For some odd reason, I cannot reblog your LINK POST response as a TEXT POST. Not to mention, GIFs can’t be uploaded to link posts, GIFS (or any image for that matter) has to be linked.

It’s too much of a hassle to create a new thread because I can’t upload GIFs.

So to sum it up, don’t reblog threads as link posts. It’s not pretty, and they get long and ugly. Just don’t do it, please?

If you’re mobile and you can’t reblog as a text post, I can wait til you get to a comp.

Scripture tells us that we shall not oppress a stranger, for we know the heart of a stranger – we were strangers once, too.

My fellow Americans, we are and always will be a nation of immigrants. We were strangers once, too. And whether our forebears were strangers who crossed the Atlantic, or the Pacific, or the Rio Grande, we are here only because this country welcomed them in, and taught them that to be an American is about something more than what we look like, or what our last names are, or how we worship. What makes us Americans is our shared commitment to an ideal – that all of us are created equal, and all of us have the chance to make of our lives what we will.

That’s the country our parents and grandparents and generations before them built for us. That’s the tradition we must uphold. That’s the legacy we must leave for those who are yet to come.


President Barack Obama ended his announcement on immigration reform on this powerful note. You can read the full text of his speech at the Guardian US. 

Suffering has been stronger than all other teaching, and has taught me to understand what your heart used to be. I have been bent and broken, but - I hope - into a better shape.
