-Inner Strength- (BW Shots of a Male Human Adult + Face)

Challenge has finished
Last year I held a challenge called Inner Beauty which challenged entrants to depict this subjective phrase. This time around, take a shot of a scene with a human adult male as the main subject. The main subject must be visibly at least 1/4 of the height or width of the photo area. It would be preferable (but not compulsory) for entrants to provide some info on your entry.

On one of the missions we ended up having to wait for a while while another component of the maneuver force conducted their meetings with the town elders. For some reason, we seemed to have found ourselves parked right outside a humble building. Turns out, my interpreter attended this school until his 6th grade. It was humbling to see the difference between what we as Americans consider suitable for an academic building, and what a town with no electricity did. It was a one story building with 10ish rooms and a teacher's lounge. Despite the classrooms being 20x30ft at the largest (I remember one being about 10x15ft with over 20 desks crammed inside), the thing that surprised me the most was when I was told over 400 students regularly attend there.
