Count yourself lucky.
South African photographer Kevin Carter took this picture of a sudanese child being stalked by a vulture. It was the real face of starvation. He chased the vulture away after taking the photograph which shocked and outraged people worldwide. Kevin Carter committed suicide three months later, he suffered from depression.
Today a friend sent one of those forwards. You find yourself sickened by the images of starving children, children whose skin is cracked from malnutrition, children who bathe in cow piss because it is liquid, children who are all bones with skin stretched tight.
