AID?

I was looking at the drawings of children affected by the war and atrocities in Sudan and came upon this drawing and amazingly simple quote. It needs to be asked to those wealthy individuals whose corporations provide weapons to this region for profit. You have probably all seen recent documentaries or films on the subject of weapons trade and how both sides of a conflict are backed by the same company, simply to ensure years of sales for the already filthy rich. Filthy is a really good adjective in this case, huh? All I know is that there will be justice, even if it is not realized during this lifetime.  



One young artist named Aisha said: 

"It is very kind to send us food, but this is Africa and we are used to being hungry. What I ask is that you please take the guns away from the people who are killing us."
