The Shame of Ireland
I have been agonising on weather to post this distressing picture for some time, (for obvious reasons)
The picture was taken in the Sudan in 1993. It is a very sad story of a child dying of starvation only a mile from a aid station. The fate of the child is not known.
The reason i have used the picture is one of neglect by the person who took the photo. He was driving through the Sudan ,spotted the oppotunity of a good picture, took the picture and drove off, leaving the child to its fate.
Having developed the picture some monthe later he realised what he had done and took his own life.
I would hope this sad story pricks the conshence of those who betrayed and neglected us.
If this picture distresses anybody please let me know and i will remove it.
