Another year over, a new one about to begin. What better time to remember the visual stories from 2014 that reminded us humanity is a beautiful, complicated mess?
We cannot be everywhere, yet photographs take us nearly everywhere. Our vision is formed by what we see from those images. For example their was a recent trending discussion on how terrible it was that young children, as young as two, were smoking in parts of Indonesia. Why? Because visuals of children smoking were posted on Godinterest. Such images hit us right in the gut.
Every week 100s of pictures are shared on Godinterest. In this post we are going to show you some of the images that caught our attention this week. Powerful pictures that everybody in the world should see. Photographs that will make you think, will make you stare and feel the emotions of that moment and perhaps will make you weep.
Some of them are popular photos that you probably have seen before, and others are pictures telling stories of ordinary people.
You will see desperate people facing the end, photos of unexpected events and photos about affection, stories of war and stories of love.
Islamist War on Christians is extending into Turkey. Turkey’s President Erdogan is already facing international calls to respect human rights in Turkey following last weekend’s failed coup. Now he’s also being encouraged to champion the rights of Christians living in the country as well. The call is coming from the Anglican Church’s venerable man in Istanbul, Canon Ian Sherwood, who for 28 years has been chaplain of the British consulate there and priest of the Crimean Memorial Church in the city. ‘As long-centuries established Christians in Turkey we are alarmed at how life is evolving in Turkey,’ says Sherwood, who warns that the climate of tolerance has changed in the country, which is more than 99 per cent Muslim, mainly Sunni. ‘We wish Turkey peace and tolerance – the same tolerance that most societies west of Turkey enjoy.’
