  • Pretty ridiculous how much pain is in the world. But also amazing how loving and hopeful our lives can be.

  • Gave me a pool of emotions.😱 Great pictures! Some are heartbreaking and some are just awesome. 12's my favourite.

  • So in 14, the place gets liberated and the first thing people do is cut there beards and burn their burkas? What happened to "oh they're not forced into bags, they where burkas because they want to." ? Very telling if you ask me.

    1 is hard to look at, but I think it's awesome that everyone jumped in and started helping her.

    4, 7 and 8 are awesome😎

    The acid one and the kid with no arms is terrifying

    The kid musician made me cry😭

    And the rest were just normal but still cool😊

    • They're both a choice and are forced on women. Some women wear them as a choice, most don't. The head wrap is a choose for most Islamic women.

  • The last picture is in American History books everywhere.
    I heard the woman in the back shouting racist remarks at Elizabeth got so much flack that she had to apologize.
    And picture #8 is the cover photo for one of Fall Out Boy's albums.
