Picture > 1000 Words

I stumbled across these pictures online the other day, and just felt the need to share them. I'm not going to include any commentary, I don't think the pictures need it.

Here is a lone Jewish woman resisting Israeli security forces in the West Bank. It won the Pulitzer Prize for Oded Balilty.

This year's Pulitzer runner-up was taken by Mahmud Hams of Agence France-Presse. It shows an Israeli rocket about to land on Palestinian villagers in a refugee camp in the Gaza Strip.

A man walks on a street strewn with bullet casings in Monrovia (the capital of Liberia). Carolyn Cole won the Pulitzer prize in 2004 with a set of pictures including this one.

If you want to see some more Pulitzer pictures, go here. But be warned. Some of them will break your heart, and I'm not kidding.
