Great nikkitta 2014-03-03 13:05

Hola Klaudio

Very, very moving capture of a fact that is happening in lots of countries, being social worker and so working with people that comes from next countries and must stay and suffer terrible non human conditions, quite aunderstand the subject, just read about Obama planing to shut Guantanamo (as promissed)only to transfer the prisioners to an ignote island from Yemen

Of course your experience must be remembered as a terrific one, but for sure Australia will change it politics face inmigration, being the papulation of this same origen
The worse is to emigrate to a poor country, believe me
The colors of you capture are mainly dark as is the present for these people but there is also a sun, meaning some kind of good life ahead

Well done and presented
Maria

Default To nikkitta: Poverty of Compassion

Dear Maria,
Poverty is a relative thing. Argentina is not perceived as poor considering its GDP. The treatment of people fleeing persecution and dictatorships is something else. One has to realize that countries like India accepted a large Tibetan refugee population, Turkey almost a million Syrians, Iran more than a million Afghans, Pakistan the same- yet these countries are not rich by any means. Maybe we are not poor, not the white collar caste, but our hearts have grown poor in compassion.One should remember the story of the Good Samaritan but unfortunately our Prime Minister, a self professed true Christian, and our cabinet that opens its sessions with a prayer, have forgotten the teaching of their mentor.
