i know a lot of people who live or are from the middle east, or are born into families that are from the middle east as well as i personally have a lot of family in the middle east and LET ME TELL YOU they are some of the most loving, kind, understanding, funny, loyal, and peaceful people i know. there are many smaller groups in these countries that are doing truly evil things and it is really sad that they are representing all of these amazing people over there in such a horrible way. so many want peace. i look at my dad whenever we hear about more awful stories about war and destruction and violence over there and he just looks so tired and sad. the majority of the people want to live a happy and peaceful life with their family and friends and i wish more than anything that they can have that one day. and i hope that the world can see how incredible the middle east population is, and how strong they are to live through all of this and to still try and find happiness, instead of focusing on the people who are creating war and terror and miserable lives for everyone else. just, don’t judge every middle eastern person you may see. don’t call them a terrorist. i see it happen way too often.

that is all.

"A bookshelf is like a framed collage. Every book is a photograph; every spine tells a story. Friends you left behind, enemies you’d long forgotten, places you’d once visited. This is why I keep my books."

"Words! Mere words! How terrible they were! How clear, and vivid, and cruel! One could not escape from them. And yet what a subtle magic there was in them! They seemed to be able to give a plastic form to formless things, and to have a music of their own as sweet as that of voil or of lute. Mere words! Was there anything so real as words?"

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

"Stress is basically a disconnection from the earth, a forgetting of the breath. Stress is an ignorant state. It believes that everything is an emergency. Nothing is that important. Just lie down."
