Happy birthday to the man who always inspires me, the man who has saved me from countless bouts of self-destruction, the man without whom I would not be who I am today, the man who has been the soundtrack to my love, my heartbreak, my tears, my joy, my failures and successes, the man who has taught me so such and given me so much more. I hope to be as wonderful as he when I reach 72 years. Here’s to many more, Bob. Xxx
The media’s repeated scapegoating of the Muslim population and its continual ‘clash of civilisations’ narrative must be challenged. It is time we recognise and fight against the distorted depictions of Muslims we see every day in the media. When a Muslim murders a white man it is denounced as terrorism and considered worthy of rolling news coverage but when a Muslim is killed in a racist attack, like the one on 75 year-old Mohammed Saleem in Birmingham earlier this month, it is treated as a one-off murder and largely ignored. These blatant double standards are not acceptable. We Will Not Let Fear Divide Us. Stand Against Racism. (via iambeester)
You know, every time I think how lucky I am I feel like screaming.
