Desi Art: Together we stand

Thursday, October 11, 2012

I've rewritten this post about thirty times. It just sounds too angry, frustrated and sad. With good reason: fourteen year old girls should not get shot for wanting to making the world a better place for women. It just has to get better. Sending my prayers to you little lady - you have made a difference far more than you even know.
'
Powerful and beautiful. It felt appropriate today. Sorry I couldn't find the artist for this piece (will keep looking, please let me know if any of you know.). Via

I think it's hard not to be outraged when you hear about things so unjust happening to those who deserve it least.
I think it's normal, healthy even to be angry, to be filled with righteous indignation when an atrocity happens.

If we do not rail against the wrongs in the world, how will the desperate need for change be heard?

@MartinaThanks for your lovely comment Martina...you are spot on.

What happened to this young girl is a tragedy! Good for you for writing about it and acknowledging it.

Malala's story is a horrifying one. It really makes me aware of just how lucky we are as women to be living in Canada.

I hope what happened to Malala leads to lasting significant change for the better. At least I'd like to believe that will really happen. She deserves to be Time Person of the Year not just because of this, which is what made us all hear of her, but because of her bravery to advocate for education so publicly.

So sad.

Here's a link to info about the art: http://www.bridgemanart.com/asset/279237/Shawa-Laila-b.1940/The-Hands-of-Fatima-1989-oil-on-canvas

It's called "The Hands of Fatima" by Laila Shawa
