An Execution

How would you feel during the moments before your execution? What would you do? Would you stare into the crowd with a contorted look on your face? Would you lay your head on the executioner’s shoulder?

Two Iranian men about to be executed

This makes me nauseous. Nauseous that two asinine young men would be publicly executed for a non-lethal robbery. Nauseous that two rich young men would never find themselves in the same place. Nauseous at how easily images like this slither into our lives.

Nauseous from empathy.
