I’d never inhaled tear gas before, and I had a good half hour that felt like both eternity and as well the end of my life. Your chest and eyes and face burn so much it feels like blood, and you can hardly breathe. Your eyes seem to spurt tears, and you wipe them with your hands and expect to look down and find them red, bloody. But you can’t—you can barely open your eyes to see.
