Humanity is the best quality!

Dear friends, I was reading about a photograph of Kelvin Carter’s, which got an award from UNESCO in 1994 (Pulitizer). I received the award winning photo also in my mobile. It was disheartening to see the picture, a Sudanese girl collapsed on starvation as she was trying to get a packet of food distributed by UNESCO. A Vulture stood few yards away from the girl waiting for the death of this girl. (In photo the Vulture and collapsed girl is seen) Kelvin waited 30 minutes to know what may happen watching the vulture and the girl. Then he took the photo and left the place, for photo he got an award later. Kelvin got much criticism and blames for not trying to save the life of that girl. He had done suicide as he could not over come such mental tortures. What I felt from this incident, his photograph become worthy for a prize but he has not showed humanity. The moral I learned here, humanity is the best quality, all of us must have to maintain in our life. Whatever we achieve in our life will be equal to nothing if we lost the Humanity within us. Your views please? (I am not attaching the prize winning photo as it may be a violation)

I wonder why that person did not feed the girl then. He surely could have arranged something in that much time. And even if he was in a remote place, he could have tried to take that girl to somewhere so as to be able to save her. I think saving a life matters more than a medal or a certificate.
