A picture from Baltimore

I saw this picture of the National Guardsman and the little girl at the Baltimore Sun.


The picture was taken by Annapolis writer and activist Amanda Moore. The article stated that many people found the picture heartwarming. I thought it was heartwarming. But I also thought “is that gun he’s holding loaded?” And maybe he should point it in a different direction.

A picture posted Friday to the popular Reddit website showing a young girl and a National Guardsman on the streets of Baltimore has drawn more than 2.5 million views so far.

The image was taken by Amanda Moore, 26, an Annapolis-based activist and writer, who said she spent the past week in the city trying to assist in efforts against police brutality.
