Speechless

In the words of a comment at Posthegemony signed "Serena":

occasionally you come across an image that causes the seizure of a feeling that passes before you can describe it, for you have already stared at the image for too long, but is usually in reaction to a previously unimagined cruelty, something that makes an unexpected and affecting connection to someone else's tragedy. this is one such image.

I have nothing to add. The image in question is here.

I think that's a nearly complete misreading of the photograph.

Though, since it's really a recounting of a reaction, there's nothing to say, is there?
