Sometimes an event of tremendous sincere human communication transcends the moment in which it whirls as a dust devil to become a tornado in the collective minds across the globe. Whether it be a dying journalist using his last ounce of lifeblood to prop his camera into the air, a young man lying determinedly still in the path of an equally determined tank, or Mr. Wong singing Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats” at the Carrie-Oke Contest in Kansas.

This man has been through too much. Too much.
