Quotes for Life

Q. “Why do you think so many women who want to be married aren’t?” -Belinda Luscombe

Dear non-Muslims, I’m Sorry.

There are so many words that I can share in regards to the importance of this post, but I think reading it provides enough insight to its purpose and value.

Thank you Scottish Muslimah for speaking out against the stereotypical discrimination that Muslims face, and for creating such an insightful post!

You are such a strong advocate, and I appreciate your voice and your purpose in educating those who have a bias against Muslims!

“I’m sorry.” They said. For the umpteenth time. It occurred to them that, in fact, they had nothing to be sorry for but if they didn’t say it, life would be much harder.

Dear non-Muslims,

I’m sorry that innocent people all over the world have been killed.

I’m sorry that the killers associate themselves with my religion.

I’m sorry that these terrorists groups are somehow being funded and are able to exist.

I’m sorry that people have been marginalised and ostracised to the extent that they were able to be radicalised.

I’m sorry that Muslims who are killed by terrorists get little to no coverage in the media.

As a black mother, of course the title caught my eye, but it was the statement that started my journey to a greater knowledge.

Original statement: “Four out of ten black children are killed in the womb. Black lives matter?

My Lost Sister: (Part 4)

When our little sister was born, my big sister and I were so happy!

I was six and she was ten.
I don’t remember much about my mom being pregnant, but I remember when we brought our baby sister home.
She was so small and sweet.
We loved her.

It had been five years since my big sister completed our family and a new addition just brought us closer.

Quotes for Life 

“Where after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home – so close and so small they cannot be seen on any map of the world. Test they are the world of the individual person; the neighborhood he lives in, the school or college he attends; the factory, farm, or office where he works.
