However painful it may be for us delicate souls, and however intractable the Congo’s ills may appear, and however drained of compassion we may feel in the face of Darfur and other hells, we must never turn away our gaze. Indeed, we have a moral duty to look, which is what these images are telling us. To observe pain only through the prisms of the boardroom and the computer screen is to sever the vital artery between compassion and action. The continuing human tragedy of Congo is not a sta...

Anencephaly c.1890’s.The rostral end of the neural tube fails to close resulting in the absence of a major portion of the brain,skull+scalp.Strictly speaking,the translation of the Greek term to English is "no brain".Children w/ this disorder are born w/o a forebrain,the largest part of the brain consisting mainly of the cerebral hemispheres,including the neocortex which is responsible for higher-level cognition.The remaining brain tissue is often exposed.Most babies w/this disorder dont survive

LIFE.com recalls World War II in the Pacific through one of the most influential photographs ever taken in any war: the image of three dead Americans half-buried in the sand at a place called Buna Beach. (George Strock—Time & Life Pictures/Getty Images )
The first image published of dead American soldiers since Pearl Harbour during WWII. LIFE magazine felt compelled to ask in an adjacent full-page editorial, “Why print this picture, anyway, of three American boys dead upon an alien shore?” Among the reasons: “Words are never enough …
Three American soldiers lie half-buried in the sand at Buna Beach on New Guinea. This photo was taken in February 1943, but not published until September, when it became the first image of dead American troops to appear in LIFE Magazine during World War II. George Strock's photo was finally OK'd by government censors, in part because FDR feared the public was growing complacent about the war's horrific toll
Smithsonian Magazine’s February 2007 issue has a fascinating article called Faces of War which discusses methods of dealing with the devastating facial disfigurements suffered by soldiers who fought in World War I, and the medical personnel and artists who first pursued ‘modern’ facial prosthetic techniques.

WWI facial prosthesis. These were used in the Civil War too. Not many examples of them because most were buried with their users.
WWI facial prosthesis - because of trench warfare, so many wounds were to the head and face. Before plastic surgery was common, doctors and artists worked together to give returning young soldiers a way to fit back into society.

Buffalo Jump- American Indians used to chase buffalo over a cliff. The cliff was called a buffalo jump. The most famous of Wyoming’s buffalo jumps is the Vore Buffalo Jump located near Beulah. From the layers of bones, scientists have estimated that some 20,000 bison were killed at the site and that it was in use as late as 1800 AD.
Totally disproves the myth of buffalo wings.
David David Wojnarowicz Untitled (Buffalo), 1988
A 'buffalo jump' .. buffalo were herded ('running of the buffalo') by native Americans and native Canadians, to the nearest cliff and forced over. Buffalo/Bison were a major source of meat as well as for clothing. No part of the animal was wasted.

Did you know that in vintage tintype photographs of infants mothers were often present in the photo but hidden by a veil? Subjects needed to remain still due to the longer exposure times required back then, so mothers were often asked to hold their children tightly while the portraits were being exposed.
