13 Photos that Changed the World

While browsing the internet, I came across an interesting post from an author, Ransom Riggs, of one of my favorite books (Miss Peregrine's School for Peculiar Children). He is not only a writer but also does a lot with photography. He compiled 13 photos that "changed the world." I think its fascinating to look at this list and just think about these pictures and the circumstances surrounding them. Whether you agree with the list or not, you can't argue that these pictures are very significant and bring about a lot of emotion. 
Application for Education: This list could be a great tool to get your students thinking and writing. Explain the circumstances of what this list is, and then show them a picture from the list. They can write about what they see, what it is, how they feel, etc, then discuss. Very thought provoking.
