    Aisha Mohamed Masaud, 57, was married on November 18th, 1982. ‘I was 22 years old and my husband was 23. He was in medical school when we were married. He was a part of an Islamic organization that wanted to take down Gaddafi at Matiga base. I sensed that he was involved in something, but he never told me. He came home complaining every day, that everything was getting worse under Gaddafi since he came to power. He was arrested on August 5th, 1990. I was pregnant with our fourth daughter. Our son was six and our two daughters were seven and two. It happened in the morning while he was getting ready for work. Military men came to our apartment, they put him in a car, then someone got in his car and drove it away with them. He was gone for eighteen days. One day, they brought him back to our apartment.

Among the survivors, those who are most isolated are the women who have borne children as a result of being raped. Their families have rejected both them and their children, compounding their already unimaginable emotional distress. An estimated 20,000 children were conceived during the genocide in Rwanda, and many of their mothers contracted HIV during the same encounters that left them pregnant.

    "There is something about Americans glancing up," says Benjamin Lowy, who photographed attendees of the 57th Presidential Inauguration for NBC News on Monday. The upward glance seems to embody a hopeful gaze into the future, and it inspired similar portraits by Mr. Lowy during the Republican and Democratic National Conventions last year. “It doesn’t matter if we’re black, white, yellow, or brown,” he says. “We look the same when we look up.”
