The child who mistook a camera for a machine gun
Quote:On March 25, Gaza-based photojournalist Nadia Abu Shaban tweeted a picture of a small Syrian child holding his hands above his head with a look of pure fear in his innocent, brown eyes.

The young boy, Adi Hudea was just four years old when the photo was taken and had mistaken the photographer’s camera for a machine gun.

[...]

‘His face suddenly drops. He squeezes his bottom lip between his teeth and gently lifts up his hands. Where he remains like that without a word. It is not exactly easy to cheer up the child who thought the camera was a machine gun about to strike him. Adi Hudea, only four years old, lost his father in the Hama bombing. He went to Camp Atmen on the border of Syria/Turkey with his very nervous mother and three siblings.’

It doesn't feel right to *like* this.

It's just sad. Sad


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

It's very sad to see that the child's mind already got accustomed to that kind of logic. Undecided

RE: The child who mistook a camera for a machine gun
A strange phenomenon we encountered was kind of the opposite in a way. Point a rifle at someone and they don't care. Pull out the Beretta, and suddenly everyone is shitting bricks. Just about every household has an AK, so there's no shock factor. Handguns getting drawn, on the other hand, bring up memories of crooked officers and invading Soviets who wouldn't hesitate to execute them.
