The Red ScareIt's been almost a year since this happened, but now I'm finally ready to share it. Any Islamophobic comments will be immediately hidden so don't even try. Even if you hate Muslims or you think of them as dangerous, this is a true story about something terrible that happened to an innocent girl.The Red Scare by StrongButGentle
I was in physics class first period on the first Monday of April 2014, when the vice principal said over the intercom that the students would be called down by class to an assembly. This was surprising to most of us, as an assembly had not been planned. My physics teacher asked what the assembly was for.
"You know the girl who wears this?" A senior in my class asked, making a sweeping motion with her hand around her face.
I knew who she was referring to. There was a Muslim freshman -- we'll call her X -- who wore a hijab every day. She seemed to have many different ones. I saw her in the hallway sometimes. She looked very quiet and shy.
The senior said that someone had put a note in X's
A summer's eveningHer sister calls her outside and she respondsA summer's evening by 8bitisawesome
"I'll be out in a minute."
She finishes her work and runs to the door, she starts to slip on her sandal
then changes her mind and runs outside barefoot
not caring if they get dirty
The sun is starting to set, as they run laughing the blades of grass
tickling their soles as they stomp it down the sun kissing their cheeks
The sprinkler is on full blast and before they know it they're getting sprayed
They scream with laughter as they get soaked, the water is cold.
Her sister takes the sprinkler and sprays her with it, gleefully
she laughs and takes it from her sis and sprays her back, revenge
The water hits the lower back and her sister jumps "Aaaaah! Cooold!"
But the water feels so good on this hot day, they drink from the hose
They put the sprinkler back and run on the grass doing cartwheels
laughing, joking, competing to see who can do them better
they walk on the road, the asphalt felt good underfoot

I'm a dreamer and an artist just like all of you . . .|
I have been drawing since I was six years old. I didn't think much of my drawings, but my classmates were stunned by them. I drew a pair of pink Converse sneakers when I was nine years old, and my mom was so amazed she got me to sign it and made copies of it to everyone she knew. Then she consigned me to a ton of art courses in drawing, painting, and a little of ceramics.
Art is a natural talent and a gift. Sports have different seasons, school ends eventually, but art stays with you forever.
To me, music and art are the most beautiful and compelling forms of self-expression and catharsis. Art is the breath of life in me; it is my passion, my joy, and my sanctuary. I draw and write whenever I feel the pull - I have much more time in the summer, but despite school, workload, and stress, I draw and write in between.
I mostly do photography, anime art, fan art, realistic drawings, and literature. I have over 400 art pieces, I am the founder of Ran-maoFC and I update my journal entry every few days to weekly
