I posted a Bible verse yesterday regarding OUR responsibility to ACT, once we know the pain that is in this world. In light of that verse, I am posting this picture. Now we have seen it with our own eyes. I’ve never seen anything quite like this.
Kevin Carter’s Pulitzer prize winning photo taken in 1993 during the Sudan famine, the picture depicts a famine stricken child being stalked by a vulture, the child is crawling toward a united nations food camp, located a kilometer away.
No one knows what happened to the child, including the photographer who left the scene as soon as the photo was taken. He later confided to friends that he wished he had intervened. Journalists at the time were warned never to touch famine victims for fear of disease.
Three months later, and only two weeks after being bestowed with the Pulitzer Prize, Kevin Carter committed suicide.
