  3. Akram Al Deek:

    We are not our age, height, colour, or clothes. We are the books we read. The sweet squeak in our laughter. The tears we cry. The people we accompany. We are the dreams we dream. The pictures on our walls. We should be defined by what we create, not by what we are created with. We should be defined by who we are, not by who we should be. We are our weaknesses and cries. Never the super Mario image we force upon ourselves and is forced upon us by society. We should never be ashamed to cry. The problem rests in crying alone. One of the major problems in our society is the lack of crying publicly. Our fear of the exposition of emotions. Because vulnerability is considered a downfall. A defeat. A crush of the alpha male protagonist image. Whereas in fact vulnerability is a very human characteristic.
