Mindset: Watching television is distasteful to us
By: Christina Sarich
Watching television or most of main stream media, including newspapers and many Hollywood movies is very distasteful to us. The mindset that creates much, but not all, of the programming on television and in cinema is abhorrent. It makes people into commodities and promotes violence. It reduces our intelligence and numbs our natural empathetic response to someone in pain.
“We watch so many movies that pictures we see from Gaza are almost the same concept, just a dead body behind a screen”
By: Mohammed Zeyara
“People are desensitized to pictures from Gaza’s massacres now.” Wait what? Allow me to say something. Growing up in the west, the only massacres we’ve seen are massacres in movies. We watch so many movies that pictures we see from Gaza are almost the same concept, just a dead body behind a screen. So we didn’t just get desensitized, most of us have always been desensitized. To the people who keep telling me do not share. I know and understand where you’re coming from, and I will try to take your advice. Please understand I’m currently fighting between my emotions and my professionalism. But I grew up across the street from Al-Shifa Hospital. The sirens of the ambulances used to wake us up almost every morning. My friends and I used to always play in Al-Shifa’s garden. And we’ve witnessed all these images in real life. And when you witness these things in real life, it’s a total different story than just a picture. After seeing bodies come through the doors of al-shifa doors, then I would go home to check the news, I saw absolutely nothing. The news always hid the killings in Gaza just like they are hiding many oppressions happening now in Syria, Burma and Pakistan. So I got angry, and I still am. I promised to show the world what the eyes of Gaza see everyday. Because when you see the pictures online, there is a whole story behind the picture, not just a dead body. There was love, happiness, compassion, dreams, goals that were killed when the soul left that body. Do not just look at how horrible the picture looks, the concept is far more greater than that.
I hope you understand.
