Humans of Amsterdam | “If we are strangers, it’s to easy to become enemies”

A story from Debra about Tel Aviv, story telling and Humans of Amsterdam.
"I was doing an internship in Tel Aviv, working with an organization that supports minority groups to come together to share their stories. People from all different nationalities, Israelis, Palestiniens, they all came together in one room to talk about very normal things, to share their life stories. When I came back to Amsterdam I knew I wanted to keep going, to keep sharing, and so I started Humans of Amsterdam. When I was in Tele Aviv, it was the first time I realized how powerful story telling is. It’s so important to keep in contact with each other, no matter what religion or color, we need to keep in touch so we don’t ever become strangers, because if we are strangers, it’s to easy to become enemies."
Okay well basically, would you all be able to go on my blog and click on my ads ONCE for me please? :}
As some of you will know, i’m going to china (i’ve paid the full amount now!)
however i had to pay my family back (they had to lend money to pay for some of it) & my dad might lose his job (the company has a new person or something and they’re like getting rid of people idk) so i’m really worried about it because they’ve paid a lot for me to go to china (before we knew about the new ppl @ the company and that he might lose his job) and there’s no way for me to get that money back and i’d feel awful if (if he does lose his job) we have no money to pay for the house and stuff because we used up all our money for my silly trip to china, so i’m trying my best to help them out with what i can
so yeah if you do that please feel free to message me for a follow/reblog/whatever (message me w what you want, and include what the ad was for) it means a real lot so thank u!!!!!
Also if you could reblog this so others can see it it would be a massive help, thank you!
