Reasoning with Madness
"This is a barbaric yawp, and it will be sounded over the roofs of the world."
"I woke this morning deeply disturbed by the news from Paris, but more amazed by the attention it received on social media. I understand Paris is a beloved and familiar space for a lot of people, but it troubled me that Beirut, a city my father grew up in, had received so little attention after the horrific bombings two days earlier. It also troubled me that Baghdad, a place I have absolutely no connection with, received even less attention after the senseless bombing that took place there last week. Worst of all, I found the understanding of the refugee crisis skewed and simplistic. If you've been following the journeys of the people leaving their homes around the world right now, perhaps you'll understand why the words Syrian Refugee Crisis are just as devastating as Pray For Paris. It's time to pray for humanity. It is time to make all places beloved. It's time to pray for the world." - Karuna Ezara Parikh
