This is the thing worth fighting for

Amidst all the barbarisms exposed by the collapse of the Rana garment factory in Savar, Bangladesh, despite the immense grief of family members who haven’t recovered their beloved & survivors suffering amputations, there is this tender moment  where a man caresses & comforts his wife at the rehab hospital where she is recovering from an amputated leg. This is not to reduce what is tragic & criminal to the maudlin but to stop for a moment & honor what it is about human exploitation that is so odious & what it is about human life that is so glorious.
