8 year old son of a rebel fighter, Ahmed, smoking and standing guard with an Ak-47 outside a barricade in Aleppo, Syria.
Ahmed’s parents were killed, and he’s living with his uncle now. “I ended up helping my uncle and his comrades because I have no other choice, there is no school, my family is dead, what choice do I have?”

When he’s not manning his post, Ahmed is doing chores and fetching tea and ammo. “There is always something to do here, I am never bored,” Ahmed said. “The fighting has calmed down a lot from last year. We had a lot of mortars, but snipers are still a big problem. Sooner or later the regime will kiss you with one of their bullets.”

"Ines Ramirez, a peasant from Mexico, had no medical training but still used a kitchen knife to cut open her abdomen in a painful hour-long Caesarean Section conducted by herself; both she and her baby survived."

I was recently challenged to participate in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and I’m really happy that something like charity could go viral and help spread good will and provide concrete donations to non-profits making positive changes, so I was excited to participate. While I’m happy so much money has been raised for ALS, I’ve been really moved and saddened by the recent events in Ferguson, Missouri, so I’ve chosen to redirect my energy towards civil rights and Michael Brown’s story. I’ve made a donation to the ACLU, and since California is in a drought, instead of doing a video, I made an art piece about Michael Brown and how his story speaks to larger issues of human rights.
