Too Young to Wed

A veil of gauze protects a patient named Zahara from flies in a burn ward in Herat, Afghanistan. Afghan women who set themselves on fire may do so to escape abuse at home, believing they will die instantly. Yet many linger on with terrible injuries.
“This dreamlike photo belies tragedy. Under the soft gauze is the hard reality of a burn ward in Afghanistan; child brides sometimes set themselves on fire to escape arranged marriages. Stephanie Sinclair’s poignant photograph speaks to her commitment to give a voice to those young women.”

il albanico - keep calling
I cant find my sleep no when the rain is falling
And I can hear the soothing wind it calls enthralling
And I can feel no fear no when the night is falling
And I can hear the hidden sounds of creatures sighing…
Keep calling, keep calling again, keep calling…
This dude is amazing.
