Pearls Before Swine:
Banksy & Banksy Forum:
Phan Thi Kim Phúc, Vietnam's Napalm poster-girl in 1972 thanks to Nick Ut (details at The Digital Journalist), I am thankful that she has survived and prospered. See also: Kim Foundation, Anne Bayin.
What does it mean when we say; 'thanks be to God', 'praise the Lord', 'through the grace of God', 'God bless you' ... and the like? It is primarily superstition of course; even people like Leonard Cohen often write G-d, most capitalize it. After superstition comes self-serving - one way and another it is a brag. When all of that has been sifted away and sluffed off, something remains, something else.
