Kevin Carter and His Pulitzer

    In March of 1993, amidst the brutality and anguish suffered by the people of sub-Saharan Africa, Kevin Carter took one of the most infamous photographs of its time. In the photo, an emaciated Sudanese toddler struggles to crawl toward a nearby aid station for food while a vulture sits just a few feet behind her, waiting for his own meal.

    According to Carter, he stood by for 20 minutes hoping the vulture would spread its wings which would make a much better shot but eventually just took the picture as we see it today. The severely starved toddler stopped crawling for awhile to catch her breath while Carter stood feet away and watched her suffer through his camera lens. After he snapped the photo, Carter scared the vulture away and left the toddler, who most likely starved to death before she reached the aid station.

     Carter later defended his non-action by stating that he “didn’t want to get involved.” He simply assumed that the humanitarian efforts were the responsibility of the aid workers, not a bystander such as he was at the time. The photograph awarded him the Pulitzer Prize. Carter killed himself the following year.

One reaps what he has sown! In the end it all works out accordingly to God's plan. One can lie to everyone, but you yourself knows the truth! Compassion goes a long way in humanity when one chooses it over & above anything else! Compassion = Caring =Love.

Carter paid the price for 'sensationalism by all means'

Karma is a bitch.

How many of the main stream - deception have been awarded in the last decades to distort truth ?

How many of literature - deception have been awarded in the last decades to pervert human mind ?

It is the Ministry of NSearch that all inherit the Kingdom of God

But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law....

Now the works of the flesh are evident, 

which are adultery fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,

idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies,

outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy,

murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like;

of which I (Paul the Apostle) tell you beforehand,

just as I also told you in time past, that those who 

practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. 

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering,

kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control,

against such there is no law. Those who are Christ's

have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Let us not become conceited, provoking one another,

envying one another.

Galatians 5:18-26

{Sorcery: "Pharmakia;" Primarily mentioned as one of the "works of the flesh." In "sorcery" the use of drugs. Blue Letter Bible. Galatians 5:20}
