Dharshie Wissah from Kakamega in Kenya took this picture and won the 2019 CIWEM environmental photographer of the year prize (category: water, equality and sustainability).
It is a shocking image for most people around the world.
The picture shows a young boy drinking dirty water due to the lack of water points in the area caused by deforestation. Lack of clean water greatly increases the risk of diarrhoeal diseases such as cholera, typhoid fever and dysentery, and other water-borne tropical diseases.
When are most of our leaders finally going to realize that they belong to the wrong family?
The “war family” has been damaging our planet for ages.
Through violence of all sorts it has dominated the “peace family”. It has caused the destruction of millions of lives and of billions worth of Nature and infrastructure.
Time to change mentality and to transform Earth into the home for all instead of into the home for a few – always having to fear that home might be destroyed as well.
History has been hard on many peoples.
Some were enslaved, some were robbed of their land and rights, some were ruthlessly decimated or nearly annihilated…
The world today is still shaken by misplaced political, religious, racial and economic superiority.
Time to put it in the right perspective and expose the erratic behaviour.
If only the many children killed or maimed in wars could touch the hearts of those that killed them and make them convert to Peace.
If only they could move international leaders to work together and to do more to stop the many wars and power games.
Invoking the help of God and speaking the language of war…
Killing innocent children, women and men that speak the language of peace…
How much longer does the silent and peaceful majority of people have to stomach these incredible incompatibilities?
Time for cosmically intelligent leaders.
