"Your Honor, years ago I recognized my kinship with all living beings, and I made up my mind that I was not one bit better than the meanest on earth. I said then, and I say now, that while there is a lower class, I am in it, and while there is a criminal element I am of it, and while there is a soul in prison, I am not free."
— Eugene V. Debs

What would happen if we looked up instead of down? If we jumped instead of retreated? If we imagined flying instead of falling and trusted our wings more than gravity? We spend so much time teaching ourselves to swallow pills we have no business swallowing, we forget that we have always had the choice to spit them out.
These simple words are so profound & thought provoking.

I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy
because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless
and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.”

Hi guys! I wanted to inform you about this great thing that is happening!
These smart fellows have devised a way to create cups, straws, mixers, etc that can detect common date rape drugs. This is an amazing idea and it needs funding! The campaign ends in 35 hours and they are a little short on funding. Please, signal boost this or even give a dollar if you can, it’s a great cause and something that will really change the world!
Only 28 hours left! Check this out and spread the word!
donate or signal boost, they still have about a fifth to go!
IF YOUDONT REBLOG YOU SUCK
Hey! This is pretty awesome, so I thought I’d share here. Even if you can’t donate, signal boosting the fuck out of this is important!
We were outside, in someone’s backyard. The ground was covered with snow. The backyard was expansive, wide and stretching. I got the feeling that maybe we were on the edge of the suburbs and the countryside. We were throwing a party or small gathering, beers and mittens and smoky breath. I got the sudden urge to look up at the sky, which was completely riddled with stars, and saw a shooting star blaze a trail through the darkness, watching as its tail disappeared. Just as I was about to finish making a wish, another one shot across the sky and I was so happy.
One of the more helpful and insightful things I’ve seen about depression/suicide in the last couple of days.

Being a “product of their times” is no excuse. Never let someone off the hook for bigotry.
