Sometimes a picture can indeed be worth more than a thousand words. And when that picture is also taken in a significant historical time, it can tell us a story about those days much better than any witness could. The eyes of a soldier in Vietnam and the message written above, on his helmet, prisoners from the Alcatraz in the 60’s or the actual Titanic, are all fascinating things to see with your own eyes and mean much more than just words.
