Absolute recognition and appreciation for the Palestinian, Syrian, Kurdish and other women in the Middle East who willingly put their lives on the line and risk their safety fighting fascism, occupation, and Western imperialism. These are your true heroes. Not women who serve in the IDF, not women who serve in the US army, and definitely not women who serve in armies that serve Western interests.
Crying is not a weakness. Crying is the biggest act of strength imaginibale. It shows a softness of the heart. It demonstrates a flame of decency otherwise extinguished in this wholly immoral world. To cry means you feel. To cry means you hurt. Crying allows you to acknowledge the errors of your ways, and Allah swt loves it. To cry allows you to express care for someone other than yourself. To cry is the noblest of emotions. Never lose that characteristic. Never let the world harden your heart. Don’t let the injustices of this world harden your soul. Cry.
