Photo Challenge: Humanity

Humanity. And its many dimensions. It's probably the most interesting subject any print, broadcast and the social media can have.

Here is my own share of a human story.

I was among a three-member Board of Judges for a cultural show in our hometown, and as usual, we were served with delicious foods more than we can consume. After eating, a man approached me and asked if he can take the left-overs for his pet cats and dogs. Realizing that there were many left-overs I looked around and saw these dirty hungry children. I said to the man: “you may collect the left-overs later”.

I approached the children, washed their hands and led them to the food table. I realized how hungry they were by the way they gobbled up the foods in no time at all. I enjoyed the sight. It was so touching, wonderful, fulfilling seeing those kids feed on food which they may have only tasted for the first time.

From that time on, I said to myself: “while I love my pet dogs and cats, the hungry children shall be fed first. There will always be leftovers anyway”.

Afterwards, I rushed to the bathroom to hide the fact that I had to wipe some tears I didn’t know they had sympathized with me. Thank you Lord for giving me this one golden opportunity to make me feel I was so human.

I hope to write for a cause someday but for now all I wanted really is to write for a cost and I haven't started yet, or better still, nobody wants to pay me :-)
