"We Feel Invisible"

Howard Bloom says, "When we are sick, we disappear. we feel invisible. we feel disposable. like a burden. to be told we are human, that we count, that we matter, that we contribute, that we are real and important saves our fucking lives, and a picture does that more than words. words melt with the air they are spoken on. they disappear into our hard drive. pictures validate us moment after moment, day after day."
