Heart wrenching knowing the heinousness of what is happening and my inability to feel like I can do anything. But what boggles my mind and troubles me more is the repeat of history and having it repeated by the same people that had it done to them… Except the only difference is we now live in a more transparent world but there is no call for war crimes arrests, no world condemnation against a people that have systematically begun a cleansing of people they don’t even see as humans. In school we were all taught about this very situation happening some 70 years ago, we were taught the atrocities, we were taught how we could never let something so horrible happen again… And here we are standing on the precipice of another genocide, but what happen to all we learned. What happened to all those that taught us and told us we can never let it happen again…
Going back over my favorite Surah that I like to recite and subhanAllah it’s amazing when I really think about the meanings of the verses and what they mean to me. Without knowing Arabic Allah drew my heart to these surahs and only now, really contemplating them, am I in ever growing awe. Every believer has his or her things they struggle with and looking at these ayats I feel more and more like its a conversation. Things I struggle with, Allah has been speaking through these words to me about them and only now, when I’ve really taken a minute to contemplate, does it sink in. A conversation and advising and warning. Alhamdulillah
What the crazy, my son just kicked my hand with some force. Felt like he was doing some muy thai in there.
An unshakeable feeling that something is amiss.
I’ve been called weird more than a few times in my life, and you know what? I’m completely fine with it, in fact I completely embrace it. Life would be so boring if I was normal. There would be so much in life I probably wouldn’t have experienced. It fueled my creativity, pushed me to think differently.
The best part of weird, no ones weird is the same as another’s weird. Weird is unique. So to all my weird counterparts across the internet landscape, cheers and keep I weirding it up.
