....

What happened in Sudan yesterday was sad. Sad...and just very, very sad...I can't find the words to express how I feel about it...but it was just very...barbaric.. and I don't mean that in the discriminatory sense of the word.

We lost. But that's not what's making me sad. In fact, this and this. I had friends in Sudan who we couldn't reach, Egyptian celebrities contacted live talk shows saying their buses were being attacked...

It just breaks my heart..the violence. On both parts, I am not going to be biased..but then...oh, Egypt!

I was guest blogger yesterday at Shokoofeh's! Check my post here.

I found this.




The only good thing about yesterday was the fact that my professor liked my proposal and I am going to present it to the class today! Wish me luck :)


This world needs to learn how to see beauty.

You are right that 'this world needs to learn how to see beauty' but I think that can only happen when people start to see beauty in themselves first instead of all the bad sh*t. (excuse my french)

i agree with you, the world does need to find beauty.

one of my all time fav quotes says, "peace is always beautiful" by walt whitman. if the world could just find that peace they could find that beauty.. no?

I spent one heck of a night in Sudan. I felt as if I was in Darfur rather than Khartoum.

But we survived.

There is always beauty on the path to fortunicty - but only if one knows where to look. Which is kinda part of the beauty of the whole thing anyway.....at least that which might be perceived as BeMUSing.

How awful that a sporting event had to turn so ugly!

Betty said...

It's always sad when things like this happen, lucky is this world to have so many nice people like you who would never dream of doing such things, just remember that.

Ju said...

I honestly don't understand all this rage. Sorry if I might sound controversial but I'm sure if we women ruled, such violence wouldn't happen.
Hope more cheerful news soon.:(

Luckily there are beautiful things like this photo to help us get past the fact that the world is so unbelievably misled at the moment. Here's to hoping the situation improves in due time.
