what do they really know about life? They look all full of bravado...and I've no doubt that photo was done purely for it's shock value with the more civilized countries...don't you think?

    Glad to see you back!

  10. So happy to see you Lou!

    That one is chilling. What a waste of potential for the future.

  11. How happy I was to spot your blog in my list today. I know I am a little bit late. You have been missed Lou.
    That is such a sad, sad photo. It makes me feel overwhelmed.

  12. Great to hear from y'all, I actually feel like I've been missed by our little community here. Thanks for the welcome back peeps.
