Golczynski, 8, receives the flag that covered the coffin of his father during a graveside service in 2007. A simple photography of a child’s grief communicates more powerfully, than any gory, blood stained image ever could, the utter futility and stupidity of war. Singer Ed Sheeran’s cover version of Bob Dylan’s classic anti-war song sums up my feelings about the military-industrial complex perfectly.
