Meet the Kurdish Women Fighting ISIS in Syria
Photo essay
Syria/US (2014)
[x]
According to an article in the Wall Street Journal:

“The jihadists don’t like fighting women, because if they’re killed by a female, they think they won’t go to heaven,” said one female [Kurdish] fighter.

Unfortunately, the truth of this is doubtful. But that shouldn’t diminish the fact that 7,000 volunteers have joined the Women’s Protection Unit (YPJ) to resist ISIS.
On the other hand, PKK, the Turkey-based, pro-Kurdish group they’re affiliated with is classified as a terrorist group by the US State Department. 
Girl power is very ethically complicated.

POSITIVE VIBESYou cannot instantly change the situation by being positive about it. Whatyou can instantly change is your perspective, and that will give you anenormous advantage.Even when there’s no good justification for being positive, be positive.Because it is always far superior to the alternative, and gives you maximumpower and effectiveness.Being positive is a choice you can make that will connect you to the bestpossibilities. Being positive forces you to also be positively creative.When things are difficult, do you really want to make them even moredifficult by being negative? Choose instead to realistically see thesituation for what it is, and then to be positive about moving forward fromit.Eventually, somebody is going to change things for the better, and it mightas well be you.
