so pleasestopbeingsad has a coloring book and today has been a very stressful/anxiety filled day so everytime i get sad/anxious i just grab the next page and start coloring. these are my favorite so far (im still in the cats/dogs section) but they have made me happy in a weird kind of way.
I like the rainbow coloring for the book + the multicolored scarf. very fun! I’m happy to hear that my doodles are making you happy in a weird way. Weird happiness is great happiness.
Day 19: Palestinian death toll passes 1,000 | July 26, 2014
Thousands of Gaza residents who fled the violence streamed back to devastated border areas during Saturday’s 12-hour humanitarian truce to find large-scale destruction: fighting pulverized scores of homes, wreckage blocked roads and power cables dangled in the streets. In northern Beit Hanoun, even the hospital was badly damaged by shelling. Across Gaza, more than 130 bodies were pulled from the rubble on Saturday, officials said. (Sources: 1, 2, 3)

And another amazing photo story. Oh god, I cane barely cope with all the horror in the world at the moment. I’ve donated to the UN for Palestine, to Oxfam for Syria and refugees more widely, but my goodness, I just want to do more. And I don’t know how.
