"I’d been studying German for a few years, and I met this woman who gave me the opportunity to go to Germany for a full year. The brochure looked very nice. The program included hikes, volunteer work, singing in church. It was very expensive, but my family thought it would be a great experience for me, so all my relatives chipped in to pay the program fee. I was so excited for months. On the day that I was supposed to leave, I went to the airport, and waited in line to check my baggage. When I got to the front of the line, they told me that my ticket was a forgery. When I tried to call the woman’s phone, it had been disconnected."

New York City Street Stencils Remind Us Where Cars Have Killed Pedestrians

When pedestrian advocacy group Right of Way started drawing chalk body outlines at intersections where cars mowed down New York City pedestrians in the early ’90s, it wanted to send a message to the NYPD and to the city. “To think there was a crime committed here, and then to think about how that’s not normally considered a crime, or a tragedy even,” says Right of Way organizer Keegan Stephan.

In early August of this year, Right of Way revived its old mission. Upon request from the families of victims killed by cars, the organization walked and cycled to the locations of 12 fatal collisions, sprayed an ornate stencil of white, outstretched wings designed by artist Robyn Renee Hasty, and gave space for loved ones to grieve.

It is not an exaggeration to say that Junior Malanda will never, ever live this miss down. It has to be one of the worst — if not the worst of the worst — miss to ever happen in a soccer match. There aren’t words to do it justice, so just watch in awe.

Just…how? The ball was…
