The picture I am writing about is "Alcoholic Father and Son". The boy is trying his best to help his father to his feet, but the father is to drunk to stand so he stays on the ground outside with his legs out without trying to stand. This picture was taken to symbolize the struggles a kid may have to go through with his father if they are a drunk, and I believe that is important message because many kids go through lives like this.
