I'm just a simple 19 year old girl who likes way too many things to fit into a description. Basically, I like anything that can hold my attention for a little bit, and my current obsessions change hourly. Have fun figuring out what they are, and DFTBA ;)

Parenting, you’re doing it right.
I can only hope to be this type of parent.
These parents make my heart melt
That last one really got me. That’s such a good idea, and bless his dad for wanting his son to not feel left out. All his friends were probably like “Look at all my candy” and Fletcher was like “LOOK AT ALL MY TOYS HAHA I GOT TOYS”
You know why I absolutely love this moment?
Because Emma is upset. She misses her family, she misses her home and she’s crying. And she’s heartbroken because she thinks she’ll never see them again. And yet, the moment Hook smiles at her she just can’t help but smile back.
He makes her feel good, even in the worst moments. He’s there for her, he lifts her up. And Emma hasn’t had that before in her life, not before Henry. Not someone who stuck around. And he just makes her smile with one look even while she’s crying.
And Hook? Hook is happy because Emma’s admission of home brought back her magic. It made her whole again and he loves that. He wants the best for her because she means the world to him. And he hasn’t had that in a very long time, someone to love and care about and be proud of. And he’s just so proud of her, so in awe of her all the time he can’t help but smile when she succeeds, even if it’s while she’s sad. Because he knows her admitting that Storybrooke, that Henry and Snow and Charming are her family and her home, was a big deal for her. And that allowed her magic to come back. And that will allow her to go home.
These two just make my heart melt in moments like this. It’s so quiet, so little. A smile for a smile. And they can’t help it. And that’s what makes it so beautiful.
-burn them all to the ground
- sacred museums telling the actual history of slavery not glorifying the lives of slave owners
-genetic testing/ ancestry mapping sites for Black Americans
NO, DON’T BURN THEM. People need to see all of our history. The good, and especially the bad!! How would we learn without it?!
But no, seriously, don’t destroy history. Take the holocaust for example. There are still concentration and death camps that are still standing. They are standing to act as a reminder to everybody that what happened there was terrible and we should never forget it. Field trips full of kids are taken there by their local schools to help them learn about the gruesome history. Some people even go there to find closure for what happened to them or to a loved one. It stands to help people learn, complete an important pilgrimage, or to help people never forget the intensity of it all.
EVERY BIT OF HISTORY IS IMPORTANT. DO NOT BE IGNORANT AND WANT IT WIPPED AWAY LIKE IT IS A STAIN. BECAUSE IT IS A STAIN IN THIS COUNTRY’S HISTORY, AND WE NEED TO REMEMBER IT AS SUCH.
Also, I agree with the museums and the idea of finding long lost ancestors. That is a great idea and would actually benefit the entire nation!! But wouldn’t it be more powerful if a family of any race or color takes their children to this spot of history and were able to show them the grandeur of the building and the rich lifestyle that was lived back then? It is then that the parents could tell the children and show them the extremely dark side behind it all. A lesson could be made, which is you can shoot for your goals and try to be as successful as you want, but never ever use human beens as your stepping stones. Treat them with respect and never force them into situations that you would never want. If you do so, your success would be built upon your hard and honorable work, not upon suffering and brutality.
