2 Brave Girls Break Religious Stereotypes: Slam Poetry Like You’ve Never Seen.

Via on Apr 15, 2014


Words fail me now.

This message is so deep and profound, and so mature for two relatively young girls, who stand hand in hand together as one.

This is beautiful and challenging—and asking people to consider religious and racial stereotypes.

These are poignant and philosophical words that are worthy of everyone’s time.

Wow, wow and more wow.

I am inspired and amazed by this message that is delivered so eloquently:

About Laura Kutney

Laura Kutney  loves to laugh until her face and stomach hurt. If you opened her secret box, you would find books, words, art, photos and a world of feelings. She can ponder a word for a day, or write a story in an hour. She has a photographic memory but is also dyslexic. Yep, the two coexist inside of her like a little universal joke. Originally a chemical engineer, she is now a mother to three teen children and has been married to her true love for 19 years. Life is good and ever-changing. She counts on the second part of that last sentence sometimes hourly. She can be found here as a featured author for elephant journal, on her blog (Mosaic Commons) and on Facebook.

    In watching this video and reading the comments, my first thoughts were "hell yeah" and "where there are children, there is always hope." These thoughts coming from the humanitarian in me…thank you for this video.

      Glad you like this as much as I did. I also think that there is hope in future generations, but I also think that we need to look in the mirror and realize that we are someone else's 'next generation' and that we need to do some of the work and make some of the changes ourselves. All the best to you! Laura

    I’ve seen this in a dozen versions. groups in Israel+Palestine try to celebrate holidays together, grieve together, and live together, but they are a few hundred idealists in millions of sheep, not represented in government and diplomats on either side. The moderates just don’t count when violence rules, I’m afraid. Preaching poetically to the choir won’t help :-(
