Repeat after me...
“The truth has to be repeated,” Pakistani scholar Eqbal Ahmed once wrote. “It doesn’t become stale just because it has been told once. So keep repeating it. Don’t bother about who has listened, who not listened… the media and the other institutions of power are so powerful that telling the truth once is not enough. You’ve got to keep repeating different facts, prove the same point.”

Another of my recent photos:
This is Robert with his feline friend, Jeremiah. (Yes, I made a donation and yes, I asked permission to take a photo.) I asked Robert how Jeremiah could be so calm on crowded 5th Avenue. Robert smiled and replied, “Because I’m calm. Most people don’t understand animals like I do."
