— I debated for quite some time on whether to include this picture while editing for our slideshow covering Ashoura.(http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/16892815/) Photographically this picture captured an emotional moment but I was also shocked at seeing this picture because I had to ask myself how a parent could do this to their child. At the same time I felt I needed to set aside my personal opinions and not pass judgment out of respect for another cultures customs. So after stepping back I decided to keep this photo in my edit because I felt that it helped to tell the visual story of Ashoura.
