Three stories from three different regions of the world on the stress and tensions facing everyday people. After relistening to an interview with Laura Nader on Orientalism and Edward Said's legacy towards post colonial studies, it reminded me of the media's role in painting or writing the world. Said continuously reminded the world that the Palestinians still have not received justice despite most peoples being well aware of the long lasting Palestinian-Israeli conflict. A combination of news stories on Houla Massacre in Syria, the continual instability in Libya brought on by armed rebels who refuse to lower the guns and the Travyon Martin Case led me to comply the three stories below. Enjoy the read.
