#it is also the ‘i have a live laugh love decoration somewhere in my house’#’i have a child named caedyn’


#Wall decals about bible verses will class up any kitchen #You should come to my Thirty-One party

I can’t stop. There are too many:
#I’m the best mom on this field trip and everyone knows it #Have you read Eat, Pray, Love? #Let’s get lattes after Zumba! #Gluten causes Autism #I will have him pulled out of your class #Oh shoot, I forgot I volunteered to bring brownies to faith group tonight #We don’t let him watch more than one hour of TV a day #Stick figure family window sticker #(whispers behind hand) you’ve got to read 50 Shades of Grey
Forgive me. I am a mother, and I walk among these women every day. I have adopted their ways as a form of camouflage.

Cristo - El Masih - Abdel Halim Hafez - المسيح - عبد الحليم حافظ(via Asadzidan)

So here’s something interesting I’d never seen before: An Egyptian song about Palestine, translated and subtitled in Spanish by an Argentinian. Huh. I know there are a lot of Arabs in Argentina, primarily from Lebanon and Syria (Fairuz and Wadih El Safi both performed in Latin America in the 1950s), but this is the first time I’ve seen something like this. Usually the Arabic songs go untranslated because they’re mostly popular with Hispanics of Arab descent anyway, or they’ll get translated only if they’re religious songs, e.g., for the new Copts of Mexico or Bolivia, or the neophyte Muslims in places like Argentina or Chile. So this is certainly something else.

For those of you who can’t speak Spanish or Arabic, this song is not really religious, despite the title and video picture. Abdel Halim Hafez was an Egyptian Muslim singer, but he sang this song to connect the suffering of Jesus as recorded in the Christian gospels (which is absent from the Islamic narrative about Jesus) to the suffering of Palestine at the hands of the Israelis. He sings at one point that Jerusalem is suffering just as Jesus did back in those days.

On the morning of September 4, 1957, fifteen-year-old Dorothy Counts set out on a harrowing path toward Harding High, where-as the first African American to attend the all-white school – she was greeted by a jeering swarm of boys who spat, threw trash, and yelled epithets at her as she entered the building.

Charlotte Observer photographer Don Sturkey captured the ugly incident on film, and in the days that followed, the searing image appeared not just in the local paper but in newspapers around the world.

People everywhere were transfixed by the girl in the photograph who stood tall, her five-foot-ten-inch frame towering nobly above the mob that trailed her. There, in black and white, was evidence of the brutality of racism, a sinister force that had led children to torment another child while adults stood by. While the images display a lot of evils: prejudice, ignorance, racism, sexism, inequality, it also captures true strength, determination, courage and inspiration.

Here she is, age 70, still absolutely elegant and poised.

she deserves to be re-blogged. 

she’s so goddamned inspirational

this makes me want to cry
