Weekly Photo Challenge: Wrong

While in Australia I had the opportunity to visit the far northern reaches of the country for time in Kakadu National Park.  Home to the Aboriginal people and a World Heritage listed park, this sprawling and untouched region of Australia is not to be missed.  My contribution to the weekly photo challenge this week is a photo that I captured en route to my hotel after a long day of touring in the park.  I had learned about the rich cultural heritage of the Aboriginal people and had contemplated the struggles that they have undergone through the decades.  Feeling a bit unsettled our driver told us that a group of local protestors had started a fire and it engulfed a car and some other debris that was nearby.  While I am a firm believer in voicing your opinion and taking action for change I can never endorse harm to people or damage to property and possessions.  It seems wrong to me.

  1. I complely agree – freedom of speech is an incredible liberty but using violence to harm others or destroying public or private property is unproductive and driven more by emotion.

Please let me know your thoughts...
