Pictures Worth More Than 10,000 Words

They say that pictures are worth more than a thousand words...well, to me some pictures are actually worth more than 10,000 words! Yes, I don't think I can find ten thousand words to describe the cruelty I see in the picture below.

I recently came across this picture on twitter (via @PeterKiarie) and I just could not fathom what it was was that drove some people to do this. A symptom of our society? A few weeks ago, I tried to write about how we are embracing the culture of evil triumphing over bad here and what I could not put in words then, this picture says it all for me.


  1. I don't even know what to say to that picture. It makes me ashamed of the human race! How sad...

    Thank you for stopping by my blog, I am reading through your posts and following you...

  2. Hey Anna, thanks for passing by. As for the picture, yes, one fails to understand why...

  3. This is so disturbing and sad. It makes me sick actually.:(

  4. Colleen, it is beyond imagination to imagine what goes on inside an individual's head and soul when they do this. I can however tell you that this is nothing when you hear about some of the atrocities people do to each other during the civil wars here in Africa!

  5. I'm sure you are right. Our world is in a sorry state.

  6. Came across your blog after seeing this image on social media and searching online to try to find out the source of the photo and what is really happening in it.
    Any ideas? (Agree that the image is extremely disturbing)
