Best Pictures Of 2016

I just checked out what I wrote in 2015 and it turns out nothing has changed. Absolutely nothing. Syria is still one big mess. Innocent refugees still want to flee countless frightening war zones. The Brexit has isolated and divided Britain a little more. Trump has done the same in the US. France was once again hit with terrorist attacks. And falling oil prices have given companies and consumers the excuse not to care about the environment as much.
I would be really good if we could let 2016 be and concentrate on making 2017 a year to never forget for the right reasons.

Refugees and migrants wade across a river near the Greek-Macedonian border, west of the the village of Idomeni, Greece, March 14, 2016. Reuters Photographer Stoyan Nenov: "About 200 migrants walked towards a Greek village near the border with Macedonia. Some planned to cross but volunteers tried to stop them as three Syrians had drowned in the river that morning. Greek riot police tried to stop the migrants on the road. But it was almost impossible for the police to hold them back. After a couple of kilometres, the group had grown to at least 2,000 people. We reached the Suha Reka River. Migrants formed a human chain and at least a hundred reached the other side. A kilometre later they reached a wire fence built by the Macedonians on the border. The group walked along the fence, which soon ended, and followed a forest path. I soon realised we were probably already in Macedonia and I decided to go no further. Macedonian soldiers arrived and circled the migrants I was following. I went further down the road, where the army and police had already stopped the first migrants. A police officer told other members of the media and me we had crossed illegally and we were to be detained. Sitting in a police station, I had time to think. Parents carrying their children, elderly people and women helped by migrants and volunteers. I will never forget that image." © Stoyan Nenov/REUTERS

Professional women's wrestling in Japan means body slams, sweat, and garish costumes. But Japanese rules on hierarchy also come into play, with a culture of deference to veteran fighters. The brutal reality of the ring is masked by a strong fantasy element that feeds its popularity with fans, most of them men. © Thomas Peter/REUTERS

Barrier tape is tied around 15-month-old Shivani's ankle to prevent her from running away, while her mother Sarta Kalara works at a construction site nearby, in Ahmedabad, India, April 19, 2016. Kalara says she has no option but to tether her daughter Shivani to a stone despite her crying, while she and her husband work for 250 rupees ($3.8) each a shift digging holes for electricity cables in the city of Ahmedabad. There are about 40 million construction workers in India, at least one in five of them women, and the majority poor migrants who shift from site to site, building infrastructure for India's booming cities. Across the country it is not uncommon to see young children rolling in the sand and mud as their parents carry bricks or dig for new roads or luxury houses. © Amit Dave/REUTERS
