No one will ever have to live what way again? Children won't bask in the forcefully fascinating violent beauty of nature? They will no longer be mesmerized and will no longer wonder at the world with some sense of satisfaction, standing as the sky clears over and the air cools? Perhaps it is the poverty you perceive with such presumptuous pity, but they look happy here.
it is hardly presumptuous to pity those in poverty, since nearly 1 billion go to bed hungry every night, billions live in abject poverty and in substandard housing, many without even clean drinking water. if this is your idea of happiness dear one, then the one i pity is YOU. the Prince of Peace will eliminate poverty forever (see Psalm ch 72).
What is presumptuous is the perception of these children as some of those people to be pitied.It is indeed a shame that there is such suffering, though these children are as I said happy and healthy here. Romania is hardly the third word. Plus, pity was negative connotations of superiority unlike say, sympathy. An aside, I would not suggest citing The Bible as the sacred standard of truth, that won't work with me unless you want to start a flame war. Might I suggest that in the future you comment on the content of photos and not the state of their subjects, please.
I got a better idea. I try to be hopeful and real. You want to project arrogance and godlessness. How sad. This is goodbye felicia. Ps. I am old enough to be your father. Do they not teach children respect in Romania?
I'm sorry sir, did you think me to be Felicia? Her username is *Ineedchemicalx*, mine is signalspells. I am a Canadian-American and yes, you are old enough to be my father. Regardless, I'm ignorant as to how Romanian children are taught to regard their elders, but I was raised with the belief that one is required to earn respect, and that their 'elder' age doesn't guarantee they get it; I've no reason to respect you yet.
This is such a powerful picture! I'm struggling to put the why into words- The setting is so dynamic and gritty where as you have the happy people off to the left and the studious boy to the right, it really struck me when i saw it. I think this picture really captures the feeling of loneliness, even if that's not what you were intending? Im just trying to think what rain makes me feel, but it's not quite sadness or loneliness, its a combination.
