You know, I think it’s really sad because I don’t know everyone really closely like I know other people but I think that so many people are in denial of their situations. Whether it be a good situation or a bad situation…I don’t feel that people live freely enough. Don’t use schooling as a crutch to convince yourself that you are doing the right thing or to impress or to please anyone. Think realistically and rationally. Don’t let green paper have a hold on the blank pieces of paper that you have yet to write on. It’s okay to feel sad, lost, confused, wrong, lonely…it’s alright to smile when you’re sad. It’s ok to feel. Find yourself. It’s sad because I believe you’ve all lost yourselves. Don’t live up to someone else’s outlook for your own future…because it’s yours not theirs. Take time to live your dreams…take time to acknowledege your dreams. It’s okay to change your mind, it’s yours to change. Live by and at your own pace, you only get one chance in this flesh. Let your soul soar. Read more. Read tons. Stay alone. Seek help. You only get one chance in this flesh. It’s ok to change your mind, it’s yours to change.
Some of the biggest names in American retail have been linked to a Jordanian garment factory that allegedly rapes, tortures, and abuses its female workers, according to a report by the Institute of Global Labour and Human Rights, formerly known as the National Labor Committee. In a petition on Change.org, the human-rights organization accuses supervisors at Classic Factory, which supplies clothing to Walmart, Target, Macy’s, Kohl’s, Hanes, and Land’s End, of sexually assaulting dozens of migrant workers from Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, most of whom are virtually imprisoned in dilapidated surroundings. “We only went to Jordan to earn money to help our families,” says a young woman who goes by the name “Nazma” to protect her identity. “We had no idea that factory managers would rape so many of us young girls.”
