One of the reasons I am so proud to love this show. And so glad that I was introduced to it at such a young age. Is that the show’s morals and values were INCREDIBLY influential on my own.
Moments like this. Repeated over and over and OVER again throughout the series. Where the army and the mass mentality is saying “They’re the enemy, they’re the ones we’re fighting, so they are LESS VALUABLE as humans.” Which is SO FUCKED UP and also SO REALISTIC IT MAKES ME SICK.
and over and over and over and OVER again, the show’s protagonists slap that thinking in the face and say “A life is a life, end of story.”

Powerful portraits of the Liberians who beat Ebola
To help humanize the overwhelming statistics, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer and senior staff photographer at Getty Images, John Moore, visited an Ebola treatment center of the organization, Doctors Without Borders in Paynesville, Liberia. At the treatment center, survivors spoke about the brothers, sisters, husbands and wives they lost due to the disease. They also spoke of recovery, stigmas they continue to face in their villages and renewed hope.
