The one of the guy in tears in Paris has always choked me up. I can't imagine what they must have been feeling.

Incredibly moving photographs! The flag being placed in the hands of that little boy at his father's funeral is a hard one to take dry eyed!

I'm surprised that I had not seen some of those before. Yes, very moving!

ABC News covered the story at the time...."Heather Golczynski and her 8-year-old son Christian hold tightly to the memory of Marine Staff Sgt. Marc Golczynski.

On March 27, just a few weeks before Marc Golczynski was to return home from his second tour in Iraq -- one he volunteered for -- he was shot on patrol and killed by enemy fire in al-Aanbar province.

During a moment at the burial, Christian stepped forward to receive the flag for his father. The expression of grief on his young face was captured in a photo and became a powerful symbol for soldiers, their families and anyone who sees it.

When asked about his dad by ABC News' Chris Cuomo, Christian said, "He was a hero. He helped our country."

I am one heartless bastard as none of those pics did anything to me. The only one I found to be somewhat moving was the one with the dog next to his owners burial.

Jesus I have f'cking issues, seriously.

Just wait until the day after election day, we might all look like that.

LMAO Your response to a 'pic' doesn't qualify you brother, not in any sense of the word. You are a 'heartless bastard,' without any doubt! LMAO Growing up in New York does that ****! :) You're a tough one BH! :) But I would imagine that there were at least 3 that brought a tear to the eye! :)

What do they say? A picture is worth a thousand words! It's easy to be so obsessed with daily life, what pressures, what pushes, what demands, that we close ourselves off to what goes on all around us! Who doesn't have more 'irons on the fire' than they can deal with? What is that old saying? "There but by the grace of God, go I." I will say this, if we are so wound up with our own lives that the suffering, pain, and loss of another doesn't effect us, then we've become much, much less than human! I can't do anything about it, but I can feel it, and the 'feel' should do something to me.
