Today marks 14 years since Muhammad Al-Durrah, the 12 year old Palestinian boy was killed by Israeli forces as his father tried to shield him.

For 45 minutes Israeli forces fired as Jammal Al-Durrah tried to shield his son shouting “Don’t shoot” before they were both eventually shot, Muhammad fatally. A paramedic was killed and another wounded whilst trying to assist them.

I remember watching this on television as an 8 year old. The words “Mat el walad” or the boy is dead screamed by people surrounding them still resonate in my ears.

Today, Muhammad would have been 25.
We will never forget.

What I love about social justice white people

sage-kun:

juxtapiration:

is every time my friend gets stop to be told off by some white person, very rudely, how his tattoo of a dreamcatcher is racist and insensitive to the Native American people and should removed/apologize/be ashamed.

He is Native American and they confuse him for Mexican every time, and he just states “But I got this at the reservation I lived in for 15 YEARS.” and proceeds to falsely place a curse of his ancestors on them.

Certain plants can purify the air taking out toxins or bad or stale air, these are some wonderful plants to keep around the home.1. Bamboo Palm: It removes formaldahyde and is also said to act as a natural humidifier.2. Snake Plant: It absorb nitrogen oxides and formaldahyde.3. Areca Palm: One of the best air purifying plants for general air cleanliness.4. Spider Plant: Great indoor plant for removing carbon monoxide and other toxins or impurities. Spider plants are one of three plants NASA deems best at removing formaldahyde from the air.5. Peace Lily: Peace lilies could be called the “clean-all.” They’re often placed in bathrooms or laundry rooms because they’re known for removing mold spores. Also know to remove formaldahyde and trichloroethylene.6. Gerbera Daisy: Not only do these gorgeous flowers remove benzene from the air, they’re known to improve sleep by absorbing carbon dioxide and giving off more oxygen over night.

"I think all the pressure that I put on myself has been paralyzing. When I graduated from high school, a lot of people wrote in my yearbook: ‘You’re going to do great things,’ or ‘I know you’re going to make it big.’ I realized recently that with all the time I spent trying to figure out what my ‘big thing’ was going to be, I passed over a lot of small things that could have really added up. The moment I became content with taking small steps, I started moving forward again."
