I lost my faith in humanity today.... My son Cody, is a Corpsman in the US Navy, who while attending the Marine Corps Ball in Las Vegas, had his car broken into and all of his camera gear stolen.  Along with his med kits that have been with him through 2 tours in Afghanistan and other valueable, irreplaceable items.  He is getting ready to move to his next duty station and it would take years, if ever, before he could afford to replace what was stolen!  My heart is so very very broken for him right now... Photography has been a way for Cody to show us the world through his eyes, the eyes of a soldier. Who has experienced first hand the devestation of war, loss of life and then goes and shows us the soul and spirit of a child in Afghanistan  the beauty of a dessert an unforgettable moment in time and the awesome glory of nature.He has given families unforgettable pictures of soldiers on deployment some of them being their last pictures taken.  His work can be seen at: https://facebook.com/BlackShieldImagesAndPhotography and at http://BlackShieldPhotography.zenfolio.com Photos taken by Cody are currently included in an exhibit at the American Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan.  He has shared his work and talent with so many of us.  How dare a thief take this away from a soldier who has literally put his life on the line for his fellow soldiers and country.  To take away the one thing that allows him to heal, that reminds us and him that there is so very much beauty in this world.  Please help Cody replace what has been taken, so that he may continue to show us, through the eyes of a Soldier, this beautiful, amazing world.  And restore my Faith in Humanity!   Thank you and God Bless.
