Can I ask you to take a moment of honest reflection and step into another life, for a moment. Forget your current concerns, the daily grind, whatever it is. You're home. You're safe.

And then, can you take a moment, and imagine that it was all ripped away from you. Take a moment and imagine your home - it's gone. You've got nothing, but the clothes on your back and the palms of your loved ones - but at least you have that. And you hold them tightly, because the next second you could lose them too.

Take a moment and imagine that your government and an organized group of people who look like you and claim to worship a higher power are actively trying to kill you. Actively. You and your loved ones. You have no home. You have nothing. You run.

You grab those palms of those people you love and you run because nothing on earth matters more than keeping them safe.

Imagine a small child in your life, your child, a niece, a godchild, a friends child. Imagine them being unable to sleep for fear of their own goddamn pillow because they can't disassociate it from the horror they experienced in the dead of the night when they should have been safe.

Imagine, arriving at where you thought you would finally find some solace, some form of peace, where you finally thought that yours and your family's lives would no longer be a stake.

Now, imagine that you were turned away. The door slammed in your face. Feel the sinking in your stomach, your heart drop, your despair.

Feel, for a moment, that surely you will die this way, as so many have. Look at the faces of your loved ones, and tell them there's no hope.

Please, I beg of you, stop your hate. Stop thinking you know what a human is or isn't, because you can see them with your eyes, because they do not reflect the true intent of a soul.

My name is Jen, and I am a photographer. I am on a path to make that into my life.

I never really had a passion until photography. It was always something that had fascinated me, but it had always been one of those things that sits in the back of your head and is rarely taken out. In my grade ten year I took the photography class and was instantly hooked. There was a mandatory amount of photos that we needed to take, but between my friend Katie and I, we did so many more.

I am by no means amazing, but it's what I love to do. And I'm going to keep plugging away at it, hopefully getting better as I go.

If ever needed, I'm always willing to lend out a helping hand to anyone who needs it =] Don't hesitate to ask, and I will do what I can to help. Just one thing to know: if you ask me for a critique, I will give it. I can sometimes come off as a hardass, but I try to give as much constructive feedback as possible and I mean it with kindness =] <3

:heart: Love from Xcetera!

It's not over 'till you're underground
It's not over before it's too late
This city's burnin'
It's not my burden
It's not over before it's too late

She said I can't take this place
I'm leaving it behind

Well she said I can't take this town
I'm leaving you tonight
