German photographer Anja Neidringhaus was killed in an attack in Afghanistan, just before the Presidential elections to be held tomorrow.
Her work is incredible. 
Journalists and Photojournalist who cover conflict areas and unsafe zones, risk their lives to share their information with the world.
Recent piece on her work: http://www.theatlantic.com/infocus/2013/11/afghanistan-seen-through-the-lens-of-anja-niedringhaus/100621/
And they know firsthand of the vulnerability, non-glamour, chaos and horrors of military invasion and war.
Her pictures have often capture humanity and children in these places. 
In places where the Western world is advised that there is danger, terror and no joy.
She brought forth the joy. She captured a lot of it. 
These pictures are priceless.
May she rest in peace.
