Staring Into Death

Little Green Footballs has posted a picture of the female bomber in Israel. Look at her eyes. There is something eerily distant there. A void, a want of meaning, something . . . I don’t know what. It may be just because it is a picture, but many pictures convey some sort of emotion. This conveys nothing but the surrendered eyes of a someone who has found meaning only in death.

It’s sad.
