I was cleaning up my browser bookmarks this morning and I found one link that's more than two years old already. It links to MSNBC.com's 2006 year-end photo essay, and it includes the photo above.

I remember seeing this picture for the first time and it did make me a little tearful. A little. Haha. Looking at it now, more than 2 years later...it's still heart wrenching. The Getty Images photo has this caption:

An elderly man and wife weep as they work to build a chair neir their flooded
village of Rast , Romania , on Thursday, April 20. Thousands were evacuated
along the Danube River in western Romania , and thousands more were under threat
as the river hit near-record levels.

I didn't delete the bookmark.
