GUIDANCE by Sis. Yasmin

A car ahead was moving like a turtle and not giving me way in spite of my continuous honking!
I was on brink of losing my cool when
I noticed the small sticker on the car's rear!

"Physically challenged~ Please be patient."

And that changed everything!!
I immediately went calm & slowed down!!
In fact I got a little protective of the car & the driver!!!
I reached work a few minutes late, but it was ok!

And then it struck me. Would I have been patient if there was no sticker!???!
Why do we need stickers to be patient with people!??

Would we be more patient & kind with others if people had labels pasted on their foreheads??
Labels like ——
" Lost my job" , "Fighting cancer", "Going through a bad divorce" , " Suffering Emotional abuse " , "Lost a loved one", "Feeling worthless" , " Financially messed up"..... and more like these!!!!

Everyone is fighting a battle we know nothing about.

The least we can do is be patient & kind!!!

Let us respect the invisible labels!!!!

Soft Targets

One of the most demeaning forms of human behavior is the bombing of civilian populations. Russia is doing that right now.

Ukraine is successfully answering the bombing.

Worse than that is the bombing of civilisations which cannot shoot back and have no anti-aircraft weapons. They cannot even respond to long range artillery and tanks.

America has been doing that to Islamic groups such as Al-Qaida , ISIS and al-Shabab. The bombing of their families has been documented. NATO as a whole has participated. There has been no voice raised against these atrocities. In fact the bomber pilots are hailed as heroes.

More than 40000 Muslim civilians were killed in the bombing of Mosul by NATO and Iranian artillery.

Russians did that to eastern Aleppo where thousands were killed. There was no protest from the western powers.

So there is a double standard. If Ukrainian civilians are killed, even one or two, the media are full of it.
