Take a moment to see photographer Darcy Padilla’s Julie Project. A profoundly sad pictorial documentation of the life of a someone who never escaped the odds stacked against her. Ms Padilla states that she hopes that people will have a hard time forgetting Julie after seeing her work.
I never really think of God as having thoughts. But if He does, the Julie’s of the world must make Him sad and angry. I worry that the quicker I can forget about a Julie, the farther I move away from God.
Lyrics from the Rolling Stones 1973 song — DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO (HEARTBREAKER) — written by M. Jagger and K. Richards:
A ten year old girl on a street corner
Sticking needles in her arm
She died in the dirt of an alleyway
Her mother said she had no chance, no chance!
Heart breaker, heart breaker
She stuck the pins right in her heart
Heart breaker, a pain maker
Stole the love right out of you heart
Oh yeah (doo, doo doo doo doo)
Oh yeah (doo doo doo, doo doo)
I wanna tear that word apart
