A heavy monsoon season in Thailand resulted in some of the country’s worst flooding in half a century. Hundreds of people have died, thousands are displaced and frantic efforts have been made to prevent further flooding into heavily populated areas, such as Bangkok. The disaster has resulted in damage totaling billions of U.S. dollars.
In response to the devastating flooding throughout Thailand, Give2Asia has launched a Thailand Flood Relief Fund 2011 to aid in relief efforts. Gifts to this fund will be used to help Give2Asia’s local partners in Thailand recover from the disasters.

I hope to see a many of things. I hope that the words “ Human Rights ” are actually taken seriously and into effect. I’ve noticed that people don’t realize the true meaning of these two words and just how powerful they actually are. Human Rights isn’t just being able to go and give a vote, it isn’t just being able to protest without persecution, it isn’t just one or two things. It is the right as Human being to be able to live without being persecuted or treated as a second class citizen for economic, racial, gender, religious or any other reasons.
I hope that we can eliminate this term “second class citizen” and once and for all give justice to indigenous groups and minorities in all classes. I hate the term “second class citizen” because I am considered one. As an Assyrian i have seen a great many injustices take place to my people…and that has brought my attention to the broader global issue. I want to be able to see that minorities are given the rights they deserve and are treated as equals and i want citizens of the nation to be treated as part of the nation.
I want to raise awareness to such issues and I hope that sometime down the road whether it be a year from now or 10 years from now, we would have built a system that eliminates such discrimination on vast levels. I would love to do something to help give a voice to the people who truly are not listened to and are ignored. If i could be apart of that…it would be most honorable.
why thank you! Its actually a painting of an assyrian woman :)
it was off of someone’s twitter site, i will find out and post the link. It was a few months ago though
