I really enjoyed reading the article about YOUSTINK I honestly had no idea that these issues were even happening in Lebanon. I thought the article was very well written and I absolutely loved the Photojournalism project. I found the images to be very striking. Each Imagine alone provoked strong emotions within.
I can not imagine being in a country where you are forced to live in your own and others peoples trash. people may read this article and not think its that big of a deal but if you can only imagine how much trash you use in a week and then picture how much trash your roommates use and then imagine not knowing or having any place to put that trash forcing the person to live in pure filth it would make anyone upset and sounds like its a horrible living environment. It is very hard to try to understand what that would be like given the fact that all of us live in the United States and basic sanitation is taken care of. This class continues to remind me how lucky we are to live in America. The pictures really helped me to understand to the extent of what was going on. When reading the article, I attempted to put myself in the people of Lebanon’s shoes and imagine waking up and going to sleep to the smell of trash. It would truly be horrible and I commend the people for protesting. I think we should all make not of what the people of the Middle East our doing and keep in mind the power of revolution and being able to protest.
