DEATH, WAR, AND TERRORISM.

Swiss sculptor Alberto Giacometti's Man Pointing gesticulates ominously. Emaciated, skeletal and tormented, it is an artistic expression of humankind's unending march toward suffering and annihilation. Like the sculptor's gaunt and unnaturally elongated figure, each and every one of us has now become a riveted observer and sometimes, a casualty. Today, we are all threatened by ecstatic sacrificial killings that masquerade as “national liberation,” “self-determination,” or any other self-justifying forms of “resistance.”
