The World Is Still With Us

The World Is Still With Us

For a much-needed break from the Trump apocalypse, we offer this year's World Press Photo winners. The controversial choice for photo of the year was an AP image of the assassination of Russia's ambassador to Turkey that judges felt explosively expressed "the hatred of our times." But there is much else. Many of the winning images feature distraught refugees seeking safety: There is fear, grace, anguish - above all, humanity, persisting.

With the exception of the Sports image, the other seven Photos in this piece impart more Actual News, in their immediate Visual Eloquence, than my hometown paper, NY's Newsday, provides in a year.

Who Stands for the Innocents?

In the Vulgarity that is Trump and Associates, who Stands for the Innocence of the Weak?

Who protects those who simply want Life without Deadly Oppression,
who simply want to be left alone and reach the safety of Hearth and Home.

The news is filled with the disgusting grasping of power, anyone in the way is fodder to be
crushed as they consume and discard, grasp again, consume and discard. Never enough.
