May 06, 2009 4:18pm this pic deserves a lot of recognition & I hope it gets it. I grew up as a devout Muslim in American; I was the 1st generation for the Persian/Armenian side of me & I'm certainly quite mixed which made me a target for even more criticism & bashing. I can't stop staring deep into this girl's eyes & then I look at the stitches that attach the thick stars to the flag. Flickers of discrimination race through my mind when I see this but then again I see rays of positivity stemming from this photo. I could talk about this for hours. You rock ok. Thats how I'll end this k!
