fotojournalismus:

Here is a quick friendly reminder (or correction you may say):
This is an old photo from 2009. 
I saw this going around on the internet lately, uncredited and misleadingly captioned. Not going to name but even some NGOs and news sites share this as if it was taken recently in the Gaza Strip during Israel’s latest so-called ‘Operation Protective Edge’. However, as you might find after a little research, this picture was taken in Jabalia in the northern Gaza Strip in 2009. Just few months after Israel’s then 22-day ‘Operation Cast Lead' (December 27- January 18).
Here is its caption: “A Palestinian boy plays with a pink balloon in the rubble of his house, which was destroyed during Israel’s 22-day ‘Operation Cast Lead’ [2008], in Jabalia, in the northern Gaza Strip, on April 10. [2009]”
Also, another thing is its photographer — either no name given or completely false name given. But, actually, it was taken by Ashraf Amra/APA Images.
But does it really matter? For credibility, yes, I think. Other than that, not really. Nothing has changed a lot, except for the names of stolen Palestinian lives and of Israeli military operations. 
What has happened to this little boy with a pink balloon? I can’t help but think where he is now, if he is still alive.

Sometimes the feelings inside of me get messy like dirt. And I like to clean things. Pretend the dirt is the feelings. This floor is my mind. That is called coping. Suzanna Warrenn (Crazy Eyes), Orange is the New Black (via larmoyante)

Her skin is soft
like freshly born
‘hellos’; I am so
devastatingly
used to bodies
that scream for
‘goodbyes’.
