    These are all just so…shocking, depressing….I don’t even have the words.

    Thank you for doing this Ophelia, but dammit, it’s really making me lose any hope for humanity. This kind of killing is just a drop in the bucket of human horrors that we do to ourselves every day (as a species). 🙁

  2. says

    I know. I’m sorry. But I think it’s so important to pay full attention. Losing hope is kind of an inevitable result of paying full attention.

    I’m wondering if anyone did the same thing for the schoolchildren who were murdered in Peshawar, and if I can stand to find it and post about them too…
