We teach life, sir.
The video I’m posting today may be going viral, but no matter how many people watch this (over 44,874 views right now) it will never be enough. Why? Because the video addresses human suffering. It tells a story we’ve all heard before, but it makes it fresh and real. The video should shake us to the core. That is, if our diminishing humanity hasn’t shrivelled up yet allowing us to shrug at murders, genocides and occupations.
Remember Sophia Grace Brownlee? The little girl who put on an adorable pink tutu and tiara and sang her heart out about men, love, sex and drugs? Her video got 21,440,978 views (as of now). And her jaw-dropping performance was rewarded in front of the whole world when she made an appearance on the Ellen Show. Sophia got to meet her idol and sing, “he just gotta give me that look and when he give me that look, then the panties comin’ off, off.” I wonder if that’s all our society can applaud now.
I leave you with Rafeef Ziadah and I hope that you’ll listen to her story with an open-mind, free from biases.
