Hello. Lets say it clear, I'm weak. And you, officially the strongest, are not that strong either. So, lets all celebrate this.
Yours truly,

The Queue    "Intimate hours I spent with them have thought me more than I could imagine. Just as easily as everything worth defending can become defenceless, moments of absolute powerlessness can give you superpowers. Even I felt sorry for (my version of) Assad. In this universe without gravity, all we can hold on to is our vulnerability. This invisible wind makes our chest heavy, yet, mysteriously propels us back on our feet again. I have convinced myself it is the strongest weapon humankind possesses, way more powerful than the trail of power games, bomb craters and bullet holes in our collective memories. Vulnerability is a gift we should all celebrate." From: The Vulnerability Series © Abdalla Omari More Images and updates to be published soon. Stay tuned.
