Do the images have the power to change the world?

Do the images have the power to change the world?
  First and foremost, I have to say that Jonathan Klein is right about the fact that photos can change the world. However photos do have the power to give a big impact on the viewers. Dramatic photos have the ability to play with psychology and emotion  at the viewers, Therefore the person who sees it, would want to do something to make a different, when hundreds and thousands of people sees the same image, there is a big chance that many of them would want to do something about it.

  As for me, when I see pictures of people in third world countries dying out of hunger, the first thing that I will say is, “how can such a thing happen to a person?” how can someone die due to starvation, when we fortunate people can simply waste our food? Such a thing should not happen. If I have a power to change things, I would definitely hold a campaign to not waste food and water, and then I would send a people to those famine-affected countries to hold a famine relief.

  On the other hand, there are images that will inspire us to reach for the stars. It can let us imagine beyond our reach to think outside the box that could change people’s perception on things. Before, when we think that something is impossible this picture prove us that this things are possible and achievable.

  As the old saying goes, “a picture speaks a thousand words,” so we can conclude that, pictures can impact us to take action. It takes full support and effort from the society to change the world and make it a better place for the entire human race.

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful...surah,,Al,Alaq

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

96:1 Proclaim! (or read!) in the name of thy Lord and Cherisher, Who created-
96:2 Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood:
96:3 Proclaim! And thy Lord is Most Bountiful,-
96:4 He Who taught (the use of) the pen,-
96:5 Taught man that which he knew not.
96:6 Nay, but man doth transgress all bounds,
96:7 In that he looketh upon himself as self-sufficient.
96:8 Verily, to thy Lord is the return (of all).
96:9 Seest thou one who forbids-
96:10 A votary when he (turns) to pray?
96:11 Seest thou if he is on (the road of) Guidance?-
96:12 Or enjoins Righteousness?
96:13 Seest thou if he denies (Truth) and turns away?
96:14 Knoweth he not that Allah doth see?
96:15 Let him beware! If he desist not, We will drag him by the forelock,-
96:16 A lying, sinful forelock!
96:17 Then, let him call (for help) to his council (of comrades):
96:18 We will call on the angels of punishment (to deal with him)!
96:19 Day, heed him not: But bow down in adoration, and bring thyself the closer (to Allah)!

In this surah, God presents a concise but compelling argument: Man is a creature of wonder, beginning with its development from a biomass (or Alaq), who has been granted the gift of sentience by God. Then as a being Man divides into two distinct groups: those who recognize their cosmic condition, seek divine guidance (by 'reading' God's word), and bow to God's will (symbolized by 'prostration'); and those who even in the face of these apparent wonders of Man's condition, consider the Human to be an 'independent' entity, answerable to no transcendent authority, and even more contentiously, take it upon themselves to prevent the first class of man from following God's Word and submitting to Him.
God then states that the first type of Man, the believer, is the righteous one, and that the second class is both in error and is in fact a "lying and sinful" creature. The sura concludes with God's warning to the denier that the "guards of Hell" await, and that such men should cease from denying the believer the right to worship unmolested by them. The sura's last verse are words of encouragement to the believer to "not yield" to the threats of unbelievers but to continue in persistence in obeying God, and a promise of nearness to God for such a believer.
