Hopeless- that's the first word that came to mind when I met him. I've seen many people who suffered from all types of illness and go through such excruciating pain, but none exhibited the same look of hopelessness that I saw in that man's face. It was the look of a man who has accepted that his life has come to an end. It's the expression of a man whose spirit has been broken. It's the look that would later haunt my dreams.
