This photo was taken in Germany, but in a way it perfectly encapsulates what we as a country are going through right now.

A very similar image, Liberty Leading the People, hangs at the Louvre reminding visitors and French people of the fight for freedom and democracy. In a sad turn, the tricolor flag waves here as a reminder of the deprivation of rights that migrants and refugees are facing in their way into Europe.

It's sometimes hard to distinguish a protest from a carnival. In Brazil, demonstrations broke out on Tuesday over gender violence. It's a serious issue plaguing a dysfunctional country, but at least one boy found a way to entertain himself.

Relief, elation, exhaustion – this frame evokes these feelings and so many more. These freshly reunited women are part of the crush of displaced Iraqis who are joining loved ones at a refugee camp near the Kurdish checkpoint of Aksi Kalak. According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, some 9000 people have been internally displaced due to military operations currently underway to retake Mosul from Islamic State fighters. UN officials fear the fighting will spark the largest humanitarian crisis of this year.
