"If Gaza were the United States, the toll would be 235,252 dead, and 1,171,939. In 23 days.
That’s equal to 1.4 million casualties. In 23 days.

"In Ukraine, they say that every man must do three things to fulfill his duty: plant a tree, have a child, and build a house. I planted a tree in grade school, I had a daughter fourteen years ago, but with how the economy has been, I’m starting to fear that I’ll never have the money to build a house." "What was the happiest moment you ever spent with your daughter?" "I taught her to walk on a small playground near our house. I’d hold onto her hands and walk her around slowly. She was laughing so hard, and she was making noises the entire time, I could sense she was trying to tell me something." "What do you think she was trying to tell you?" "Just how happy she was to be there with me."

For me, everything works well together. The composition with triple use of the ‘n’, the play of scale with the author’s name and the ‘i’ nested within the large characters, and the blackletter typeface. My only reservation is the detailed loop on the ‘a’ which is a little distracting when combined with the scale of smaller type. I’d have been tempted to redraw the top of it.
