Two years ago, I wrote on this very blog:

Now every time I encounter any such cases, my heart literally aches because I came to realise that they are putting the rawness of their tragedies out there to the rest of the world as they have no other choices for survival.

Nothing has changed since. Worse yet, what we are witnessing is not only raw but also repeats itself incessantly. This must be the definition of hell.
