Why is this happening?
The people I talk to have barely heard about the tragedy going on, in southern Somalia.
We heard about Haiti right away, of course. And we heard about the Tsunami, in Japan, just as quickly.
Why is it, that when yet another tragedy hits the continent of Africa, Media in the West are slow to make the public aware?
Are Media simply following public interest?
Hundreds of people have died, in that region of the world--in the short time that it has taken for me to put up this Post. Hundreds of thousands may have already died, in recent weeks.
Is it that the Public and/or the Media take it for granted--because that's the way it has always been in this region of the world?
And how do we see God's role, or God's possible absence, in these kinds of massive tragedies--which could, quite arguably, be distinguished from genocides?
