I give LIFE magazine credit for printing the picture of the wounded Joe Base Jr., age 12. We were the same age, the picture touched me deeply and made me question everything going on in my country.

Despite the ads.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
