Our worth as women is not dependent on whether we are sexual or not. As a matter of fact, it is nobody's business what you do sexually.

PALESTINE FROM MY EYES by Shahd Abusalama
Where is humanity? Where are the people of conscience around the world? Our people in Gaza are being massacred, under genocide operation. #Israel doesn’t differentiate between ages. After many families were massacred including Al-Batsh, Hamad, Ghannam, Al-Haj. This time many families at once were massacred in Al-Shijaeyya.
The families there refused to evacuate their houses, remain dignified in their homes, and reject Israel’s attempt to make them homeless and humiliated with other 60 thousands Palestinians who filled UNRWA schools. Israel’s reaction to people’s steadfastness was randomly shelling their houses with artillery shells, tanks fire and F16 missiles towards the families’ houses who held in between its walls only children, women and elderlies. The Israeli Occupation Forces destroyed houses upon its inhabitants. People’s bodies were buried under the rubble for hours. Israel panned ambulances and media to to reach them, rescue them and let the cries of massacred be heard. In an attempt to veil these crimes Israel committed against the innocent inhabitants of Al-Shijaeyya, they prevented media from being there to document the massacre and let the world be a witness of it.
Shahd Abusalama, 22, is a #Palestinian artist, a blogger and an English literature graduate living in Gaza City, Palestine. She employs her talents for writing and drawing to portray her identity as a Palestinian and to make the voice of the #oppressed people of Palestine heard. English has been the bridge that has connected her to the outside world. She is interested in conveying the images, experience and emotions of the Palestinian people as well as their pain, resilience and hopes. Being a daughter of a former Palestinian prisoner who spent 15 years in Israel's prisons has been the primary source of inspiration for her work fighting the ongoing #injustice that faces her people every day. Some of her other passions are singing, drama, traditional Palestinian embroidery and Dabka, a form of traditional Palestinian dance.

We're so busy bringing each other down, when we should be joining together in all our beautiful differences, lifting each other up. #unity #yesallwomen #feminism #sisterhood #love ✊✊❤️❤️
If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.

A once-homeless street dog has been caught on video risking life and limb to feed her extended animal family in a Brazilian junkyard.
Lilica has spent the last three years traveling four miles down dark, dangerous roads each night to the home of animal lover Lucia, who gives the dog a bag of food.
The brilliant and selfless pooch then turns around and travels back to her São Carlos junkyard, where a menagerie of another dog, a cat, a mule, and several chickens dig in with their little hearts full of gratitude.
