Day 14 - Tea

Thought of the day:  I ran into a set of powerful images submitted by Catherine Karnow for One Life Photo Competition.  She took those photos this July in Vietnam to document the lives of two families whose children were suffering from genetic defects caused by Agent Orange, a toxin used during the Vietnam War.  Just like Catherine, I had no idea that these genetic defects could be passed down the generations and affect babies who are born today.  These images are deeply disturbing.  Such is the power of photography - a few images can tell a human story more powerfully than any number of words.
