The above is an image of a Red Cross volunteer carrying the body of a Syrian boy, who died along many others in a snow storm as they trekked through the rugged, snow covered mountains in Syria.
I question why the above doesn’t make prime time news headlines? Isn’t it safe to assume that this falls under categories of tragedy and injustice, all of which are serious global issues that should be addressed. It’s beyond frustrating, but who’s to blame for it?
There is a trending pattern of the ‘we’ fighting against the ‘them’ to prove some sort of a powerful point in the name of insert caption (whatever is chosen to frame the operation).
And from then on the battle begins, people are killed, lives are changed, and so hope is understandably lost because If hardship is all you see, it become all that you know.
* DING * Perfect!
The media picks up the story, fabricates element of the truth, and broadcasts to create what we call ‘dramatic Television’. The public is then fed information through perfectly written scripts and well positioned visuals based on a decision made by a person of authority (perhaps a manager of a department or a CEO of the company) ensuring that the annual ‘ratings’ targets are met. Pathetic.
While all of the above is happening, and the stupidity of mankind is increasing, who is telling this child’s story and the many more just like him? What would his mother and father have felt? How is this fair?
