Anderson Cooper saving a boy in Haiti during a shooting. A slab of concrete was dropped of the boys head.
Anderson fucking Cooper, everyone.
Some journalists like to be strictly observers. they don’t intervene, they don’t participate. they just document what they see, even if what they see is terrible. But the way I see it, journalists don’t exist in a vacuum. They are human beings, living and working in a very human environment. And that humanity is essential in relating to their stories. When you lose your humanity, you lose any kind of journalistic integrity you have left.

And Littlefoot knew for certain that he was alone.
#second saddest scene in the movie #honestly i found this movie to be way sadder than say the lion king or bambi #because of this scene and the ones around it #while the other two movies just kind of glanced over the child’s reaction to their parent’s death #the land before time spends quite a lot of time focusing on littlefoot right after his mother died #and how much he struggled with the loss #and it’s extremely painful to watch as this small child #goes through the different phases of grief #blaming his mother #not eating #being in down right denial #and then this scene #this freaking scene #when he finally realizes and accepts that she is gone for good #it is much more powerful than any scene in the lion king or bambi #littlefoot’s mother is THE saddest death in animated movies for me#and i will fight you over this #because while the death itself is quite sad #it’s the aftermath that makes it memorable (via benvoliotheorphan)
Bambi and Lion King immediately tried to distract children from the deaths of the parents. Bambi had the sweet little birds come flying in, and singers coming in to sing about them. Lion King, while they showed Simba running away, Scar ascending the throne, we can’t focus on that TOO much so let’s throw in a wacky, zany song by two new characters who sing about forgetting your worries! No, quick, jingle the shiny keys in the sad child’s face before they get too sad about the dead characters!
But Don Bluth and his team brought a movie that showed actual stages of grief with this little dinosaur and it is powerful to this day.
