The face of a hero- (follow on from last post.)

This photo was taken from the U.N.'s site on 'Conflict Diamonds,' this little boys hands were chopped off by rebel machetes. For me, this shot is important as basically it doesn't need to be happening, der. More seriously, in Africa and South Africa areas with diamond mines basically could have the capacity and re courses to pay for better health care and education with the money the diamonds could make. However, with the diamond-mines being taken over by rebels, all this potential money is lost in the hands of corruption. I'm aware I've written incredibly simply about something not so simple, but this is merely to get the point across.
