If you’ve known me for a while, you know all about the heroic Katie Meyler, founder of More Than Me, an organization providing education and resources to young girls in the slums of Liberia. Katie is currently in West Point, documenting the devastating effects of the Ebola virus and volunteering to help victims & the community. She’s not allowed to physically touch anyone, but that doesn’t stop her from spreading smiles :). Her unwavering bravery is a constant inspiration to me.

#JewsAndArabsRefuseToBeEnemies is a social media campaign that aims to promote love and peace between both Jews and Arabs, Christians and Muslims despite the current conflict.
The campaign was launched by Abraham Gutman (Jewish) and Dania Darwish (Arab), both students at Hunter College in New York, immediately after the start of Operation Protective Edge in Gaza - and this week it gained momentum.
We are use to the images of violence, tears, fear and war that is reported in mainstream media. But this shows a different story. It shows that people are different and love can over look any difference. Love can break down the strongest wall.
Please re - blog. Don’t spread hatred. Spread love.

I want us all to take a moment of silence for Mike Brown and for peace in this country and in the world." - Common, VMAs 2014 #Ferguson #MikeBrown
