Take a break from the fandoms and take a moment to read this:

Farah Baker, a 16 year old teen living in the Gaza Strip, has been tweeting and posting on social media sites of the various indiscriminant bombings being committed by Israeli forces, most recently very violent shelling near Al-Shifa hospital by her.

In her countless tweets and numerous posts on both Twitter and Instagram, she documents live strikes using photos and videos to show her followers the severity of the situation her and thousands like her are going through every day. @farah_gazan has gone viral, spiking from 21k to 76k followers on twitter in a span of 24 hours and climbing to 300+ in a matter of hours on Instagram.

Personally, I felt like I was reading something off the diary of Anne Frank. And who knows? Our children might be reading this and asking us why we didn’t stop her from dying just like we did to our grandparents.

The tweets are heartbreaking and the videos are breathtaking. She needs your support. Let her know you stand by her. Follow her on twitter and Instagram and maybe somehow you can change history.

Wood And Metal Unite In Striking Furniture By Hilla Shamia 

Hilla Shamia, an ingenious artist and designer, creates beautiful one-of-a-kind wood and aluminum desks and stools using a unique method that marries cold aluminum and beautiful pieces of wood.

To create these unprecedented pieces, Shamia poured molten aluminum onto logs of raw cypress and eucalyptus that have been cut lengthwise. The burning of the molten aluminum on the surface of the raw wooden log creates a beautiful black layer of carbon that creates a boundary between the cold silvery color of the aluminum and the wood’s beautiful natural colors and forms. Because the aluminum is molten, it runs into every crack and crevice of the wood, creating a strong bond and a striking appearance.

Veganism is not about how easy or hard it is for you. It’s about every animal’s right not to be used as a slave.

How is this not Germany, Poland, before the ovens? There was a systematic strategy then of massive displacements and forced marches…forced disease…forced blockades of food and medicine …encircled ghettos…people think it all began with the ovens but it did not. It began exactly like this. Only slower.
