While the emotional repercussions of war aren’t easy to measure, the
before, during, and after pictures of soldiers who have seen combat tell
a pretty unsettling story. There’s something mesmerizing about these
photographs, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. Photographer Lalage
Snow has captured something really interesting.
On Tuesday, Lucca, a 12-year-old German shepherd, received the prestigious Dickin Medal, the highest military decoration awarded for valor in the UK. She’s the first American K9 to receive it. While serving, she led over 400 missions in Iraq and Afghanistan, and found over 40 explosives. She lost her leg when an IED detonated as she was searching for weapons. Thank you for your sacrifice, Lucca.
In memory of children in war zones. I pray that one day they will wake up to the sound of singing birds, music and to the sound of other children playing outside instead of bombs, panic and fear. 🙏🏼💞 🕊
Eid mubarak to y'all! Enjoy this blessed day in good company and with lots of foood, and remember the oppressed-one in your duas wherever they are and pray for a better world. ❤️🙌🏼😇🎉
