I saw a kid dressed like a young man , he was among adults. Surely his story was the same story of the very millions of kids that even today are struggling and suffering for their daily lives.
They are constrained to grow up very soon. Adults don’t give them the right to play with their peers. They are exploited in sweat-shops to produce goods for the wealthy economy.
This is also the story of a misfortuned continent. Its natural profusion was a bad luck for their inhabitants. One of the best of their generations was captured, enslaved and brought away from its Mother. Africa…the Mother of all Mothers, she’s our Mother. Her land was plundered and yet it’s today.
I look at this kid, at his profound eyes and I feel embarassed and guilty.
I feel embarassed for our economy and for our politicians who aren’t willing to give more than 1% of their GNP to the European Development Fund and I’m even more embarassed for my own country which is among the more stingier european countries. Here are some figures to expand your consciousness:
Great Britain: 0.51%
This photo is so marvelous because it speaks for itself and he let me question about our society in a critical manner.
It’s almost Christmas time but for the vast majority of the people living on the planet earth it’s just another day of suffering.
My sincere thank goes to David Malcolmson and his invaluable artistic sensibility.
