PhotoHunt 130 - Sad


This is the bereaved family of a fallen soldier.

This was taken two days before the All Saints Day last year at the Libingan ng mga Bayani (Heroes Cemetery). The family was there to upkeep his grave. I couldn't imagine how very SAD this young family felt when their loved one departed. Look at how SAD the older girl was. She could have missed his loving father so much that she hugged the cross at the next grave and thought of him.

I captured this moment as I felt very SAD too seeing how very young the kids when they lost their father.

I was there too upkeeping my father's grave.

Oh! It's 28 days to All Saints Day.
