State of the obvious.

So there’s feature on twitter where it autoplays videos in your feed on mute.

I was scrolling through to pass time and one shows kids after a bombing in Hass. You see these kids urgently rushed to a van to be taken away. They’re crying, they’re calling out. It’s on mute for me.

Maybe that’s why I noticed this, of all things: missing teeth. The boy opens his mouth and I see he’s got that mark of childhood, the tooth gaps. maybe he’s in kindergarten like my daughter. Maybe the girl with the missing front tooth is in second grade, like my son.

Missing teeth is universal. every kid on earth loses their teeth.

But I don’t need to state the obvious… right?
