On 'human shielding' in Gaza - Opinion - Al Jazeera English

“A language is more than just a complex of sounds and structures and word-meanings. It’s also the bearer of a culture, an incredible freight of human knowledge and experience and understanding—of epics, myths, nursery rhymes, proverbs, parables, ritual formulae, jokes, love-songs, dirges. When a language dies, all this dies with it. Think about that, then multiply it by the literally thousands of languages now at risk.”

I aspire to be this woman when I’m older. 

YASSSSSSS!

This woman was born before women were legally allowed to vote.

So don’t think for a second that she’s joking when she sees you trying to take that right away, Republicans.
