The Don: Shaped By War. by EarthHart The Don: Shaped By War. by EarthHart
One of the great war photographers, :worship: Don McCullin, at the Bishop's Palace, to unveil a new sculpture "The Weight of Our Sins" earthhart.deviantart.com/art/T… It's a sculpture by the late Josefina De Vasconcellos, and was gifted to the Bishop's Palace, by Prof G. Romaine Hervey in memory of the sculptor, his friend.

The sculpture shows eight children, and they represent the wrongs the children of the world still suffer.
Child & Sexual Abuse, Famine, Aids, Infanticide, War & Land Mines, Genocide, Child Labour, Homeless & Drug Abuse.
To coincide with this, there's an exhibition of Don's work, in the Conference Room of the Palace.

They say that the Nazarene gave His life for Man's sins.
He failed. Man has committed sins beyond belief & continues to do so.

Today, four children were blown up by an IED (Improvised Explosive Device) in Afghanistan.
And Christianity doesn't fair any better if not worse. Decades of sexual abuse of children by priests of a Church that should know better, but hid it from its followers. If a Church commits such abuse, where will it all end...

This man is a great photographer, I first found out about him after watching this video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uixbV… He has a way of being very photogenic, he has eyes that have clearly seen a lot.

Sorry I'm not on Only Unique any more. I've dropped three sites as I find I don't have the time for all of them.
Give my love to Andre, and I hope the dogs are doing well :huggle:

That's okay. We miss you and your photos but I really understand you :hug:
And I'm absolutely happy about your DD. This is really wonderful :love:
And we're very fine, Andre, the dogs and me too.
I'm sorry that you're not on FB because you could see how the dogs grow and our sheep.
The sheep are so wonderful. We do have Skudden and at the End of the September we will become Weiß Gehörnte Heidschnucken (I don't know the english words for this :( ).
Andre will breed the Weiß Gehörnte Heidschnucken because there are not many animals in Germany, only 1.000.
So I hope everything this fine with you :hug:
