A bit of context on this next series of photos: Dharamshala, India is where the exiled government of Tibet resides. Led by the Dalai Lama, nearly 100,000 Tibetan refugees live in this northern Indian city, where they seek to maintain their traditions and culture in exile. The long journey from Tibet to India includes a grueling 28 day walk through the Himalayan mountains. Many of the refugees make this trek as children, sent by their parents in hopes of studying their language and religion in freedom. In conclusion, here’s a young Tibetan monk playing with a kitten.

Do not tell me today doesn’t matter.

What happened in 2001 set off a chain of events that still hurt just as bad as when they first happened.

9/11 STILL matters. Because of 9/11 I have said what I thought were temporary goodbyes.

Of the many that sacrificed their lives I knew 8. 8 wonder lives of fathers/husbands/friends were taken because they were fighting for our country.

Do not fucking tell me today doesn’t matter. Do not use today to preach your political views. If you have something negative to say about today, you better shut the fuck up.
