thecrimsonarcher: jmichealg: sixpenceee: Letter from a trapped coal miner saying goodbye to his wife, Tennessee 1902. His name was Jacob Vowell. Elbert was his 14 year old son.  Man… heartbreaking. The tragedy at the Fraterville Mine in Anderson County, one of the worst mining disasters in Tennessee history. Out of the 216 men who were killed during the explosion, only 89 bodies could be identified and were taken to the Fraterville Cemetery, where they buried in what was called the “Miner’s Circle”. If anyone reading this gets the time, look for the other Fraterville letters. By the time you finish reading them all, you’ll feel dead inside. There was one in particular that haunts me to this day, where one man wrote that he was feeling sleepy and was about lay down. His brain was deprived of oxygen and he was suffocating to death and that’s why he was so tired. He probably died right after finishing his note. Another man lamented he would not see his newborn baby and apologized to his wife for leaving her as a widow. A letter to a son simply read, “Never work in the mines”. The explosion was triggered by a lamp on a miner’s helmet. Back in those days, they didn’t have battery powered headlights like they do now. They had to use candles. When the flame from the candles came into contact with methane gas that had built up in one of the mine shafts that had not been properly ventilated, it blew the mine to hell and back and destroyed some of the town in the process. : and come to heoven Chden thg bestsh2 With m Uu? thecrimsonarcher: jmichealg: sixpenceee: Letter from a trapped coal miner saying goodbye to his wife, Tennessee 1902. His name was Jacob Vowell.

just-tea-thanks: venom1977: Take a moment to read this so you can fully understand. How it all started, and how we got here. (Unfortunately, the people that could learn something by reading this likely won’t bother). Did you know this? Aug 14, 2016- Colin Kaepernick “sits” for the national anthem…..and no one noticed. Aug 20th, 2016- Colin again “sits”, and again, no one noticed. Aug 26th, 2016- Colin “sits” and this time he is met with a level of vitriol unseen against an athlete. Even the future President of the United States took shots at him while on the campaign trail. Colin went on to explain his protest had NOTHING to with the military, but he felt it hard to stand for a flag that didn’t treat people of color fairly. Then on on Aug 30th, 2016 Nate Boyer, a former Army Green Beret turned NFL long snapper, penned an open letter to Colin in the Army Times. In it he expressed how Colin’s sitting affected him. Then a strange thing happened. Colin was able to do what most Americans to date have not… He listened. In his letter, Mr. Boyer writes: “I’m not judging you for standing up for what you believe in. It’s your inalienable right. What you are doing takes a lot of courage, and I’d be lying if I said I knew what it was like to walk around in your shoes. I’ve never had to deal with prejudice because of the color of my skin, and for me to say I can relate to what you’ve gone through is as ignorant as someone who’s never been in a combat zone telling me they understand what it’s like to go to war. Even though my initial reaction to your protest was one of anger, I’m trying to listen to what you’re saying and why you’re doing it.” Mr. Boyer goes on to write “There are already plenty people fighting fire with fire, and it’s just not helping anyone or anything. So I’m just going to keep listening, with an open mind. I look forward to the day you’re inspired to once again stand during our national anthem. I’ll be standing right there next to you.” Empathy and understanding was shown by Mr. Boyer………and Mr. Kaepernick reciprocated. Colin invited Nate to San Diego where the two had a 90 minute discussion and Nate proposed Colin kneel instead of sit. But why kneel? In a military funeral, after the flag is taken off the casket of the fallen military member, it is smartly folded 13 times and then presented to the parents, spouse or child of the fallen member by a fellow service member while KNEELING. The two decided that kneeling for the flag would symbolize his reverence for those that paid the ultimate sacrifice while still allowing Colin to peacefully protest the injustices he saw. Empathy, not zealotry under the guise of patriotism, is the only way meaningful discussion can be had. Mr. Kaepernick listened to all of you that say he disrespects the military and extended an olive branch to find a peace. When will America listen to him? We can all learn from this backstory. The truth often lies in the middle. Seek to learn the opposing side’s point. FUCKING THANK YOU!

roquentine19: darthmelyanna: ekjohnston: violent-darts: fishcustardandthecumberbeast: lazarusgirl: secretninjachild: #can we just appreciate the fact that the Queen agreed to be a BOND GIRL just for one night? What I think is totally awesome is that Daniel Craig said that the Queen was supposed to look up straight away, but she improvised the letter writing and completely blanked him, so the awkward standing there was completely realisitic. The Queen ignored James Bond because she was ACTING. She ain’t called the Queen for nothing, kids. I remember watching this live and thinking, ‘that’s not the Queen, no way.’ Then she turned around and HOLY FUCK! THAT’S THE ACTUAL QUEEN!  And that’s why the 2012 Opening Ceremony will forever be my favourite. My favourite thing is that you can tell Craig is, underneath the stoic Bondness, going EEEEE EEEEEE EEEEEE I AM ACTING WITH THE QUEEN EEEEEE I AM BEING BOND WITH THE ACTUAL FUCKING QUEEN NO OTHER BONDS GOT TO DO THIS EEEEE.  I feel this is also a realistic feeling for Bond in this moment so really excellent method Mr Craig.  Also, she made them change the helicopter they were going to use because she knew it was the wrong type of helicopter. ALSO they brought her the script for approval and she was all “Cool, can I play me?” and they were all “Um…yes?” because originally they were going to cast for the part. The Queen’s knowledge of all things vehicular is always worth a reblog. There is so much to love about all of this. : good evening your Majesty roquentine19: darthmelyanna: ekjohnston: violent-darts: fishcustardandthecumberbeast: lazarusgirl: secretninjachild: #can we just appreciate the fact that the Queen agreed to be a BOND GIRL just for one night?
