I saw this extremely poignant photograph by Samuel Aranda, a NYT photographer on the NYT Lens page . This picture won the 2012 World Press Photo of the Year. It triggered an instant recollection of Michaelangelo’s Pieta in the Vatican.

Ultimately the breadth of human emotion is the same and our common and shared griefs transcend any concocted divisions.
