I live life enjoying as much as possible by enjoying the outdoors, savouring dinner with the family, having fun with friends, or seeing my little sister smile. I understand the value of a penny and that hard work pays off. I am very ambitious and driven and have set goals for myself to achieve. I can be very serious but yet I have a fun personality to have a good time. I feel that life is a huge journey and the key to a successful life is to live in the moment and not dwell on the past! i am an optimist. I'm a hopeless romantic and a dreamer. I love to just go outside and contemplate life while I feel the breeze in my hair and the sun kiss my cheeks! I hope to travel the world one day because there is so much beauty to see in the world. i get bored easily(something i'm not proud of). I am a huge roller coaster and adrenalin junkie and I just love life! i'm a great public speaker. i'm a person who tries to be the best i can be. :D i am also a feminist. a HUGE fan of oprah winfrey. lastly, i'm going to be a history maker.

How can you go on?

I am sick. I am so SICK. I am exhausted of listening to stories about this cruel, CRUEL world. 

How can we live while at the other end of the world a woman is going through abuse? How can we eat peacefully knowing that a marriage between a 14 years old girl and 40 years old man is being celebrated? How can we sleep knowing there's a woman out there in tears because she was slapped by her husband for smiling at another man? 

How can we go on when we know that stoning is still being practised in broad daylight?

The number of untold criminal acts that go on in the world towards women is uncountable. Especially in the Arabic countries. Stoning of women to death, wife beating, child marriages. All these go behind closed doors.

What does it feel like to be helpless in such a situation? To scream but not to be heard. I wonder, are they tired of screaming, of crying? Of wishing they were never alive?
I've ju
st watched a movie, a very depressing one. I cried and cried like a baby, because I could feel their pain. Being helpless, without anyone standing up for them. The Stoning of Soraya M. You have to watch this movie, any person for humanity should watch this movie. Their practices are simply cruel and inhumane. One would cry just watching their pain.

It is based on a true story. It happens. Yes, they do.
This is the clip from the movie, the part where they stone her to death. I couldn't stop crying at this part. To fully understand the clip, I've included the link on YouTube to the full movie. Watch the full movie if you want to understand the clip. :(
