Please do not post pictures of our dead, dying or severely injured brothers and sisters in Palestine. It is extremely dehumanizing, and ineffective as people grow desensitized to the images. Most of the photos of the victims of the attacks are taken without consent. Although we must bring attention to the atrocities occurring, it is perhaps just as important if not more to maintain the human dignity of our brothers and sisters.
“When someone is crying, of course, the noble thing to do is to comfort them. But if someone is trying to hide their tears, it may also be noble to pretend you do not notice them.”—Lemony Snicket, Horseradish (via wordsnquotes)
“My heart didn’t break into a thousand pieces after he left. Instead, I realized all the things he didn’t do. He didn’t want to hear my stories. He didn’t ask me questions. He didn’t smile when I was talking to him. He didn’t hug me out of the blue to make me feel good. His hugs were always a preamble to something else and after he was gone, I wondered if he ever knew me at all.”—Diane Les Becquets (via wordsthat-speak)
