The Day After

The Day After, originally uploaded by Springflowerchild.

Another digital inspired by some video footage of the Haiti quake aftermath. So many people, including children, are now amputees because they were unable to get proper medical care for fractures and broken bones.
All of the amputee children I saw in this story had this distant look in their eyes. Some of them had also lost their families. The mind has a way of protecting itself by making a psychological separation.I've heard stories about victims of abuse picturing their bodies floating above them. Even in the midst of unimaginable tragedy, We still try to survive and even have hope..
