Self Immolation: A Reality

The world seems to look away and ignore the fact that more than 125 people have taken part in self-immolation protests within Tibet; an act of sacrifice where Tibetans have chosen to set themselves alight.

The Chinese authorities try to brush off these acts by blaming them on the Damai Lama. It’s funny how just they overlook the faults because the world wants the power of China.

The involved parties don’t just involve men, women, teachers but nuns, monks and even children have decided to take part in this act of non-violence.

Just think about the sheer amount of discipline and focus it must have taken to not flinch, scream, or show any pain as his body turns to ash.


When the Predator Becomes The Prey

When The Predators Become The Prey

Originally shot by Kevin Carter, a vivid image of when the predators become the prey. The suffering in Africa is often overlooked, a fate that the Western civilisation have accepted but unaware of how severe the pain and suffering have surmounted. Unknown of the actual fate of the girl, she at least had the strength to bare another day away and walk away from this vulture.

Criticisms arose of how Carter acted, indeed, like another vulture…encapturing her suffering and passing by. Is this true of the human race? Of course, there are a countless amount of barbaric acts seen from the beginning of time.

Three months later after recieving the Pulitzer Prize for this photo, Kevin Carter committed suicide.


Meanwhile in Russia…

The irony is that Vladamir Putin has been nominated for the Nobel Prize Peace Award.
