I’m Sorry (2008) - Iraqi Artist Adel Abidin
During a recent trip to the U.S., I met many people from different educational and social backgrounds. Yet, surprisingly, they all reacted in the same way when I mentioned that I was Iraqi. - Adel Abidin
I don’t like this. Iraqis don’t need to apologize for anything…

Syed. 1/4 of my team in a fellowship i did all year. This is what he wrote about me: “She came into our program as the youngest fellow of the group, but her lively stories, mature decision-making skills and inspiring personality was a joy to behold. Her incredible work ethic and brain power made her the heartbeat of our health and justice program.”
Not gonna lie, it made me tear up and feel super guilty that I didn’t realize how upset Syed was for not being able to graduate and apply to med school in 4 years, which was his goal. I def equally appreciate his work ethic and intellectual statements, and his kindness. So glad I was blessed with this new friend and I can’t wait to see my old/best friends soon.
Women are pressured to appeal to men.
Men are pressured to cover their emotions.
Youths are pressured to fit in.
Babies are just chillin’ until they become part of the cycle.
