Moving images

9 Mar

The work of this photographer is amazing. While there are a few images of joy, most are of tragedy–anguish and pain caused by man’s own inhumanity to man. (Men seem to be the perpetrators and their acts create victims of both genders.) Famine. War. Greed. Hatred. Alone or together they wound us.

You may be tempted to not view the images, and that temptation is very understandable. It’s easier for us to practice “out of sight, out of mind.”

But we must see what we are doing to our brothers and sisters, directly or indirectly, and ask ourselves what we can do to change things. Individually, we probably cannot do a lot, but with others we might have a chance. Here are a few options:

Twenty bucks to one or more organizations like this doesn’t absolve us of our sins, but it would be a greater sin to sit by and do nothing at all.

If you don’t have a few dollars to spare (and even if you do), be sure to visit the One Campaign and add your name to the list. It really is the least you can do, but it’s still better than nothing.
