Interference in other’s business and personal life is an invasion of the other’s private space.

I Agree.

Watching someone drowning or ruining their life without being able to interfere is an invasion of all rules of humanity, compassion and care.

I Agree.

Tough dilemma!!

Respecting others’ “mature” decisions and freedom of making choices and embracing life the way they see it right is characteristic of any decent respectable human being, but it becomes a conscience burden when your ethics, beliefs, and principles contradict with those of the people you care about, and find no way to make a point or impose your opinion where, hypothetically, you have no right to do so. (Assuming you’re totally right, but anyway it wouldn’t be a dilemma if you were not 100% sure you were right (even if you’re not!!))

It is indeed extremely hard to find yourself helpless when you know you can help…

I just can’t seem to understand how life is always accused to be unfair when most people seem to be indifferent to all what’s happening around them, throwing away every last bit of compassion, solidarity, charity and humanity they ever had, if they had any…

Poverty, sickness and death in absolute are not unfair. Despite their painful nature, they can all be surmounted and dealt with should we have best of all a healthy surrounding. Life is not unfair; what’s truly unfair is how people treat “life” in every human they encounter, even the closest to them…

What’s unfair is poor kids not being able to go to school because there is not enough space nor enough education in public schools!

What’s unfair is poor people dying because they have no cash and no support!

What’s unfair  is teenage girls being forced to get married to lift some weight off their care takers’ shoulders!

What’s unfair is kids losing one or both parents only to find they lost all their present and future with them!

What’s unfair is 10% of the population having what could have spared the lives and dignities of the other 90%

What is unfair is being indifferent to and totally uninvolved in what could be fair to others!

What is totally unfair is to blame it on life when life should blame it on you!

Think about it!

After sharing with us two of her poems, Raheed Allaf shares with us today some of her interesting and inspiring thoughts, concerns, and advice.

Enjoy! 🙂

Fairytales can come true, in the 21st century too!
 
We all had those moments in front of a TV, hugging our legs with fluffy bunny slippers on, watching a Disney movie in awe. Looking at it wishing you could be that princess, living the adventure, meeting prince charming, and at last, living happily ever after… (check link below for full text)

My heart is rejoicing, my hopes are high

Our youth is shining, the limit is the sky! 🙂

13-year-old half Emarati half Lebanese Maryam Al Qassimi is a wise, sensitive, and proud young lady, whose poetry expresses the depth of her thoughts and the maturity of her character.

This is how she proudly and confidently introduces herself: “I am thirteen years old. I’m half Lebanese half Emarati. Music is one of my passions since it has a poetic vibe that I truly admire. Writing is also my other passion. I started writing when I was about 11 years old. Today, writing poems is a hobby that I do daily. I am also an editor of the school magazine which is a great opportunity just like this one.”

Enjoy!

Lessons

 

Of all my years so far

I learned so much

To equalize all people

Or something as such

I learned other lessons

A lot, I can say

To respect and to give

And how special it is to forgive

Yes, I might seem wise

Even if I failed a thousand tries

Life can’t be a ready go

it can’t be perfect don’t you know?

I learned to never treat people with neglect

We should all treat them with respect

Young or old, we are all a part of humanity

And experience most of tragedy

Giving world

Can’t you see the love in their eyes?

When you have all you want

And yet they’re the ones with pride

Can’t you look deep inside your heart?

When you have everything

And their lives are falling apart

If you say we could make a change

Let’s make the change today

By helping people in each and every way
