Tree of Pain

Imagine a tree, where every leaf is a thought, and all the thoughts are linked by branches to one only body, one only living being. But if that same living being is not capable to express them to others wouldn't he live in constant pain? So, he would be, a Tree of Pain.

" PULITZER PRIZE " winning photo taken in 1994 during the Sudan famine.
The picture depicts a famine stricken child crawling towards an United Nations food camp, located a kilometer away. The vulture is waiting for the child to die so that it can eat it.
This picture shocked the whole world. No one knows what happened to the child, including the photographer Kevin Carter who left the place as soon as the photograph was taken.

Three months later he committed suicide due to depression.

Aqui estão algumas das suas frases escritas na carta de suicidio:

"I'm really, really sorry,"

"The pain of life overrides the joy to the point that joy does not exist."

"I have always had it all at my feet, but being me just fit up anyway."

"depressed . . . without phone . . . money for rent . . . money for child support . . . money for debts . . . money!!! . . . I am haunted by the vivid memories of killings & corpses & anger & pain . . . of starving or wounded children, of trigger-happy madmen, often police, of killer executioners . . . " And then this: "I have gone to join Ken if I am that lucky."
