Heart Touching Photos of Wordless Wednesday

I've been doing research for my upcoming novel and I ran across some heart wrenching photos that truly helped me construct my thoughts into meaningful words. As a writer, I need that emotional pull and tug on my heart sometimes. One of my characters is from Rwanda. Here's what inspired me.

Taken by James Natcheway. This Hutu man was against the genocide and placed in a concentration camp during the Rwandan genocide in 1994. He was starved, and attacked with machetes. He was later freed and cared for by the Red Cross.
This Pulitzer Prize winning photos shows a heroic woman fighting against the militia all by herself on the West Bank settlement outpost of Amona, east of the Palestinian town of Ramallah. Her name is Nili. And she felt driven by a greater force, she later described as God giving her the courage to stand up and fight.
Photo was taken by Oded Balilty.

Have a great week and Happy Wordless Wednesday!
