Animals, Bones, and Drugs: Humans of New York 5 hrs "I used heroin for ten years. It wasn't a very good life, as you'd expect. I had my son taken from me. I lost my job at the Fiat factory. I spent all my time trying to find money, find dealers, and stay away from police. I hated myself. I couldn't face anyone. Then one day my friend's dog had puppies. I'd never had a dog before, but I always liked animals- so I told him to give me the smallest and ugliest one he had. The one nobody else wanted. And that's how I got Joe. Joe was the angel of my life. We understood each other. There was no need for words. He followed me around all the time. He slept next to me on the street. The moment I opened my eyes in the morning he would lick my face. He gave me self-esteem. I was a complete loser but at least I could take care of Joe. I could bring him to the park. I could bring him to the vet. I could raise enough money to get his medication. He's the reason I was finally able to quit heroin. Because if something happened to me, what would happen to him? So I got clean. It was hard but I got clean. Joe lived for another thirteen years. He got a tumor in 2012 and held on a few more months. I barely survived it. I was able to stay off drugs, but I promised myself that I'd never get another dog. It's just too painful. But two years ago I found Leica beneath a mobile home. She was all skin and bones. She'd been abandoned. I didn't have a choice. For the first few months I called her Joe. But I had to stop. Because Joe'ss gone. And the name doesn't really matter, anyway. It just matters that I love her." (Rome, Italy) i thought this belonged here a very wholesome story

America, Arguing, and Fuck You: Pixelated Boat @pixelatedboat 12h Replying to @pixelatedboat FYI, if you're wondering how Germany commemorates Hitler, this is the spot where he died: garlic-slut: withywindlesdaughter: imagesofperfection: gtfomulder: nichtschwert: irishfino: ithelpstodream: “it’s just a parking lot” exactly. there’s nothing there. not a statue. not a plaque. nothing. [drives over hitler’s death site] Bloody amazing. And you know what’s right next to it? That’s right, the Denkmal für die ermordeten Juden, which translates to the Memorial for the murdered jews. So if you wanna go have a look at the monument commemorating the victims of Hitler’s regime, you can park your car right on the spot he died and walk there. Makes ya think, doesn’t it? Germany: *has a literal parking lot over Hitler’s death site and has the memorial for the murdered Jews right next to it* America: *has statues and museums dedicated to people who believed slavery was so amazing and good they decided to make their own country and murder anyone who disagreed* Women, the streets near the car park are named after: Gertrud Kolmar - German Jewish poet murdered in Auschwitz Hannah Arendt - famous German Jewish philosopher and author, her works on totalitarianism, authority and the nature of power, who fled Nazi Germany in 1933 Cora Berliner - German Jewish economist and social scientist murdered in Trostinets extermination camp reblog this forever  It’s funny too cause people argue that you “can’t erase history” and that’s true. You can, however; choose how you commemorate it. I hope this Bastard is burning in hell while also being extremely pissed off because of all this.Fuck you Hitler.
