i mean, we are in the middle of one of the greatest extinctions of biodiversity in the earth's history, during a time in which there are more human beings alive right now than have ever existed in previous history. and the numbers keep going up. as does our consumption of earth's resources.

so, yea... sorry for the hijack there. and although i have more sympathy for native peoples than i do for just about any other group of humans, the picture does not move me very much in all honesty. i've seen the roles reversed too many times, i guess...

Well said and I agree, entirely.

This is so... so sad. I look at this story and wonder if I would have said, "screw it" and just ignored the rules they had about not interfering just to help the kid out. Thats probably what got him deep down, thinking that he should have just done what was right by him. Its a shame

Meh, starvation happens. The world knows this. What my 14-year-old self didn't know is that you can get reamed by a horse and die. Thank you, internet.

That image will forever linger in the depths of what I called my adolescence, not some starving child.

Sad picture, but to kill yourself over? Common man, you could of lived to help people like that but instead you take the cowards way out. Get out of here, no respect for people who commit suicide.

If you read the article it says he was emotionally unstable. And I doubt it was specifically because of this one picture, he was in Sudan for years taking pictures of fucked up stuff. An emotionally unstable person seeing things that could scare even the most hardened person isn't exactly the best combo.

Sad picture indeed, to say he commited suicide over this picture alone is naive. He most likely spent months watching children like this die. In which case I can understand why he would drive himself into depression and then death.
