to understand
benefits of detachment

a child playing
in a tournament
sobs
while having a bad game
(feeling the wrongness of it all)

i know no place is perfect
but watching NZ
respond to the attack on their muslim population
(a tiny percentage of the overall number)
brings joy

* ardern wears hijab
* automatic weapons ban
* human wall around mosque
* arabic ("sala(a)m") on front page of christchurch newspaper

there must be parts of the world where humanity strives to nurture itself (as opposed to 'murica where the society is set up to support rich white men at the expense of everytone else)
