A Civil War Hits London, This Shocking One Second a Day Video Shows How it Destroys a Little Girl’s Life
This video reminds me of that time when I lived in Frankfurt, Germany and my school bus was stopped on the road right next to a car that had been bombed and we had to wait there until the police cleaned it up. Though it can happen anywhere, it is easy to pretend it won’t. I seriously will never in my life understand hating another person so much that your actions put other people’s lives in danger.
After hearing the same question over and over from friends and family — “Why aren’t you married yet?” — art director Suzanne Heintz got tired of it and set out to do something about it. She got herself a little family…of mannequins.
Over the course of 14 years and 10,000 miles of travel, she took her fake family everywhere and took all kinds of “family” pictures….
I loved the comment of Laura:
She’s underlining the fact that for many people, a family seems to be little better than a trophy or badge to prove that someone has succeeded at fulfilling society’s expectations of them. How many families look great in photographs but are actually empty inside? The point is not to condemn family life, but to refuse to accept that a good life is simply one that looks good to other people.
Just finished the latest Castle episode.
That was so intense. And brilliant. Gah, I’m going to go watch it again.
