Ik zag je vandaag in de weerspiegeling
van een laptopscherm,
jij zag mij ook.
Je keek snel weg,
en ik ook.
Plots was college niet meer zo saai.
“THIS IS NOT ABOUT CLOTHES. THIS IS NOT ABOUT HIGH FASHION. THIS IS ABOUT BLACK T SHIRTS AND DRUGS.”
Photographer Taslima Akhter captured the above image following the recent factory collapse in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
The image documents two workers, embraced, in the factory rubble. Sadly, the two did not recover from the incident.
Here’s what Taslima had to say:
“This image, while deeply disturbing, is also hauntingly beautiful. An embrace in death, its tenderness rises above the rubble to touch us where we are most vulnerable.
By making it personal, it refuses to let go. This is a photograph that will torment us in our dreams. Quietly it tells us. Never again.”
Is this what love looks like? Thanks to Mason for this!
Love shouldn’t feel hopeless, because it’s never is. In love, a pair can be down, but never knocked out. Love should make all things possible, even if they aren’t necessarily looking good today. If I love you and you love me,we will prevail – but if we don’t, we won’t. Love shouldn’t feel like we won’t.

-Three Horses by Edward S.Curtis,C1905.
May the stars carry your sadness away,
May the flowers fill your heart with beauty,
May hope forever wipe away your tears,
And, above all, may silence make you strong.
