Kevin  Carter

( September 13, 1960 – July 27, 1994 )

 

 

"The Pulitzer Prizes" winning photo taken in 1994 during the Sudan famine.The picture depicts a famine stricken child crawling towards an United Nations food camp,
 located a kilometer away. The vulture is waiting for the child to die so that it can eat it.
This picture shocked the whole world.
 No one knows what happened to the child, including the photographer Kevin Carter who left the place as soon as the photograph was taken.

Three months later he committed suicide due to depression.

Kevin Carter died of carbon monoxide poisoning at the age of 33.

The last person to see Carter alive was Oosterbroek's widow, Monica. Portions of Carter's suicide note read:

"I am depressed ... without phone ... money for rent ... money for child support ... money for debts ... money!!! ...
I am haunted by the vivid memories of killings & corpses & anger & pain ... of starving or wounded children, of trigger-happy madmen, often police, of killer executioners...
I have gone to join Ken if I am that lucky."

Prezime EZGETA —  Surname EZGETA
je najvjerojatije po podrijetlu motivirano zanimanjem: prvonositelj je bio po zanimanju EGZETA.
Tumacio je, objasnjavao i iznosio kriticka objasnjenja biblijskih i drugih vjerskih i pravnih tekstova.
Naziv EZGETA najvjerojatnije je izveden kracenjem naziva EZGEGETA,
od starogrcke rijeci EXEGETES (
ἐξήγησις od ἐξηγεῖσθαι) = PROROK, PROPOVJEDNIK, TUMAC, UCITELJ, SAVJETNIK, GATALAC
(gl. e x e g e i s t h a i = pokazati put, voditi (voditi van), izloziti, objasniti, tumaciti itd.)

(prije nego sto je rimski vojskovoða Quintus Cecilus Metellus osvojio Kretu) odselili na Dalmatinske otoke, a odatle...

Ime CARMEN — latinski: PJESMA (Carmen, -inis, n.)    /   Name CARMEN — Latin: SONG, TUNE, POEM (|noun| Carmen, Carminis Neuter)
and is also the root of the English word charm.
