Photo of the Week, 17 July 2011

I wasn’t quite sure what photo I would share with you this week… until I saw this story about the Somalian drought that is causing a crisis for human rights workers.

And then, immediately, I knew what photo I would share.

Eighteen years ago, Kevin Carter, took the photograph he titled “Waiting Game for Sudanese Child.”  The photo, which won the 1994 Pulitzer Prize, instantly captured the living hell of famine.  Now, Somalis are overcome with war-torn strife that is leading them to walk to Kenya for help.

When, if ever, will the ‘waiting game’ be over?
