Images do have power that words cannot always bring about. What would it be like to feel such a small, frail, gaunt hand in mine?
As a wordsmith, I’ve always envied the simple and compelling power of pictures. This one, of a gaunt, starved African child’s hand, speaks volumes to Westerners about the blessings we take for granted. No matter how poor you are, compared to other nations, you are rich, simply because you live in the First World. We ought to be grateful for the blessings GOD has bestowed on us.
I am ashamed but I am grateful. God have mercy on the poor starving children.
It is interesting how those feelings complement each other sometimes.
Amen Ivon. So many times we have no idea what we really have and how blessed we are.
I agree Bill. It is easy to get caught in the chase.
That picture is haunting! How very sad that such a huge problem exists, and that our eating less can’t fix it.
Yes, if eating less could help directly, it would be easy to solve.
How right you are Ivon. We take so much for granted.
