Hello, daily dealer. Hello, hipster hopper. Hello, Pulitzer Prize-errr?
What in the bomb-locking-hell is a Pulitzer Prize?
And I quote from the dictionary of unforgotten facts, “The Pulitzer Prize is the award given to an individual who has produced exceptional achievement in print or online journalism, literature, and musical composition.
Pulitzer Prize awards are given to one winner across twenty-one categories and voila: What’s-her-face from what’s-its-media wins for scoring the best god damn (excuse my blasphemy) piece of the year!
Just like today’s person of the day: Afghan photographer Massoud Hossaini, whose photo caught a little girl’s reaction to a suicide bombing.
You are now staring at the number one photo in Journalism today.
The photo above illustrates Tarana Akbari, one of the few strong but extremely young survivors in a suicide bombing homicide that killed more than 70 people; including Akbari’s family who came to visit for Ashura.
Although the award is a life accomplishment, the circumstances unto which it was won is not.
Nonetheless, Pulitzer Prize winner Hossaini and his piece brings awareness to the unfortunate injustices happening on the other side to the world; opposite to 9-5 Western routine.
