This should not be allowed to happen again

...
Starvation in action - the hunter awaits its prey...



 Do you remember this photo? I wish I didn't. The photo won a Pulitzer Prize award. It was taken during the Sudan famine. It is not precisely known what happened to the little girl. The photographer, Kevin Carter, came under such condemnation for not helping her, that he fell into a deep depression. Three months after the photo was taken, Kevin committed suicide. His motivation for that act will never be fully known. He left a diary behind, in which he had written a prayer to God, promising to always appreciate the food he had - no matter what. It is tragic enough to see the little girl - a victim of starvation - even if she lived. What a horrific tragedy!

See the greenery in the background? Even in the midst of the drought, something is growing! If only she had known how to find a Moringa tree, and eat its leaves...
