The Truth of Suffering

I had seen it months ago, but did nothing. It got lost in that sea of tweets, saber-rattling over North Korea and post-Brexit negotiations. It was forgotten in Canada when Trump questioned Canada’s behaviour under NAFTA. Nor was it remembered with the coverage of the French election.

It didn’t go anywhere, becoming worse everywhere. The images of children in South Sudan, souls in skeletons, a two year child weighing less than a two month old. He died by the time his story hit the air.

The famine in South Sudan is a crisis. It may not affect some of us like a United passenger being dragged off a plane by security. But it affects us. Amidst all the fake news, this is real.
