Quo Vadis???

This is one of the most distressing images I have seen. Each person will have his or her own interpretation. Photograph was taken by Kevin Carter, and the story behind the picture can be found at http://www.juanfernandopacheco.com, together with a collection of awsome well -known and not so well-known images.

This photograph was take in 1993, during the Sudanese famine, today they have other problems with the same result.

Eienstein said " I know not what weapons will be used in World War III, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones."
Maybe the greatest Weapon of Mass Destruction is famine and global change.

...or maybe the greatest WMD is the corporatization of the world through the (pretending to be charitable in order to globalize the economy) World Bank.

I recall this photo from 2003, Kevin Carter won a few major awards for this photo. What many people don't know, is that Mr. Carter killed himself not too long after.
He was very distraught about not doing anything to help this child.
