    You want photographers to help out every poor person they take a picture of?

    Well I am hoping the photographer well at least look after the child.
    No he didn't. It was during the famine in Sudan. Everyone was ordered not to touch the straving people even to help them due to health risks such as contracting disease.

    The photographer got a lot of criticism for standing by. Possibley this was one of the things that he took quite heavily, eventually leading to his suicide.

    You stay up for 16 hours

    He stays up for days on end.



    You take a warm shower to help you wake up.

    He goes days or weeks without running water.



    You complain of a 'headache', and call in sick.

    He gets shot at as others are hit, and keeps moving forward.



    You put on your anti war/don't support the troops shirt, and go meet up with your friends.

    He still fights for your right to wear that shirt.



    You make sure you're cell phone is in your pocket.

    He clutches the cross hanging on his chain next to his dog tags.



    You talk trash about your 'buddies' that aren't with you.

    He knows he may not see some of his buddies again.



    You walk down the beach, staring at all the pretty girls.

    He patrols the streets, searching for insurgents and terrorists



    You complain about how hot it is.

    He wears his heavy gear, not daring to take off his helmet to wipe his brow.



    You go out to lunch, and complain because the restaurant got your order wrong.

    He doesn't get to eat today.



    Your maid makes your bed and washes your clothes.

    He wears the same things for weeks, but makes sure his weapons are clean.



    You go to the mall and get your hair done.

    He doesn't have time to brush his teeth today.



    You're angry because your class ran 5 minutes over.

    He's told he will be held over an extra 2 months.



    You call your girlfriend and set a date for tonight.

    He waits for the mail to see if there is a letter from home.



    You hug and kiss your girlfriend, like you do everyday.

    He holds his letter close and smells his love's perfume.



    You roll your eyes as a baby cries.

    He gets a letter with pictures of his new child, and wonders if they'll ever meet.



    You criticize your government, and say that war never solves anything.

    He sees the innocent tortured and killed by their own people and remembers why he is fighting.



    You hear the jokes about the war, and make fun of men like him.

    He hears the gunfire, bombs and screams of the wounded.



    You see only what the media wants you to see.

    He sees the broken bodies lying around him.

    You are asked to go to the store by your parents. You don't.

    He does exactly what he is told even if it puts his life in danger.



    You stay at home and watch TV.

    He takes whatever time he is given to call, write home, sleep, and eat.



    You crawl into your soft bed, with down pillows, and get comfortable.

    He tries to sleep but gets woken by mortars and helicopters all night long.

    Yeah I do, but it's not practical, so i don't expect them to. And apparently from the looks of another poster there may have been an infection risk.

    Well from the picture it would seem that afrer he left the girl was a gonner.

    But her mother had left her to get food from a UN plane, thats when the picture was taken. So it's not like he left her there to die and walked off without a care in the world. Besides what could he have done?

    Give her some of his food and water etc.
    There's a lot of things he could have done, and obviously the fact he latter killed himself might be a an indication of that.
