In 1915 Turks and kurds killed millions of Assyrians, Greeks and Armenians, a genocide against Christians. Now, 99 years later, the same thing is happening. ISIS terrorists are killing, raping and torturing Assyrian Christians in Iraq, where we Assyrians are the original population. Assyrians in Nineveh are given three options, 1. Pay a ridiculous amount of money in tax, 2. Convert to Islam or 3. Die. Are we going to let this happen? Is humanity going to let this happen? For the first time in over 2000 years there are no Assyrians in Nineveh (now called mosul), for the first time in 2000 years there is no mass in the churches in Nineveh. Is the world going let this happen, let terrorists wipe the original people out of their own country? Is this what humanity has come to?

Pisces Oxymoron

zodiac-oasis:

It is a common misconception than Pisces are strictly humanitarian…they are not…they empathize with evil just as easily as they empathize with good. In fact, many believe that both poles are necessary for the sake of balance in the world. They can be genuinely infatuated by any type of person,…

whenever my mom asks me how I can withstand my room being so messy all the time I have to remind her that I’m a pisces. I’m a fish! We don’t mind swimming around in our own filth.

Re-watching City of God (one of my all-time favourite films), and I’m struck again by this fraction of a scene. Benny’s not a perfect guy. He’s lived a terrible life, albeit in large part shaped by his circmstances. But he’s just so perfectly happy in this moment, with his new clothes, dancing to James Brown, being the man he always wanted to be in that one moment. You know it can’t last, but it’s a reminder that they’re ultimately just children and it’s impossible to not want this for him.
