I’m really learning that a lot of people feel how I feel. A lot of people are scared. A lot of people have weird pasts. A lot of people are a little odd. A lot of people just want a place to feel safe.
And if you accept them, really accept them, they will accept you.
It just really sank in that in less than two years, I’ll be applying to one or more of the following:
- medical school
- graduate school
- fellowship programs (Fulbright, etc.)
That also means that in less than two years, I’ll be taking the MCAT and/or the GRE.
Where has the time gone?
Do college Starbucks stores accept gift cards?
This is a serious question.
and in that moment I swear we all thought his name was please
Doctor Who everybody.
Okay so I was searching the ”Islam” tag and I see that people are planning to make tomorrow (20th of May) a ”Draw Mohammed [saw] day” to fight for their ”Freedom of Speech”.
What. Am. I. Seeing.
Really? That is unbelievably rude.
(I’m not an expert by any means, but to Muslims, drawing or depicting Mohammad or any other major religious figure in Islam is a horrible insult/form of sacrilege (I think there’s a formal word for it, but I’m not sure what it is…). It is believed that by depicting these figures, the universal applicability of the morals and virtues that they are supposed to embody becomes less effective, and people might begin to focus more on these holy individuals as people and less on the lessons they embody and offer to those alive today. That’s my general understanding, at least.)
I’m not Muslim myself, so my understanding may be limited. If I have any Muslim followers and I’m wrong about this, please, PLEASE feel free to correct me.
I guess the point here is this:
A. Drawing Mohammad is not going to do anything to protect your freedom of speech. Mohammad is certainly not trying to take away that freedom, and neither are Muslims.
B. Besides being completely pointless and ineffective, it’s incredibly disrespectful. Seriously. Cut it out.
