“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
- Steve Jobs
Magazines with a broad audience, romanticize killings (whether it is a terrorist’s bombing or a femicide) and depict the killers as stars on their front covers.
Where is this trend leading us to? These powerful outlets indirectly encourage disturbed people to commit violent actions and take lives in exchange for a cover story.
We will all remember the above killers’ faces and possiby their names as well.
Why are these magazines promoting them so much, and by extent, their actions as well? Are we accepting it?
Malala Day is the day of every woman, boy and girl who have raised their voice for their rights.
Education and equality.
The right to be treated with dignity.
A story where the pen and voice are more powerful than guns…
The world would have been poorer if Malala hadn’t survived, and becomes poorer every time another “Malala” dies or is simply denied access to education, equal rights and safe environment. Let’s change the world and we will all become richer.
The price of greatness is responsibility.
- Winston Churchill
In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
- George Orwell
Happy 110 birthday George Orwell, your work will always be living with us.
Does this imply that:
1) we want a society where women solely do household work?
2) household work is only for girls (hence the pink color)? thus men are incapable of doing it?
3) girls only like/should like pink color?
By the way, I didn’t have any of these “girly” toys. I enjoyed playing with mini cars and fake weapons, scaring my mother that there was something wrong with me.
Actually, nothing is wrong with me. And if everything that is right with me can be attributed to the “action-toys” or “boy-toys”, I would encourage every girl’s parent never to bring the pink pictured stuff to their home.
Variety in toys is highly encouraged and parents should be aware that cooking skills are not guaranteed upon an oven-toy. Neither being a good mother is taught with a stroller-toy.
PS: The only pink toy I had was Barbie’s fuchsia convertible Jaguar, and I got very disappointed when I realized it is not a racing car.
