US students will be able to shield themselves during school shootings with the latest in body armour, the Bodyguard Blanket
http://goo.gl/WwvECT
Are fucking kidding me? I have been sitting at home and constantly watching the news after the events of yesterday. For those of you who are wondering, I am a junior at REYNOLDS HIGH SCHOOL! I was there when the shooter kept running in the halls trying to open the doors and get in. I was there in the dark praying and crying while my librarian kept saying ” they’ll have to kill me before they touch my kids” I have known her for three years, her determination to keep us safe broke her heart. Seeing this, that little children need protection in school. Are we sending kids to a battlefield? I have three little brothers ranging from 5-10, and still people have the nerve to speak about the second amendment? Really? I can’t even type anymore. I’m so disgusted and frustrated. When will you realize that it’s important to have gun control? When a shooter is pointing a gun at your child? Is that when you’ll realize that guns aren’t something to be kept around. People say it’s a free country but honesty, this country is more oppressed and diseased than any other country.

Show me ONE instance where gun control and gun free zones prevented school shootings.



Let me tell you guys a story. In 1996, in a little town in Australia called Port Arthur, a gunman killed 35 and injured 23. This place was a tourist attraction, with plenty of visitors and locals going about their business. 35 people died.That’s 35 marriages, anniversaries, birthdays or uni degrees. 35 people left Port Arthur in body bags.At the time, we had a pretty conservative government, and the Prime Minister at the time (in hindsight) was kind of a dick. But within two weeks of the shooting, Howard instituted a massive reform and buyback of all firearms. 
But it must be a statistical flaw, you say, there weren’t that many massacres before 1996, right? No, WRONG. In the eighteen years leading up to Port Arthur, there had been 13 mass shootings. 
But April, you ask, this couldn’t possibly have worked could it? Wouldn’t it only have reduced the mass shootings? WRONG.Since 1996, there have been ZERO mass shootings. That’s right, ZERO. FUCKING ZILCH. There have been scattered homicides, however:
How many schools have been raided and children murdered? NONE.How many film buffs have been murdered in their seats? NONE.How many innocent lives have been lost to the barrel of a gun? NONE.
On top of this, homicides involving the use of guns, and youth suicide involving the use of guns has declined dramatically, by up to 60%
Australia, however much the environment tries to kill you, is a safe haven, and you can walk the streets with 99% assurance that you won’t fall victim to a drive by shooting.
Your move, America.

So my facebook friend just posted this pic with this text….


Well, I just witnessed blatant racial injustice with my own eyes. I was getting in my car after exiting a store when a young black man stumbled past me and collapsed against the store wall. When I got out to see if he was okay, a group of white people came rushing over, one of whom was a 20-something white woman who declared in distress, “I ran a red light and hit him with my car!” People immediately assured her that SHE would be okay, meanwhile the young man is writhing in pain on the ground, pants leg torn, tears running down his face. When the police arrived and the young woman explained what happened, it was suggested to her that maybe the light had been yellow and that the young man had “darted out into the street into her path.” I was floored. I said, “But she just SAID she ran the red light and hit him in the intersection!” 





The police officers then led the young woman away and began talking with her privately in low tones. When the paramedics FINALLY got there I was surprised at the hostility they showed towards the young man. One blonde female EMT (shown in the photo) suggested that he couldn’t be THAT hurt if he was able to walk from the place where he was struck to the sidewalk where he finally collapsed. White bystanders commented several times about “What that poor girl must be going through.” I was the only one who commented on what the young man must be going through, what, with his mangled leg and all. I am absolutely positive that in the end “that poor girl” will be absolved of all wrongdoing and be able to go on her merry way. After all, she just ran a red light and slammed her car into the body of some black kid on a bike, right?And people wonder why black people are so angry and want to break shit.
















friendly reminder that studies have shown that white people do not empathize with Black people and we (including medical personel) also think Black people feel less pain

Lauren Bullock’s “Love Notes”

If my heart is poetry, 
then the last love poem I wrote is a crumpled up memo 
and you are a journal I was hoping to fill my days with until the space ran out.
But I must have cramped my writing hand 
because even muscle memory has forgotten how I used it. 
Were you thinking of her then too?
When I flipped through your pages, 
did you remember her fingerprints on your surface edges? 
Was I just a creased corner 
pointing backwards to the place you saved for her?
And when she broke your heart, did she also crack your spine so you would always fall in her direction? 
I admit 
I never left you open on my night stand 
but I guess you were already stolen in someone else’s secrets and affection.
There’s a reason I stopped using notebooks and pencils.
At least the backspace is relatively painless 
when you enter into a document knowing it’s only temporary. 
And no, I’m not afraid of her ink stains. 
Just my habit to Rorschach their meaning 
into tea leaf and palm line predictions, 
reminders that all stories must have endings, 
because I will always believe 
in the portent of disaster even if it never begins.
So when did I become so bold 
that I scrawled my thoughts in marker 
hoping they would bleed through your body 
and become permanent?
But you marked hers first. 
Said you would always be her diary 
and I guess that just makes me an entry on an off day. 
But see, I don’t care how many libraries there are in the world, 
I still look for you 
when I can’t find the right synonym for beautiful.
When other men touched me, 
I am searching for your plot lines.
Your paper cuts are the first thing I was willing to bleed for, 
in so long.
But I’m not blaming you, 
I’m blaming me.
Because if my heart is poetry, 
then I only want you to remember the lines about love 
lingering like my scent on your t-shirt 
that night you asked me over even though 
we both had to get up early the next morning. 
Do you remember? 
You said you’d put in on later just to be close to me again.
But I’m not trying to be more than your friend, 
nor am I postponing an inevitable end. 
After all, they say if you truly love someone, let them go.
So please know, 
that I am willing to paper crane all your pages 
until they papyrus the sky 
like the stars we’ll finally discover 
when they turn out all the lights.
And I may never be the one who sleeps next to you at night, 
but at least let me be the love letter 
tucked beneath your pillowcase 
to remind you that no matter what, 
you will always, always be worth the read, my love.

U know how in winter it gets so cold and u think u will never be hot again and in summer it gets so hot u think u will never be cold again I think that is how it is with ur feelings like when u r sad u think u will never be happy and when u r happy u think u will never be sad. But u will be hot again and u will be cold again and u will be sad again but most of all u will be happy again
