I am a product of a society that does not want me, and my identity is the constant re-imagining of old constructs, living in the border space between who i want to be and who i am... i wish not to (re)cover my past, but heal the wounds to my future

cool and relevant ppt presentation but jsyk, the term “ethnic cleansing” is a gross euphemism for “genocide”.

THIS. Thank you. This isn’t a “conflict,” this isn’t a complex issue. I was discussing it with a friend earlier - if you want to put this into perspective, view it as the modern day creation of the United States. What could only complicate this, is that it’s condoned legally and promoted through state-sponsored programs.

A beautiful gesture from Lebanon - names of Palestinians killed by Israel in the last two weeks were hung on huge banners in Raouché, Beirut during a demonstration against the latest Zionist assault on Gaza, July 22, 2014. Protesters also threw flowers into the sea. Over 600 people have been killed (as of the morning of July 23, 2014), at least 25% of whom were children.

For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.

So collapse.
Crumble.
This is not your destruction.

This is your birth.
