we need more people doing this publishing.

Coming from Africa, I too starved. My mom didn’t even had corn flour to feed me and my two younger sisters. It is really sad that kids struggled against obesity in one part of the world and african children died from the lack the basics…food.

It was hard to see these images. Now, I am still hit with them and I do attempt to help when I can, but many in the USA are without work and on food subsidy. I feel so bad for them. Sometimes the food never gets to these precious people.

It is hard to understand how things like this can happen when we have all the tools at hand to avert them.
In the last 100 years we have developed exponentially in the fields of technology, computer science, and engineering yet at the same rate neglected the growth of ethics, common sense and wisdom.
I wish our kids could get a scholarship for outstanding ethics instead of sports.

I have been through certain days when I saw pictures that weren’t maybe gruesome but so hard hitting, as if the picture spoke to that person inside of me who I have draped with a cover of insensitivity that we don when in news.. and leave behind such helplessness, and then some anger somewhere over the next opulence we indulge in.
