Tom Hurndall was a peace activist and an aspiring photojournalist. His photographs, alongside his journals, bear witness to the often terrible, sometimes uplifting, events he saw and experienced while living among families in Iraq, in a refugee camp in Jordan, and in the Gaza Strip. It was there on 11 April 2003 that he was shot in the head by an Israeli soldier while attempting to rescue a child who had been pinned down by gunfire. He died nine months later in hospital in London.RIP

sorry but children younger than her in the middle east get blown up by drones purely because of their proximity to suspected terrorists, i don’t really care about a dutch teenager getting arrested for sending a “joke” threatening tweet to an airline while claiming to be a member of al qaeda because she thought her obvious positions of privilege would protect her from any and all consequences

Adventuring through Salzburg, Prien am Chiemsee, Eggstät, and Munich!

Notes from Bavaria.

Flashing back to a few years ago to when I joked about being able to live off of bread and chocolate. Well, I’m in Prien am Chiemsee now, and that’s exactly what I’m having to do. Here’s what I learned… it’s not as fun as I thought it would be when I was a kid haha. I have been thriving off of bakeries since I’ve been in here. I just bought a giant piece of bread for 3 euros just now, it’s my food for the rest of the day.

I miss vegetables. These adventures are more than worth it though!! Al7amdulillah.
