What actually happened with you and Rachel Harvey all those years ago? I still don't know the full story and I wonder about the whole thing a lot.

Who is this? David? Way to bring up the past, but I will tell you because I am ready to talk. I let her down, I loved her and she was my best friend and I left her. I was too obsessed with leaving my childhood behind and getting my fresh start, growing up, that I left her behind as well, when we were just getting started. I was young and I didn’t realize that the friendship we had, you don’t find that often. I don’t regret the leaving part, I needed to get out of that place, it was killing me, but God I regret not taking her with me, because she didn’t get out, and it did kill her. She told me she needed me and I told her that I would always welcome her here but it wasn’t enough, I should have asked her to come with me and I didn’t and now I need her and she’s gone. I will always remember that one clumsy, perfect night we have together when we just kids, I never found anyone else who felt like home like Rachel Harvey, I think maybe we could have fixed each other. I miss her everyday.

Stop calling what’s happening in Ferguson a “riot”.

It is not a riot.

Vancouver losing the Stanley Cup a few years ago was a riot. It was angry, drunken destruction with no purpose. (And as a Canadian, it was a shameful event)

Ferguson is not a riot. It is a protest. It is an uprising. It is a civil rights revolution. The prople of Ferguson may be angry, but they have a reason to be angry, and they are not violent, and they are not hooligans, thugs or looters. They are protesting for their human rights which are currently being denied.

Look at the difference between a riot and a protest. A riot is chaos. A protest has a purpose.

straight boys think girls can’t take compliments, and that’s ridiculous cause i’ve seen so many girls compliment each other, i’ve seen conversations & friendships blossom from girls complimenting each other in line, on the street, at school waiting for the bys, pretty much anywhere.

the problem is straight boys think sexual harassment & assault are compliments.

It wasn't your fault she OD'd Johnny

So they say. But I was the only one who knew she had secrets, and I was the only one who had seen the cuts on her arms and legs and I still left her.

Antonio the Cava is a retired teacher. After 42 years of teaching he decided that he could do more by spreading the love of reading to children who were unable to get to a library. Thus, in 2003, he bought a second-hand motorbike and modified it to create a portable library that contains 700 books and has been traveling since then.Each week he drives to the villages in the region of Basilicata in southern Italy. The sound of an organ announces his arrival. When they hear the song, excited children run to the mobile library for their next book. Antonio travels over 300 miles a month without any compensation, just to make children smile and invest in their futures. What an incredible inspiration he is. Thank you Antonio for all that you do!

This just happened in Seattle. A group of nonviolent protestors in support of Palestine were being harassed by a WHITE MAN, this fucking mall cop comes out and maces and detains a black man WITH NO AFFILIATION TOWARDS EITHER GROUP. AN INNOCENT BLACK MAN JUST WALKING INTO THE WESTLAKE MALL. The protestors are actively telling the mall cop that he MACED THE WRONG GUY, that the black man did nothing wrong, and he still handcuffs him and DENIES him water to flush out his eyes being offered by the protestors. I’m so disgusted. I have been to this area and mall many times in my life and I no longer feel safe going. I hope to god he presses charges and that this scum sucking shitstain loses his job. I’m so scared right now. I’m so fucking scared. Source here, but let the video speak for itself.
