Kevin Carter did not live the high life.
He chased the vulture away, went over to a near by tree and smoked a cigarette.
30 days later he killed himself.
If you see a million babies starving, a million dogs gassed, a million children raped, where in sam hell do you begin.
It's like a hole in Hoover Dam the Size of a house.
My understanding is Kevin Carter did win awards and donated quite a bit of the monies to the relief of hunger.
He simply went mad at seeing the sheer number of starving babies.
Now in answer to your question, I will pose one to you.................he made the world aware of this problem.
What have you done to eliminate human suffering??????
If you come back at me with what I have done, yes I will give you a list and it's a long one because I have put my money where my mouth is.
Do not judge another person, you - me, we did not personally know this man.
Simply worry about what you, yourself are doing.
Giving a homeless person a used blanket and a bag of groceries.
Picking up some trash laying around
Asking your elderly neighbor if you can pick him/her up anything while you, yourself are going to the store
Putting a quarter in a parking meter that is over due and the car is old and junky looking
Giving to Toys For Tots
Giving to Hunger Relief
Joining the Peace Corps
Joining Building Habitat for Humanity
Anything, it all begins with us caring about each other.
