When you open an exam paper and can’t even answer the first question
nothing says hope quite like flowers growing through the cracks in concrete
"Don’t name your daughter Sumayyah if you’re not willing to let her make sacrifices for her beliefs. Don’t name your daughter Aisha if you’re going to tell her she can’t learn and become a scholar. Don’t name your daughter Nusaybah if you don’t want her to fight tooth and nail for what she believes in. Don’t name your daughter Maryam if you don’t expect greatness of character from her. Don’t name your daughter Aasiya if you’re not willing to let her be a part of the fight against oppressors."
Beautiful speech, Lupita!

because it doesn’t sit right with the “we’re bombing savages” notion.
Among many other stupid reasons, this probably doesn’t garner much media attention because the parallels with the drone strikes we authorize are way too easy and it’s so much easier to kill thousands of people if they don’t have faces and homes and toys and feelings
