National Geographic: Pieces Of Southern Sudan

Since I have a lot to be thankful for, I’m posting one of my personal favorite photos of all time.




This photograph was selected by National Geographic Magazine to be part of the prestigious Daily Dozen, and was featured in March of 2011. It was also invited to be part of their stock photographs at Netgeo stock. com


The Caption:


In the latter part of 2010, I was part of a mission in Gogrial, Southern Sudan under Medicins Sans Frontieres/Doctors Without Borders. I served as a surgeon for three months, during which time we were able to help hundreds of people with their medico-surgical problems. I particularly love this photograph, because in the midst of impending war, most of the people, even the children, were still able to project a strong, even inspiring sense of hope.


I will comment on your streams after a few hours...promise!
