"The government wants us poor and, above all, poor of mind"

I apologize in advance if someone gets offended by the comparison.
These kids are my heroes.

Thank you Gustavo and Peter.
I was very lucky to be right in front of the statue when the kids decided to put the pencil in Jose Marti's hand.
My camera was ready, I only had to shoot. Smile

Your news from Venezuela is subsumed by the events the Crimea, Marian, so we don't get to hear details of your troubles there.
I will make a point of reading up on the situation.
At first sight it looks like a situation that will get worse before it gets any better.
Meanwhile, please take great care.

Your picture today is full of impact.

In my paper yesterday was a photo of the water hoses being used against the citizens in your town....
It wasn't one of your photos but I thought I should tell you the photos are coming through
The Russian problem is dominating news over here at the time.
Just keep snapping......you are recording the future history.

Excellent, and important work, and it applies to all governments.
As the Romans established, you give the people Bread and circuses, and that keeps them placid. Or nowadays MacDonalds and reality TV...

You appear to have a real affinity for photojournalism, you're getting bold shots that tell a story.

I love that comparison in your title, Marian. Very apt indeed.
Wonderful photojournalism here, keep them coming, but think always of your own safety.
No picture is worth getting killed or injured for!
