No such things as a bad dog. It’s a bad owner.
Rev Sekou kneeled between protesters and police and prayed, then was thrown into a police vehicle with blood smears all inside of it.
That sounds a lot like water-boarding at the end except they left out the drowning
Checked my facebook to see how a friend who is dealing with divorce is doing and see a moms with autistic kids posting this:
I learned about something today called the Mammalian Diving Reflex, which essentially is where the systems in our body slow down when we have a sudden exposure to cold water on our faces. I wondered if anyone had tried having a child with an ASD tantrum put cold water (maybe a cold pack, a cold washcloth) on their face during a tantrum to see if it calmed them at all? I’d like to try this with my son. Clearly I’m not going to throw a bucket of ice water in his face but if I can get a cold washcloth on his face I’d like to try that. What I’ve read is that the face being submerged in the water is best/most effective but I can’t imagine getting my kid to dunk his face in a bowl of ice water while he’s upset, and I’m certainly not going to do it TO him!
At what point do these parents consider it to be abuse? I’m so done. Done with being done when it comes to this shit.
I liked how she used the word tantrum as well.
Haters gonna hate.
1. to clear, as of an accusation; free from guilt or blame; exculpate.
2. to relieve, as from an obligation, duty, or task.
Etymology: from late Middle English < Latin exonerātus (past participle of exonerāre, “to unburden, discharge”), equivalent to ex-, prefix for “out of, without” + oner- (stem of onus), “a burden”.
I thought I saw Lauren Hill reading spoken word in Ferguson as a post somewhere. At the time, i thought i have to emotionally prepare myself for this. Now I can’t find it.
Just read through ALL of this…these people are INCREDIBLY organized and have collected almost every piece of information out - and they are asking some amazing questions.
"You know most of those protestors, even most of the peaceful one, we’re not even from Ferguson"
Really? That’s soooo crazy! It’s almost as if Ferguson isn’t part of a greater metro area, or even more to the point; it’s almost as if police brutality and institutional racism exists outside of a single Missouri town.

I get this joke.
This time last year I was unemployed, broke, and suicidal.
Today, I just got the keys to my first house.
Give it time.every time I see this, I reblog it.
Dude, this time two years ago I was jobless, unmedicated, overwhelmed and suicidal. Today I’m trying not to cry while I am at work due to sensory overload. Sometimes… it doesn’t get better. It just gets different.
Deducecanoe I don’t understand why you felt the need to give people real talk on this post. This is passive aggressive nihilism. I was trying to spread a little hope to balance of all the heavy social justice issues. Guess what? My life is fucked up enough that I figured out that it gets different all on my own and I’m pretty sure over half the people reblog this also know that. They reblog it, like I did, because they choose to believe that with time there will be change and that belief allows them to make it through some rough shit.
