Artists have always led change. They’ve always focused our outrage and pain into more constructive ends.
This video is not easy to watch. It is meant to be difficult to watch precisely because it is almost impossible to imagine what these scenes must actually look and feel like to those trying to survive them.
We only hear numbers after the events. We only see the kids who’ve survived, running out with their arms in the air.
We don’t see bodies. We don’t see the carnage, we don’t see the blood. So much blood.
Perhaps, if we did, we would find a common ground apart from politics where human compassion still exists, to unite us, as it did for a few days following the 9/11 attacks.
