"the future belongs to the few of us still willing to get our hands dirty"
But I also knew that one day, I would grow up. One day, I would be twenty, or thirty, or forty, even fifty and sixty and seventy and eighty and maybe even one hundred years old. And all those years were mine, they belonged to nobody but me. So even if I was unhappy now, it could all change tomorrow. Maybe I didn’t even need to jump off the cliff to experience that kind of freedom. Maybe the fact that I knew such a freedom existed in the world meant that I could someday find it.

We always see our worst selves. Our most vulnerable selves. We need someone else to get close enough to tell us we’re wrong. Someone we trust.

*blogs the pain away*

Our concern, our empathy, our compassion has to be universal; it can not be selective, it can not be self-serving. We have to stand up for freedom and human rights everywhere, regardless of whether the victims happen to be Sunni or Shi’a, or for that matter Christian, Jewish, Hindu or Atheist.
