New Yorgi inimesed

Jälgin Facebookis sellist gruppi nagu Humans of New York, mis on ühe mehe projekt pildistada inimesi tema kodulinnas ja jagada nende lugusid. Nii lihtne, aga nii geniaalne. Paljud lood on väga inspireerivad või mõtlema panevad.

Minu üheks lemmikuimaks on sellle härrasmehe mõte.

“I’ve been a deep believer my whole life. 18 years as a Southern Baptist. More than 40 years as a mainline Protestant. I’m an ordained pastor. But it’s just stopped making sense to me. You see people doing terrible things in the name of religion, and you think: ‘Those people believe just as strongly as I do. They’re just as convinced as I am.’ And it just doesn’t make sense anymore. It doesn’t make sense to believe in a God that dabbles in people’s lives. If a plane crashes, and one person survives, everyone thanks God. They say: ‘God had a purpose for that person. God saved her for a reason!’ Do we not realize how cruel that is? Do we not realize how cruel it is to say that if God had a purpose for that person, he also had a purpose in killing everyone else on that plane? And a purpose in starving millions of children? A purpose in slavery and genocide? For every time you say that there’s a purpose behind one person’s success, you invalidate billions of people. You say there is a purpose to their suffering. And that’s just cruel.”

See on nii ilusalt, aga valusalt öeldud. Ja ma nõustun temaga. Aga nõustumine ei olegi oluline, tähtis on see, et temale läheb see korda, see on killuke ühe mehe loost ja samas osa paljudest teistest lugudest.

Minu teine lemmik on rõõmsamat sorti.

“Speak slowly, we’re German.””What’s your favorite thing about her?””…. she’s there.””When did you most appreciate her being there?” He made a slightly puzzled expression, then turned to his wife and started speaking in German. She looked up at the sky for a second, then said: “He is island in my life.”

Kogu situatsioon on minu peas nii elavalt selge, naise näoilme ja nende kehakeel, mis peegeldab head suhet. Minul on ka minu saar.

Mõelge, mida ütleksite teie, kui teie käest küsiks keegi, milline on olnud teie kõige ilusam hetk. Aga mis on teie kõige suurem katsumus? Milline on teie lugu? Mina valmistan vaikselt oma kõnet, juhul kui kunagi New Yorgis seda fotograafi kohtama peaksin, maailm on ju väike.
