But we have no doubt that you are going to make an enormous difference in the days and years to come, and we will be there for you,” they wrote.

Cats, Church, and Dr. Seuss: smi Today 6:33 PM Like I said, mine usually wind up in poetry. I think this was an outlier for us both tbh Tell u what a write you a poem to help drown out the murderwedding Shakespearean sonnet, limerick, or Dr Seuss style? And then I'd need a topic hmm dr seuss styles seems different i actually don't mind the murder wedding topic Sooo a Dr. Seuss poem about a Because if so, comin' right up Today 719 PM yup. key to my heart right there The church bells ka-klangered with rupturous sound as everyone gathered and crowded The Whofolk of Whoville all smiled with to witness the wedding of woman and boy. We're gathered today, the Lorax Up here on the hill with my favorite tree These two will trade vows, together and then let the murderous bloodshed The man did step forward and proffered and stared in her eyes and was lost for a while. But soon did the moment return him with haste as he reached for pages he'd tucked in his waist My Sally, my love, words cannot the love that I feel in my heart and my brain. The feelings come in in a wondrous flood so I have to have have you to kill in cold I promise you this, my dear Sam I Am, I'd poison your breakfast of green eggs and ham. I meant what I said and I said what I I promise I'll kill you, one hundred The crowd did applaud and gushed out their 'awwws and then did soon fall. and then did soon fall a quite tangible pause The Lorax stepped forward, his face in And now let the murdering bloodfest Horton stomped guests into glittering refusing to listen to screams of a Who He tossed a man up, straight up in the airl And down he did crash through a woody old chair Thing One and Thing Two both did pull and squeezed on the triggers.. oh what such good fun They gunned down the Lorax with rat-a- tat-tat but then came their boss the nefarious Cat He waitzed up to One and did toss his hat free and said "give your gun, you should give it to me!" "I can't give it, Cat.. 'd be a sitting duck!" But the Cat didin't give one flippity-flap- flying fuck. He pushed on a button and watched his machine a horrific titan that loomed over scene Its arms and its gloves all did spin all knocking off heads quite scary no doubt! But then Sam I Am gave and leaped through the air- wow, did a furious roar, He tossed a He tossed a grenade right into Cat's seat and Booml all that lay were two smoking cat feet. All 'cross the field, corpses bled rainbow hues, which pooled up and squished with each step into shoes The bride and the groom were t two to stand and there they embraced, both with blades in their hand he last A flash and a crack, and then both coughed in sync and down to their knees both in unison slinked. As darkness closed in, with stopping of they shared one more kiss... "ill death do us part Today 8:15 PM that was the best thing i've ever read we can get married now i'm ready Time to run these poems straight into the ground 😎

College, Goals, and Head: #ENOUGH NATIONAL SCHOOL WALKOUT -MARCH 14, 2018 WOMEN'S MARCH YOUTH EMPeWER the-occult-babe: geekinglikeaboss: weavemama: e-v-roslyn: weavemama: IT’S OFFICIAL. There will be a national school walkout on March 14th. This walkout demands action to finally be taken on gun violence. No more students deserve to be gunned down because lawmakers don’t wanna do anything about it. We are the generation that’s being affected the most by these weak gun laws, and WE are the ones who should be protesting about it. One student dying because of a gunman is one too many. SPREAD THE WORD, this applies to ALL students!! @weavemama What if our spring break falls on that day? How else can we pitch in? There’s another walkout date on April 20th! For the 18th anniversary of Columbine. OKAY!!! REALLY QUICK CAUSE YOU NEED TO KNOW THIS!!#1: YOUR RIGHTS DO NOT END ONCE YOU WALK INTO THE SCHOOL! You need to take a good long look at your rights and civil liberties because they will be called into question. I would strongly advise contact an ACLU representative and asking them about this so you are prepared to defend yourselves from a legal stand point because the shit is going to hit the fan and it’s going to hit it hard. #2: DO NOT RISE OR RESPOND TO THREATS! There will be threats. They will threaten to put you in detention, call your parents, expel you, get rid of your extra curricular activities, et cetera. Anything they can to control the situation  before the media gets involved or the school board. You must have solidarity within your participants, lock arms, form prayer circles, sit down and do not stand. Do whatever it takes to show a non-violent, passive approach to show that it is your intention to disrupt and draw attention to the problem without being physically confrontational.#3: SELECT A SPEAKER! Sooner or later, camera crews are going to show up. This is where messages get mixed and it becomes very easy to loose track of your goals. Draft a short speech, under 30 seconds, and select a speaker for your school who will address the media with the concerns of the student body and the demands you have before you will return to school and your education.#4: TAKE YOUR EDUCATION INTO YOUR OWN HANDS! This is not a chance to take advantage and get some time off school. The media WILL USE THIS as an excuse to discredit you. If you can, get teachers on board who will provide you with a curriculum that you can continue to work on from home. Do NOT GIVE UP YOUR EDUCATION! Refuse to participate in a government funded system of education which denies you basic safety.#5: If you can, GET YOUR TEACHERS INVOLVED! Is there a teacher your trust as a group? Is there a teacher who would offer their support, voice and guidance during this walk out? Get them involved. I know it’s not fair, but teen voices are underrated and overlooked. Having an adult head the operation or at the very least being willing to speak out IN YOUR FAVOR ON CAMERA will go a long way to adding legitimacy to your cause! Remember, their lives are in danger too, and more than once a teacher has put themselves between the shooter and their students. Ask them to be a part of this if you can. I don’t think this applies to college but for all you kiddos

Memes, Money, and Police: Girlfriend of Philando Castile Reaches $800,000 Settlement For Emotional Distress and False Arrest @balleralert Girlfriend of Philando Castile Reaches $800,000 Settlement For Emotional Distress and False Arrest – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Nearly 17 months after PhilandoCastile was gunned down by St. Anthony police officer Jeronimo Yanez, his girlfriend, who live-streamed the traffic stop murder, has been granted an $800,000 settlement in the wake of his death. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, DiamondReynolds will receive $675,000 from the Minnesota city where Castile was shot, as well as an additional $125,000 from the city of Roseville and the League of Minnesota Cities Insurance Trust. A portion of the money will be held in a trust for her 4-year-old daughter, who witnessed the brutal murder on July 6, 2016. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although the agreement still needs to be approved by the court, the settlement will resolve Reynolds’ claims of emotional distress and false arrest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “While no amount of money can change what happened, bring Philando back, or erase the pain that my daughter and I continue to suffer, I do hope that closing this chapter will allow us to get our lives back and move forward,” Reynolds said in a statement. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, the settlement comes just months after Castile’s mother settled for more than $2 million in a wrongful death suit of her son. The settlement also comes just months after Yanez, who shot Castile several times after he informed the officer that he had a firearm, was found not guilty of second-degree manslaughter.

Beautiful, Guns, and Target: "AFTER MY DAUGHTER WAS SHOT AND KILLED BY HER EX-HUSBAND, I BECAME A PASSIONATE ADVOCATE FOR SENSIBLE GUN LAWS. IN 2015, IHELPED PASS A BILL IN OREGON TO CLOSE A LOOPHOLE IN THE STATE'S AWS THAT ALLOWED DOMESTIC ABUSERS TO BUY GUNS WITHOUT A BACKGROUND CHECK." MADELEINE GARCELON EVERYTOWN FOR GUN SAFETY everytown: Families affected by domestic violence are helping pass bills that keep guns from domestic abusers. Here’s Madeleine’s story:“My daughter, Nicolette ‘Nikki’ Elias, did everything she could legally do to protect herself and her two young daughters from her abusive ex-husband — including obtaining a restraining order against him. Despite these efforts, my beautiful Nikki was brutally gunned down by her ex-husband while their two daughters were there, who were just 7 and 8 years old at the time. He then drove my little granddaughters to his house and turned the gun on himself. In an instant, our lives were forever shattered by an abuser with a gun.Since Nikki’s death, I’ve become a passionate advocate for sensible gun laws to keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers. In 2015, I testified in favor of a bill in Oregon to close a loophole in our state gun law that allowed people with dangerous histories to buy guns from unlicensed sellers without a criminal background check. Later that year, the bill passed and is now the law.Join me and the millions of Americans dedicated to ending gun violence against women. Text JOIN to 64433.”- Madeleine Garcelon

Beautiful, Children, and Ignorant: Let's Talk: How Important Is lt To Talk About Racism In Your Household? @balleralert Let’s Talk: How Important Is It To Talk About Racism In Your Household? -blogged by @peachkyss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With all that’s going on in today’s society from the increase in racially-charged hate crimes and black men, women and children being gunned down by police to being publicly disrespected by the celebrity-in-chief, Trump, it’s extremely important to discuss racism within your household. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For years, racism wasn’t discussed as often in households due to many not wanting to push the issue onto their children. Today, racism is so blatant, especially as it’s spewed directly from the White House, that it needs to be discussed with our children to prevent the worst case scenario. They need to have a clear understanding that there are some ignorant people in this world that will not respect them because of the color of their skin. They must understand that people will hate them and target them because of a little extra melanin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Many of us raise our children to love and respect others, but then you have some people that could care less how you or your children feel. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Racism is not an inherited trait. It is a learned behavior that has been pushed onto children at a young age. Children don’t just start hating other races, they are taught to be hateful. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It doesn’t make it any easier when you have a clown in office who takes every opportunity to put down other races and nationalities. We have to instill in our children that they are beautiful, they are smart , and most of all important. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Don’t let another day pass you by without having the conversation about racism with your children. They are never too young. Remember parents, you are your child’s first teacher.

Batman, Future, and Jordans: NER BROS ANNOUNC ER BROSAN ES SHPOINT MOVI -IN NE DCEU #wBS SD YOFTHEBATMAN Afternoon Gothamites! Before the entire cast of "Justice League" hit the stage of Hall H during San Diego Comic Con this morning, attendees saw a sizzle reel revealing several future Extended Universe films. The reel began with the words “Where wonder awaits, where justice prevails, where good battles evil, from Gotham to Atlantis, Metropolis to Apokolips, Krypton to Themyscira and beyond, welcome to the worlds of DC.” Then several logos were shown for the following films: Shazam, Suicide Squad 2, The Batman (accompanied by Ben Affleck’s Batman), Justice League Dark, Batgirl, Green Lantern Corps (accompanied by Hal Jordan and John Stewart comic art), The Flash (accompanied by a “Flashpoint” logo) and the highly anticipated Wonder Woman 2. The Flash solo movie is reported as being influenced by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert's popular 2011 arc "Flashpoint". In this crossover event, in an effort to save his mother's life from the Reverse Flash, Barry Allen aka The Flash discovers he has changed reality and the life of his allies, including the Batman; in this timeline, it is Thomas Wayne, Bruce Wayne's father, that is the Dark Knight when his son was gunned down by a mugger. Many have speculations what "Flashpoint" could mean within this cinematic universe, in particular to the established Batman mythology. Yesterday, sources spread about Ben Affleck's Batman potentially being ushered out of the DCEU in future films. Today during the Hall H panel, Affleck stated he is thrilled to be playing the character and his excitement with working with Matt Reeves on the first solo film "The Batman". However, this doesn't set in stone Affleck's future after the first solo film and, within this continuity, Flashpoint could change the status of our current Batman, taking out Affleck. "Flashpoint" in the DCEU could also show us Thomas Wayne as Batman; Thomas Wayne debuted in 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who could possibly suit up as our hero in this Flash film. What are your thoughts on the slated DCEU films, what are your hopes about Flashpoint and thoughts on Affleck's time in the DCEU? We'll have more SDCC news soon, stay tuned! 🦇🎬

Memes, A Big Mac, and Black Guy: Employees: We want $15 an hour McDonalds ORDER ORDER HERE HERE TTStoryTime Sorry for no captions. It's the new 🌊 tho - I don't usually like eating fast food but a nigga is starving word to Ethiopia. So I pull into the McDonald's drive thru and wait for the machine to talk. "Hi welcome to McDonald's" "Hi, can I have a large ice cream cone with no cone and no ice cream?" "Ice cream machine broke." "Damn OK. Well in that case can I have a Big Mac and a small drink?" "🅱IG Ma🅱 Ma🅱chine broke." "What? What's a 🅱ig Ma🅱?" "My nigga you don't know what a 🅱ig Ma🅱 is? 😂👋👌💯" "What language are you speaking?' "Sir can you please order there are people behind you." "Ummm okay... Can I just have a large drink?" "Drink machine broke." "Ugh I'm tired of this let me speak to the manager!" "Manager machine broke." At this point I'm so irritated I park my car and walk into the building. "Can I please speak to the person in charge?" I say to cashier. "Person in charge machine broke." I face-palmed and walk out of the door. I went to the trunk of my car and pulled out the M14 I was saving for class tomorrow. When I entered the store again, I pointed the gun at all of the employees. The people behind me screamed and ran. Noone dared move. "Ima give y'all motherfuckers one more chance. Either I talk to who's in charge or I kill all of you. What's it gonna be?" To my left I see a black guy in a wheelchair dressed differently roll towards the register. "Are you the manager?" I ask. He nods. "Why the hell are your employees saying the machines are broken?" He gestures behind him. It was the Ice cream machine with a note on it that read: "Broke" To the right was another machine Id never seen before. "🅱ig Ma🅱 ma🅱hine broke." He said. I looked at his wheelchair. His legs were skinny and lifeless. "Manager machine broke?" I asked. He nodded. "O." I say quietly. I put the gun down and walk out of the store. Suddenly I realized I forgot something. I turn around and say: "What about the Person in charge machine?" "Nigga is you dumb?" All the employees laugh. Little did they know I still had that M14 in my hands 😉
