I’m on the train in Queens, New York.
I’m playing Massive Attack’s “Protection” as a form of magic, a ward.
There is no reasoning, no logic, no excuse for what happened in Boston today.
I’m on the train in New York, using 90’s trip hop as a protective spell because I’m afraid.
There were cops and K-9 units on the platform, watching everyone.
But I’m still afraid.
But it’s nothing compared to what is going on in Boston. My thoughts are with the people in Boston.
I play “Protection” as much for you as for myself, and hope that one day the world will be able to move on from such meaningless violence.
The world isn’t as big as we’d like to think it is, there is no room for violence.
