One day, the world will look back and be haunted by the fact it did nothing to stop the Gaza massacre, as what it did to the Nazi holocaust.Angel Pakeigucci (via mysharona1987)
This is a great piece from New Yorker written by Rashid Khalidi, which I think is worth reading, and take it as an answer to your question please.
"When you imprison 1.8 million people in a hundred and forty square miles, about a third of the area of New York City, with no control of borders, almost no access to the sea for fishermen, no real way in or out, and with drones buzzing overhead night and day… eventually, the ghetto will fight back. It was true in Soweto and Belfast, and it is true in Gaza. We might not like Hamas or some of its methods, but that is not the same as accepting the proposition that Palestinians should supinely accept the denial of their right to exist as a free people in their ancestral homeland."

I think some people are annoyed by the long “essays” I text them when they feel down.. I could just simply say “Feel Better”, but I always want to do more than just listen..
I hope that they’ll feel better with some words of encouragement, but words could do so much.
Maybe because they think what I say is bunch of idealistic crap or think it’s a cliché talk…?
But I hope somewhere they feel touched that someone was willing to listen to their problems and wants to give an advice…
Maybe it’s time I stop trying to be the “counselor”. I feel like a therapist anyway…
Morning my fellow pre-meds!
I know our pre-med lives can very stressful and we almost make anytime to give ourselves some R&R. One of the best tips that I was given recently is to do some yoga to calm my mind and increase focus- especially for my upcoming MCAT exam.
So, if you can spare 10 minutes of your time today I recommend that you do “Yoga when studying for Exams”.
