words barely do justice

by Andrea O'Connell

I was reading Viktor Frankl today and serendipitously came across this dramatic and searing image by Journey Photographic, (one of my favorite photo blogs).  I am pleased to have permission to share this image with you.

I would also like to share this from Viktor Frankl:

We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms — to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way. –Viktor Frankl, author, neurologist and psychiatrist, Holocaust Survivor (1905-1997)

    Hey there! Well, thank you again for allowing me to use the image! It surely does make an impact… it’s haunting in its simplicity – though I know it’s far from simple. I hope to one day pay my respects to this memorial in person. Until then, your image serves well.
