Here is a photo that is disturbing

And everyday the things I take for granted.

The PHOTO is the "Pulitzer prize" winning photo taken in 1994 during the Sudan famine.

The picture depicts a famine stricken child crawling towards a United Nationsfood camp, located a kilometer away.

The vulture awaits for it’s meal. This picture shocked the world. No one knows what happened to this child.

Kevin Carter left the place soon after this photo was taken he commited suicide 3 months later due to depression.

This was found in his diary
Dear God, I promise I will never waste my food no matter how bad it can taste and how full I may be. I pray that He will protect this little boy, guide and deliver him away from his misery. I pray that we will be more sensitive towards the world around us and not be blinded by our own selfish nature and interests.
I hope this picture will always serve as a reminder to us that how fortunate we are and that we must never ever take things for granted.
