  1. Wow! I can't believe that I have never seen that picture. Really makes you think. I can't imagine being that photographer…it is easy to point fingers but we do much the same.

  2. Sigh . . . what a devastating image 🙁 Sure puts thing into perspective.

    Not to mention it frustrates me how self absorbed and spoiled our society is.

    Have you ever read the book The Hole in Our Gospel?

    If you haven't, please check it out. I think you can order a free copy online.

    Anyhoot, that book was mind, body and soul transforming for me, if that makes any sense . . . It literally made it so hard for me to relate with some of my friends who own over a hundred pair of shoes and still continue buying more, I could not understand their wants, I could not sit down with a circle of women and engage in conversations about shopping and luxury vacations. In full honesty, all of it angered me.

    I have moments where I cry tears of outrage because it boggles my mind how many people, especially Christians, who turn a blind to all the suffering that is out there.

    That photographer had a front row seat to the atrocities that exist today. He was never the same again. And how can anyone ever be when they see something like that up close and personal. It's life changing. It literally brings you to your knees. And I think our society needs that. Its need to be awakened and brought to its knees.
