Mawlamyine, Myanmar - February 13, 2017: 14-year old Khin Khin Tun poses to show deep scars on her back at Mawlamyine, some 300 kms southeast of Yangon. Khin Khin Tun's back is a patchwork of burns, searing memories she says from when her former employer poured two flasks of boiling water over her flesh -- one for each orange she was accused of stealing.

“It has been said, ‘time heals all wounds.’ I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.”
Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy

“The human race tends to remember the abuses to which it has been subjected rather than the endearments. What’s left of kisses? Wounds, however, leave scars.”
Bertolt Brecht
