Every year thousands of religious devotees flock the city of Manila in the Philippines to join the celebration of the feast of the Black Nazarene. This year, 2020, the local government decided to put on guard policemen along the procession of the statue to gain security and avoid unnecessary incidents. This young lady devotee of the annual procession with her child seems lost and sad that they cannot come close to the statue to profess her faith due the number of policeman on guard.
