NY Times journalist Nicholas Kristof writes of George Clooney in Darfur: "Mr. Clooney figured that since cameras follow him everywhere, he might as well redirect some of that spotlight to people who need it more."

Kristof continues:

In Darfur and eastern Chad, you can randomly approach any group of people and find heartbreaking stories. Mr. Clooney was clowning around with a group of boys bathing in the river - taking their photo and showing it to them digitally - and that's when we met the 13-year-old boy with the bullet in his knee.
