One photograph that has helped awaken the world about the effects of poverty in Africa is the one above showing a Sudanese child being stalked by a vulture nearby. It is quite obvious that the child was starving to death, while the vulture was patiently waiting for the toddler to die so he can have a good meal.
Nobody knows what happened to the child, who crawled his way to a United Nations food camp. Photographer Kevin Carter won a Pulitzer Prize for this shocking picture, but he eventually committed suicide three months after he took the shot.

That is fucking awful. There are pictures of starving children and horrible country torn wars and you're going to mention something about Bush's picture. Shut the fuck up.

When people in Iraq voted for a new leader they voted by putting ink on there finger and marking which candidate they wanted . So the image of an Iraq practising democracy after Saddam is powerful to me, also the fact he is making a peace sign is amazing.
