Memes, Ally, and Sweden: @Pactpert JAPAN TRIED TO SURRENDER BEFORE THE ATOMIC BOMBINGS Japan approached the Soviet Union in mid July 1945 with a view to using the Soviet Union as an intermediary to a negotiated peace with the US and Britain. Japan proposed sending PrinceKonoye as an emissary to the Soviet Union to open discussions with the Soviets about acting as intermediaries. The Japanese Imperial Council was trying to end the war on their terms. Among these were: • The Emperor would remain on the throne. • There would be no war crimes trials. • There would be no occupation of the home islands. That the first of these was accepted by the Allies after the surrender is generally given as the single reason that unconditional surrender was unacceptable to Japan and hence that the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were unnecessary. The other conditions were clearly unacceptable to the Allies. The Japanese were trying to find intermediaries ( Switzerland, Sweden, the USSR) to help negotiate an armistice. The US knew of these attempts through Magic and Ultra decyphers of communiques that Japanese diplomats were sent and sending. Failing to get an armistice on their terms, the Japanese military hoped to inflict such horrendous casualties on the US that the US would be willing to negotiate something less than unconditional surrender.

Baller Alert, Donald Glover, and Golden Globes: Ballerific Fashion: Donald Glover Wearing $53K Gucci Mink Fur Coat @baller alert BallerificFashion: Donald Glover Wearing $53K Gucci Mink Fur Coat - blogged by: @peachkyss - ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ DonaldGlover, also known as ChildishGambino, is starting the year off in a fashionable way. A few weeks ago, the actor-producer-rapper won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a TV Series. Now, he is taking his style to the next level for his Wired Magazine feature. The Atlanta star was spotted wearing a $53,000 Gucci flower intarsia mink fur coat, Ksubi jeans, and a white Cos button up top, styled by his longtime stylist OloriSwank. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Gucci flower intarsia mink fur coat is a long mink fur coat in natural black with hand-applied flowers. The intarsia is an intricate process that inserts separate colored pieces of mink to form the full pattern. It takes approximately 110 hours to complete. The inside of the coat is enhanced by an embroidered tiger, a recurring theme in Alessandro Michele’s collections, here the tiger is shown with the evolved “Blind for Love.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Outside of his fashion, Glover also opens up to Wired magazine about music. In the article, Donald Glover talks about how kids today do not truly appreciate music and-or concerts. After holding a concert that sold out in six minutes, Glover added two more shows to accommodate his fans. However, there was one catch…. Phones had to be surrendered before entering. The goal was to have fans actually appreciate the moment. “Today, kids’ idea of going to a concert is proving that they are there on Snapchat or Instagram. We wanted to give them a complete show and have their attention.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Are you feeling his latest look? Would you splurge on a $53K Gucci Mink Fur Coat?

Being Alone, Memes, and Cracked: SUCOD I FOUND WHAT I LOST “And in sujood, I found what I lost” The other day, I experienced sujood in a way I never have before. It was like returning home after an extended period of time. It was like crying in your mother’s lap, only a thousand times more soothing. After waiting hours to be alone, I finally got home from work and rushed to make wudhu, planning fancy ways to convince Allah to accept my plans. But the thing is, it’s unbelievably easy to convince others that you’re okay. That you are too strong to break. That tears aren’t worth your time and that your patience will save the day yet again. But how could I convince the One that put this pain in my heart to begin with? The One who already knows the degree to which I am breaking on the inside. This smile, these empty words of reassurance, they can’t fool Him. Not even two seconds in, all I could say was, “I surrender to You. I admit it, Allah, I’m weak and I can’t do this on my own. I give up. Make me content with Your will because I have no control. I can’t change this, any of it. I know You know exactly what I’m going through and exactly how to solve it, but You’re not doing it for a reason. So please, help me understand, help me be content with Your plans for me.” I made sujood, thinking it would be just another conversation with Allah. Thinking I’d word my pain in a way that earns me a solution from Him. But as soon as I confessed to my helplessness, it felt as if all walls of my heart just broke and nothing could stop the tears from gushing. I didn’t know what to say anymore, all I knew is that I didn’t want to lift my head up. “If I lift my head up”, I thought, “the pain will return.“ And then I realized how vulnerable and in dire need of my Creator I really am. I don’t have the energy to resist any longer, I just want to accept His plan. I thought I’d convince Allah, but it seems as if He has convinced me instead. And if it took me a few days of hell in this life to realize it, I am more than grateful for my pain. Someday I’ll understand why this is happening to me. But if each time my heart is broken by this world, the cracks are filled with Your love, then I am at peace being in pieces. From unknown brother

Being Alone, Memes, and The Fall: You don't understand what I'm doing now, but someday you will. Jesus You may have heard the saying that when God calls you to it, He will bring you through it! When Jesus calls us to do something, He expects us to walk by faith and not by sight. (2 Corinthians 5:7) We do not need to know everything to do something He is calling us to do! One day we will understand why things happened the way that they did. This excerpt from the song "Trust" by Hillsong Young and Free puts this into perspective for me. "I don't know how the story ends But I know that You finished it I'll close my eyes and just let go And fall into my only Hope There's safety in the falling When I surrender fully I put all my hope in You Jesus I will trust You I will trust You I know You never fail I will trust You The only thing I know Is God you're in control In every little detail You are close I'll never be alone Here in the unknown The power of Your Presence Fills my soul Jesus I will trust you" Faith, hope, and trust in Him are what He requires from you-Jesus has a great plan for your life! ❤️ •❤️• Bible angelsong222 God Love Redeemed Saved Christian Christianity Pray Chosen jesus lord truth praying christ jesuschrist godislove word yeshua angels cross faith inspiration jesussaves worship yaweh holyspirit praise spiritualwarfare jesuslovesyou
