This photo speaks to me in many ways because I have had a passion for soccer ever since I was a small child and it has become more than a lifestyle to me. It brings people together when playing for fun and through many cultures it has bonded their communities and the world. The world cup that happens every 4 years as it will this year in June 2014, the world will come together as a whole and participate in this time of sport and passion.

The United Nations estimated Wednesday that more than 60,000 people have been killed in Syria's 21-month-old uprising against authoritarian rule, a toll one-third higher than what anti-regime activists had counted. The U.N. human rights chief called the toll "truly shocking." (AP Photo/Andoni Lubacki)
