12. Vietnam War
Called one of the 20th century’s most iconic and haunting images, this photo shows children hiding in a sewer during the Vietnam War. It’s an image that depicts the sad reality of those truly impacted by the war. Whenever children are involved, images such as these can be truly difficult to view.
This image memorializes the pain and terror of so many during that time, and for many of the survivors of Vietnam who are still alive today. Even for those of us that had no connection to it, this image is enough to scare anyone of war. It should also be a reminder of who actually suffers during wartime.
