      Incredible detail, but I really don't know where to begin to respond to this. Except sadness and anger.

      This makes me so sad to see such violence and against a young girl?? It's so hard to comprehend the hate and aggression. It makes me thankful for what I have and for what I don't have to witness on a daily basis.

      Distressing and totally brutal. Human compassion is in the back seat these days.

      Impressive pictures. Why all this intolerance in the world? After all, aren't we all human beings, daughters and sons, fathers and mothers. Stupidity is the ruler.
