A good book is the key to living a fruitful life. #KnowledgeIsPower. ✨
I am currently reading #MuslimGirl and I cannot get enough of it.
#AmaniAlKhatahtbeh gives us an inside, scary, and inspirational look into her reality as a Muslim child and woman. ✨
While, I don't identify as #Muslim, I understand her experiences and have seen shitty things happen to our Muslim brothers and sisters firsthand. ✨
While, living in Stony Point, NY, my Muslim brothers and sisters and I had trash thrown on us and racial and antiMuslim phrases constantly yelled at us.
We were over living in that city. However, that never stopped us from being Black, Brown, and Muslim, which made me proud and happy to continue our fellowship. We walked proudly in our identities as we struggled to comprehend everything that was happening in our "home" city. This mess went on for months. ✨
After my fellowship, I was happy to move back to Portland, Or... Today, I am not sure if there is any place that is safe for "marginalized communities."
Every human being LGBTQIA, black, brown, differently abled, fat, welfare recipient, renter, "uneducated," single parent, and the list could go on and on shouldn't be a target for societies/humans' insecurities and hatred. We all want to belong. Give us our BASIC rights to survive. ✨
