This photo is just heartbreaking. The situation in Haiti is so dire that people are really left with no choice but to get the bodies out of the main city as quickly as possible — and the only way to do that is to put the bodiesĀ into a dump truck and to dump them into large pits on the countryside.

There will be no identification process, no notification of remaining family members, and no official record. And to put things into perspective, this is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of the amount of bodies that the Haitian government expects to recover from the debris. The impact of images like this is beyond words right now.
