What would you do?
This video shows graphic footage shot from a window opposite the Bataclan Hall in Paris that was attacked by terrorists late Friday evening.
There are people hanging from the windows whilst others escape into the street below them. It’s impossible not to feel unsettled as you realise one escapee is dragging a body. Even the escape route has 2 bodies lying in its doorway. Throughout, the soundtrack is gunfire.
We should never shield ourselves from the mess our world is in because it isn’t shielding, it’s hiding. We’ve created this world and allowed ourselves to become so desensitised that when planes are blown out of the sky or the N2 gets closed by protesters, it becomes an arbitrary sentence promptly forgotten after the coffee or beer is finished. So many people i know don’t even sum up a single meaningful sentence, choosing (instead) to chat about the weather.
Sacrifice your willful ignorance. Rub your nose in the mess we’re responsible for. Change isn’t impossible. It just has to start in your suburb, in your town…
