What I say: I’m fine
What I mean: Why don’t fictional podcasts have bigger fanbases? The characters are lovable. The plot is well thought out. The medium in which it is presented let’s the listener imagine and create their own version of the character, which leads to a diversity of versions of a character that videos or television series could not achieve. WHY DONT FICTIONAL PODCASTS HAVE BIGGER FANBASES??
I don’t know the words for what I see happening in #Aleppo. I don’t know how to make it make sense and I don’t expect it ever will. How did we let it come to this? How did blind eyes get turned for so very long, how did we give headline space to Donald Trump and his circus over this crisis? How do we still. I am heartbroken by every piece of every news coming from Syria, I am destroyed with every image of every bomb dropping, every person killed, every child displaced. It is too much. It is too far. We must stand up and let our voices combine and speak about this. We must help. We must stop brushing under the rugs all things that make us uncomfortable, we must erase the notion that out of sight can mean out of mind. We are here, together, and we are wasting our precious time killing one another for our differences rather than loving because of them. No more. No more. Still, words are hollow if not given shape with action, and so we must act. I have tagged numerous charities that are on the front lines of this tragedy and all of whom need our help so desperately. Give. Please. #StandWithAleppo and put your money where your heart is. Support this global refugee movement and open doors instead of slamming them shut. Help. Watch. Research and learn. Please.
Give to @unicef give to @white.helmets give to @doctorswithoutborders to @icrc or @unitednations and @savethechildren Just give. Help.
This new visitor caused a bit of a stir in our treatment room, recently!
This little bird is a very pretty fledgeling long-tailed tit, and was brought into us after being found alone with no sign of it’s nest or parents. A delighted Emma and Naomi checked the bird over, and luckily found no injuries. It was very bright and seemed raring to go!
We shall keep monitoring it for a short while and, when it is ready, it will be back to the wild!
staring at my hands. they’re just my hands, like i’ve always had,
but…also there is something of heaven to them, because not that
long ago they were touching your
hands. how could they be ordinary hands and also hold that memory at
the same time?”
Please join us today as we remember not only the human sacrifice of wars and conflict but also the countless animal sacrifices that go alongside them. Over 16 million animals fought alongside man in WWI with 9 million of these tragically never making it back home. 100,000 of these were homing pigeons, tasked with carrying crucial messages across enemy lines; a task in which they had a 95% success rate where others failed. Their jobs helped troops relay their positions and tactics to higher command and played a vital role in making WWI and WWII how we remember them today. It seems a shame with their noble pedigree that some still consider them ‘vermin’, today…

Our staff was lucky to get a beautiful smile from Raghad!
She’s at the ambulatory therapeutic feeding center in the MSF Mother and Child Hospital in Al Houban, Taiz, for the fourth time. Her dad, Khaled, who works in a metal workshop, brings her in once every week, to get therapeutic food for her for the next week. Months ago, mom fell sick, too weak to breastfeed her, and was hospitalized at a private hospital. Raghad’s aunt have been taking care of her, feeding her some rice and artificial baby milk - but milk is hard to find now, and it’s very expensive.
Here in Taiz, most of the health facilities have been forced to close, and it is the people that suffer, unable to get the medical care they so desperately need. The food prices have soared and unemployment is high. Many children suffer from malnutrition.
