"I want you to remember who you are, despite the bad things that are happening to you. Because those bad things aren’t you. They are just things that happen to you. You need to accept that who you are and the things that happen you, are not one and the same."

You can keep bitching about poor people “pulling themselves” up by their bootstraps, but they can’t pull it up if they have no shoes to begin with. 
The same applies to all marginalized and underprivileged groups.

COUNTER // CULTURE

For my photography class I did series of self-portraits in which I attempted to portray culture and counterculture for the past 10 decades. This is the product of that idea…

"I was a school teacher for all my life, but I had to leave when I went blind. It was tough for me because I’d helped so many other people’s kids, and then when my own kids got to high school, I couldn’t see enough to help them with their homework. But everything turned out all right though. This one’s on the way to join her sister at the University of Albany!"
