A Human Being Has Been Shot

The details are still being sorted out. But a human being has been shot for crossing a line. He crossed a line that for him was from an impossible life to a possible life. But to the shooter, it was a border and it was illegal to cross.

It might have happened in the UK. There it might have been a Bulgarian shot.

It happened in Bulgaria. Bad luck for Bulgaria. Because it might have happened anywhere in Europe so pointing fingers is both pointless and disingenuous.


And the worst part is that it is a surprise only that it hasn’t happened before. Because the sole purpose of borders is to divide “us” from “them.” Who’s in and who’s out. “Us” don’t want “Them” to cross the line.

We grieve.
