For many Muslim Americans, 9/11 was a double punch of tragedy and bigotry

The actions of 19 Islamic extremists on 9/11 left an indelible mark on America. Today, millions pause to commemorate the attacks’ 13th anniversary, to honor the victims and to remember that all life is special and sacred. But there’s an untold story amid the many speeches and moments of silence — one filled with a different kind of pain, grief and strong sense of loss. 

Those stories are now being told on social media

I can’t believe this is what our president and vice president spend their time on. We’re in 15 trillion dollars of debt, and millions of people are homeless, and abortion is still legal, and instead of signing bills to fix these things our president is doing this. Well I’m glad you’re having fun, you fucking bitch. Fuck the United States. /rant

WAITNDO YOU THINK THISNIS A REAL THING????
THIS IS SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE OH MY GOD

THIS IS THE BEST POST EVER I’M CRYING

Artist Transforms 2-Year-Old Daughter’s Sketches Into Detailed Paintings

Canadian artist Ruth Oosterman collaborates with her 2-year-old daughter Eve to produce beautiful paintings filled with a combination of energetic, abstract lines and gorgeous details. For each piece, the young girl first doodles on a page with black ink. Oosterman chats with her daughter as she creates to get a sense of the ideas behind the lines. She then uses her own vivid imagination to transform the abstract jumbles into vibrant paintings of animals, landscapes, and portraits.

The 36-year-old Tokyo resident, self-taught sculpture artist Haroshi, combining his love for art and skateboarding, uses the discarded leftovers of broken skateboards to create striking wooden creations.  

His creations are born through styles such as wooden mosaic, dots, and pixels; where each element, either cut out in different shapes or kept in their original form, are connected in different styles, and shaven into the form of the final art piece.

Mirrors and Windows by Gabriele Galimberti and Edoardo Dilelle

The portrait series draws insight into the lives of women across the world based on their intimate living spaces.While some have countless possessions, living in the lap of luxury, others are clearly not as fortunate.

The project states: “In a world that is increasingly shaped by global standardization and IKEA aesthetics, this work explores the rooms of the conventional and the eccentric, the rich and the poor, the mother and the single, the pious and the unbelieving, the sports-obsessed and the shopping-addicted, the tomboy and the girly-girl, the tidy and the shambolic… These bedrooms are the mirrors of the history, personality, culture, obsessions and social status of the girls that occupy them, but are also unique windows into these young women’s worlds.

As a Muslim, my religion and personal ethics prevent me from speaking ill of the dead, as they have passed on and are no longer here to defend themselves.

But acknowledging Joan Rivers made a living off of mocking, degrading, and humiliating others for their physical appearances and saying innocent Palestinian civilians deserve to die isn’t speaking ill of her, it’s just fact.
