    "Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.
    This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population. It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals. It is some fifty miles of concrete pavement. We pay for a single fighter with a half-million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people… . This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron."

    — Former US President Dwight D. Eisenhower

    I try to keep my tumblr as light hearted as possible, but once in a while I feel compelled to share things of a heavier caliber. I’m very lucky to have a relatively safe and happy life, and it’s easy to lose perspective.

    Watch this video (from 1:45) that came out of Daraya, Syria yesterday and try your hardest to place as much value in the life of the cameraman as you do your own. There’s no gore, death, etc, but this is still one of the most terrifying and shocking things I’ve ever seen.

    Syrian rebels go to grab their weapons after hearing a tank is nearby, only to be killed by that tank seconds later. 

    What an intense, and deeply saddening photo. I recommend seeing the entire series. It took me a while to completely digest them. 

    Big props to Tracey Shelton for putting her life on the line to let the world know what is really happening in Syria.
