↳ the angels take manhattanThis is the story of Amelia Pond. And this is how it ends.
“When we find out who did this, we may well find some fascination with the event—perhaps a foreign terrorist, or a sick American. Perhaps it was someone who spotted a terribly easy target. Or perhaps it was someone who saw a reflection of the human spirit and decided just to try to shatter it.”
-NICHOLAS THOMPSON, The New York Times
Already sickened by the glimpse into the fragility and horror of human existence provided by a multiple-bombing in my home state, I am made even more ill by the polarizing nature of this reporter’s phrasing: if the perpetrator was American, he was “sick,” but if he was not American, he was most definitely a “terrorist.” How do we as a species grow and progress when we use such divisive language, willfully (mis)categorizing people we don’t even know in such a xenophobic and hateful way?
