formyummah:

Why do people insist on saying things like, “While you’re busy in Gaza, Iraq is also suffering” or “No one cares about Syria because it’s not in Gaza”

We care about all our ummah, and it’s unfortunate that people think that we don’t. Every single life matters, no matter what country they’re from. Don’t belittle any tragedy and don’t compare them, raise awareness positively please.

George Takei describes the moment when he and his family were sent to an internment camp.

"Another scene I remember now as an adult is every morning at school we started the day with the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag…there was the American flag flying over the camp but I could also see the barbed wire fence and the sentry towers pointing at us from my schoolhouse window as I recited the words ‘With liberty and justice for all’." - George Takei, The Daily Show (July 24, 2014).
