27 January: International Holocaust Remembrance Day

On this day we honour and remember the approximately 22 million innocent souls who fell victims to hate racism and prejudice crimes, nearly 7.5 million of which were slaughtered for being who they were.

  • 6 million Jews (1.5 million of which were children)
  • 1.5 million Romani
  • 270 000 People with disabilities (be it physical or mental)
  • 55 000 gay people (approximately)
  • 14 million civilians, caught in the crossfire, famine and ugliness of war from all over Europe.
  • 12 000 Jehova’s Witnesses (approximately) of which 2 500 - 5 000 killed.

This day is an important reminder of what once was and what should never be again.

May their rest be more peaceful than their life and may their memory be a blessing.

Never Forget.

Questions for the people on property brothers:

why do you need so many bedrooms?

why do you need a home theater? what’s wrong with you 60 inch tv, or an actual movie theater?

is your wife, the person putting in half on all this mortgage, really not allowed in your “man cave”?

why did you apply to property brothers if you “don’t want to do a renovation”? have you seen this show?

Are you really surprised when the move-in-ready house is twice your budget? have you seen this show?

if you’re so worried about the budget, why do you keep asking them to do extra stuff?

why aren’t you and your partner on the same page about having kids? why are you hashing out this very personal decision on national tv?

how are a barista and a failing stand up comic (or whatever other combo of low-paying jobs) able to afford a 500,000 dollar house? is your home movie theater really just some kind of drug den?

why don’t any of you prank the property brothers by insisting they build you a sex dungeon.

anonymous asked:

How do you think the RFA +Saeran&V would react if MC had a hot best friend who was really bitter and bitchy to her all the time? My friend has been like this alot lately and its making me feel pretty shitty...haha.

oh no :( don’t worry I’ll (have the RFA and them) stand up for you! Please don’t be sad, I love you anon; you deserve better <3


  • he never really liked MC’s friend
  • she always seemed to put her down
  • like one time they were all sitting in a cafe just chatting about trivial things when MC decided to mention that Yoosung had just reached a new level in LOLOL 
  • but her friend decided that it wasn’t her turn to talk and told her that she should think about things that were more interesting
  • MC laughed awkwardly at her words and noted that “she’s always joking like that”
  • she wasn’t joking MC, she was really, really trying to hurt your feelings
  • but MC didn’t understand that because they’d been friends since elementary school and was used to her harsh words
  • now, just like last time, they were hanging out together again
  • MC had told him not to come, but he didn’t want to let her hurt MC
  • he wanted to protect whatever dignity MC still held in front of this bitch of a friend
  • “Sorry guys, I need to go to the bathroom really quick.”
  • “Jeez MC, this is the second time. Why don’t you just wear a diaper? You’re a like a stupid baby anyways.”
  • “Ahaha.. yes I know, sorry. It’ll be quick”
  • “You’ll be lucky just to not pee your pants”
  • Yoosung had had enough
  • MC was in shock, what was happening?
  • “Who’re you to talk like that? I’m her best friend, you’re just a loser who can’t find a better girl.”
  • “Even if I am a loser, I don’t sink to the level as low as you.”
  • Yoosung pulled MC away and he stomped towards the mall bathroom


  • he’d never really cared about who MC hung out with - as long as it wasn’t with another guy, he was cool
  • but sometimes he wondered who her friends were because… he’d witness MC get a little sad whenever a certain person messaged her
  • he didn’t know who it was but he remembered the icon that popped up on her phone when she got a message
  • “MC, who’re you talking to?”
  • “Ah, just a friend.” she turned away from him
  • what was she hiding?
  • he went over and knelt down in front of her
  • was she crying?
  • “MC, please tell me what’s wrong.”
  • she timidly handed him her phone
  • he looked at the messages and his heart broke
  • “You know, you should be a better friend. I told you that I needed 1 million KRW but you only sent me 500 000. I needed that money. How do you expect me to pay back my loans now? You’re really the worst.”
  • “I’m so sorry, I was a little broke this month, it was my mom’s birthday and-”
  • “Whatever. I don’t need you to be my friend anymore. Just fuck off you cheapskate”
  • “No, please, I promise I’ll send in more this month…”
  • “Get out.”
  • he could not believe it
  • what kind of friend was that?
  • “Zen, what do I do? I don’t have enough… I don’t want to lose her as a friend…”
  • “MC, you don’t need her. She’s not your friend, she just treats you like a money tree.”
  • “B-but…”
  • “MC, you know better than to hold on to someone who doesn’t care about you anymore”
  • he deleted that person’s contact info and sent her a little private note himself “stay away from MC, or else I can’t be responsible for what happens next.”


  • it was while MC and her went shopping did they bump into one of MC’s childhood friends
  • “Hey MC! I see you’re still rocking that disgusting sweater of yours hahaaha”
  • actually, we just bought that yesterday
  • “Haha yea, my style just doesn’t change. How’ve you been?”
  • “Same old same old, still dating that rich guy. He just doesn’t give up. Anyway, who’s this? Your new friend?”
  • “Ah, right, sorry, this is Jaehee, she’s my girlfriend. Isn’t she so cute?”
  • “Ugh, cute? Well, I always knew that you had bad taste but… MC, really?”
  • well that was rude
  • “Excuse me, may I please have a word with you?”
  • “Um, yea, I guess.”
  • “I just wanted to kindly let you know that whoever MC decides to go out with is her choice. Whatever she decides to wear is her choice. And quite contrary to what you’ve stated, I find that her sweaters really compliment her innocent, sweet, personality. Whereas your clothes give off the disgusting vibe of a whore. Now, if you’d please excuse me, MC and I have got some coffee machines to look at.”


  • he felt bad for neglecting MC due to his work but he always thought it was okay because she had her own friends and also the RFA to count on
  • but sometimes he worried about MC
  • when he touched her arm in some places, she flinched from pain
  • at night he peeked at her arms and he noticed a few bruises
  • what did MC do when she was out with her friends?
  • so one day, he followed her out undercover
  • he was surprised when she met up with a guy
  • surprised and really jealous
  • he had wanted to stomp over and tell the guy off but then he found out where the source of her bruises came from
  • the guy gave her a hard slap on the arm as she greeted him quietly
  • MC pointed at an ice cream shop as if to tell him that she wanted to go there
  • he nodded and proceeded to grab her wrist
  • okay now Jumin was pissed
  • not only did he grab her roughly with no regard to her delicate frame, but he held onto her so hard that his knuckles were turning white
  • you know who else’s knuckles were turning white? Jumin’s.
  • he followed them from behind, speeding up with every second that went by
  • Jumin heard him talk obnoxiously about how he thought MC should loose some weight and not eat ice cream anymore
  • one more word and you’re done for, mister.
  • he was close enough now, so he ripped that guys hand off of MC and punched him right in the face
  • “Only MC gets to decide whether or not she wants to lose weight, and only I get to hold MC like that. Don’t ever let me see you again.”


  • he had whined and whined and whined about wanting to hang out with MC’s friends since forever but now that he was actually there out with them, he regretted every thing he ever said
  • most of her friends were nice, but there was this one friend who seemed to hold a living grudge on her
  • every time MC spoke, she interrupted and disregarded MC’s opinions
  • MC wanted to get ramen? well apparently that girl hated ramen 
  • MC wanted to take a look at the stuffed animals shop? well not when she was there, no way. she always dragged the others to the store opposite to the one MC had wanted to go into
  • “Hey, why don’t we go watch a movie? It’s still early and we can get half price since we’ve got six of us”
  • that girl was about to object again but Seven was already pulling MC and the other girls ahead towards the theatre
  • she got to pick the movie and she was even shameless enough to tell MC to buy all the snacks
  • “You have hands and money too so why don’t you just go buy it yourself?”
  • “It’s okay Seven, I don’t mind.”
  • “Yea, but I do.”
  • “MC, your boyfriend is a total drag. Just dump him already.” she spat 
  • “And you know what? I know that I’m a total ‘drag’ but at least I’m not as much as a bitch as you are. I don’t order my friends around, and I don’t ignore what other people say. So excuse me for being a drag, but I think I’m done here. MC, if you ever meet up with this ass again I’m actually going to snap her in half.”


  • he hated people who harmed others for the joy of it
  • it was a well known fact, so when he overheard MC’s friend planning something a little less funny and a lot more mean, he decided that he had to do something
  • he knew that MC had a bad friend, but he didn’t say anything because MC never complained
  • he just felt that he was in no place to interfere with her personal relationships, but that was before he heard of the “prank”
  • somehow, he got the other people to mix up MC and the friend
  • so instead of MC getting freezing cold water dumped on her at her birthday party, it was the other person
  • “Me”
  • “omg Saeran! I can’t believe you-” MC said, trying hard to bite back her laughter
  • “Listen, you, I don’t want to see you again. It’s enough that you’re constantly saying rude things to MC, but planning something like this on her birthday? That was the last straw. Get out of my house.”


  • Jihyun didn’t always see MC’s friends
  • it wasn’t that he didn’t want to but he just felt that they should still have their own personal space despite being lovers and all
  • he’d always been kind of a peacekeeper, protecting everyone he loved
  • but he didn’t know that MC was that type of person too
  • she was hiding her feelings about her friends
  • she didn’t let him know how bad they made her feel about herself… about dating someone who was blind
  • MC always backed up V whenever they made fun of him, but she just couldn’t reiterate that when it came to something about her - the way she dressed, her body weight, her make-up skills, everything.
  • it was an accident that he found out
  • if she could, she would hide it away from him forever
  • but it slipped out when V asked her if she wanted to go to a really good buffet Jumin had suggested
  • “Ah, no, I can’t, my friends told me that I’m too fat compared to-”
  • shit she wasn’t supposed to say that
  • “Wait no, that’s not what they said haha, sorry I mean that they told me to eat more vegetables because uhm…”
  • she held back her tears, she couldn’t go on
  • “I’m g-going to the bathroom” her lip quivered, she needed to get out, to get away from Jihyun immediately
  • he heard the pain in her voice
  • “MC, are you okay? Don’t go, tell me what’s wrong. Are you crying?”
  • he got off the couch and stepped towards her 
  • she ran into the bathroom “it’s nothing, don’t mind me. I just got some dust in my eyes”
  • “MC tell me, please! If someone’s hurting you… if I’m hurting you…”
  • “It’s not you, V, it’s… my friends. Sometimes they say mean words but-”
  • “MC, don’t listen to them. You’re beautiful the way you are. You’re most amazing person in the world - in my world. Please don’t ever forget that. If your friends are putting you down, then ignore them. You have me, you have the RFA, we’ll always support you no matter what. Don’t waste your tears on useless people. I’ll always be here to protect you, MC.”

ahh sorry this was a little longer than I intended. But I hope you feel better after reading this Anon! Please don’t listen to people who say mean things. I’ll be here if you ever need to talk <3

Greek freedom fighter, May 19 is the day of remembrance of the Pontian Greek Genocide (1916-1923). Records kept mainly by priests show a minimum 350,000 Pontian Greeks exterminated by Turkish troops and Kurdish para-militaries. Other sources including foreign missionaries mention 500,000 deaths, most through deportation and forced marches into the Anatolian desert. Greek cities (Pafra, Samsous, Kerasous, and Trapezous) endured massacres and deportations that destroyed their populations.
