A death in Kramatorsk | The Wider Image | Reuters

Have a look at the picture in the link below [now above] -- a woman lying dead on the ground while residents just walk on by. Can you imagine that in your home town?
Whenever my neighbors here in peaceful Hong Kong complain about some trivial thing, a late bus, an untrimmed lawn, I say "think of Syria... think of Ukraine ".
Quote from the article:
"We got to the site of the shelling in less than an hour after the explosion. The first thing we saw was a dead woman's body lying on the ground, she had been like that for at least half an hour. By shooting this picture I wanted to convey the banality of the horror happening here." End quote.
Vs the banality of our own petty concerns.
