A still frame captured from video of a suicide bomber in Sri Lanka blowing himself up.  The bomber was part of the Tamil Tigers, a terrorist organization which waged a war against the government for 26 years.

This picture, showing the split second after the bomb exploded, shows the innocent bystanders before they were injured.

14 people died and 35 more were wounded in this attack.

Matara, Sri Lanka – March 10, 2009.

Yes, this is an extremely disturbing photo. It is also a photo that shows the fragility of life and how we must take advantage of every single moment we have. You never know when someone may take it away from you.
