    Afghan Women’s Writing Project | My Father My Hero

    For the daughter, her Dad is the first hero—

    the man who never cheats her, the man who trusts her,

    and gives everything without regret.

    From the time I opened my eyes my Dad protected me

    Even though having a girl was no less than a crime.

    There is the gossip—

    Your husband will marry another woman—

    tears fell from my mother’s eyes

    and she cried again when I arrived,

    the fourth daughter.

    But my…

    One year ago, a member of an Arizona Minuteman border-watch group was arrested for pointing a rifle at a sheriff’s deputy he apparently mistook for a drug smuggler. Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio warned of “chaos if you’re going to have private citizens dressed just like our deputies taking the law into their own hands.” If militia members aren’t careful in their dealings with real law officers, “there could be some dead militia out there,” he added.

    A silent protest in Love Park, downtown Philadelphia orchestrated by performance artists protesting the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson. The onslaught of passerby’s  wanting to take photos with the statue exemplifies the disconnect in American society.  Simply frame out the dead body, and it doesn’t exist.  

    Here are some observations by one of the artists involved in the event:

    I don’t know who any of these folks are.

    They were tourists I presume.

    But I heard most of what everything they said. A few lines in particular stood out. There’s one guy not featured in the photos. His friends were trying to get him to join the picture but he couldn’t take his eyes off the body.

    "Something about this doesn’t feel right. I’m going to sit this one out, guys." "Com’on man… he’s already dead."

    (Laughs.)

    There were a billion little quips I heard today. Some broke my heart. Some restored my faith in humanity. There was an older white couple who wanted to take a picture under the statue.

    The older gentleman: “Why do they have to always have to shove their politics down our throats.” Older woman: “They’re black kids, honey. They don’t have anything better to do.”

    One woman even stepped over the body to get her picture. But as luck would have it the wind blew the caution tape and it got tangle around her foot. She had to stop and take the tape off. She still took her photo.

    There was a guy who yelled at us… “We need more dead like them. Yay for the white man!”

    "One young guy just cried and then gave me a hug and said ‘thank you. It’s nice to know SOMEBODY sees me.’
