I come from refugees on both sides of my family. My father worked for the UN and his father was the UN Ambassador and then on my mother’s side, my grandmother was in the Holocaust. Seeing so many people look like me, I could have easily been one of them. The biggest surprise to me was that I was expecting to see these people that were completely broken—people that had lost everything and were hopeless. But instead I saw these people that were resilient. I kind of want to put my eyes into other people and have them see what I’ve seen. I remember meeting this nurse back in Syria, if there’s people that are in their intensive caravans that can’t get to one of the six medical centers, he goes from tent to tent helping them and pulling out shrapnel in the children.(x)

What men don’t understand is that women are FIERCELY PROTECTIVE of underage girls because we remember when we were young and some adult man made us uncomfortable or manipulated us or was inappropriate with us and we were powerless.
#teenage girls are so important #all young girls are so important #i will kill a thousand men to protect young girls #with my bare hands
The US Government: We're not going to make it federally mandatory for people to get paid a wage they can actually live off of
The US Government: If people want to make a living, they'll just have to work 16+ hours a day
The US Government: And if their kids end up disenfranchised because of a lack of parental involvement, well that's not our problem
The US Government: In fact, what is our problem is creating a system that will funnel these disenfranchised youth into our prison system so they can work for corporations (that promise us money) for damn near free
The US Government: If they don't want to fall victim to this system, then they can seek higher education
The US Government: Except such an education will be inaccessible to most disenfranchised people and skewed in favor of the financially stable and white people
The US Government: And we're not going to make intervention programs like sex education and conflict resolution federally mandatory, because that's the parent's job
The US Government: The parent who is working 16 hours a day
