shout out to all the people who aren’t for whatever reason going out with friends to celebrate the new year, to those who are staying in, to those who won’t be seeing fireworks. i hope you have a lovely new year’s eve anyway.
May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art – write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.
assailant believed to have been dressed in a Santa Claus costume opened
fire at a nightclub in Istanbul during New Year’s celebrations
Saturday, killing at least 35 people and wounding 40 others in what the
province’s governor described as a terror attack.
Vasip Sahin said the attacker, armed with a long-barreled weapon,
killed a policeman and a civilian outside the club before entering and
firing on people partying inside. He did not say who may have carried
out the attack. “Unfortunately (he) rained bullets in a very cruel
and merciless way on innocent people who were there to celebrate New
Year’s and have fun,” Sahin told reporters. (AP)
