if you’re an adult that works with kids of any age do me two quick favors:
learn the symptoms of adhd and autism and their presentation in all genders. you dont have to be an expert, just know a bit about it beyond popular knowledge.
learn to recognize signs a kid is being abused in any way. beyond bruises and black eyes. learn to recognize the fearful apologies and hesitation. do some research.
do me these two favors and save tens of lives.
that’s no exageration either. after teaching my mom basics about mental disorders, she started spotting neurodivergent kids in her classrooms and helped them get help. almost every child she’s helped has been diagnosed with the disorder she predicted and none of them would have been diagnosed at a young age without her help. knowing this stuff matters.
learn. save lives. don’t make kids grow up in fear of their symptoms and family.
I wanted to make this post for fans of all four groups who may not know that these fancams exist and who would enjoy seeing them. These stages not being aired does not mean one or any of the groups were “played dirty” as I keep seeing people say. They were literally not scheduled to be aired and were part of the show for those who were in attendance at the live event.
No one has idea how much it hurts in my chest to see the Earth being destroyed little by little. I just wanted to have power enough to make some difference and save all the beautiful lives in the forest, in the sea and everything else.
“You think it’s going to be much longer?” you sighed, holding your phone with one hand and a fork in the other. “You said you might be here today. You know I could help. It’s just a couple states away.”
“Sam and I are getting pretty close, sweetheart,” Dean said. “Plus, you’ve got a broken leg, how would you drive?”
“I’d figure something out.”
“I’m sure you would,” Dean laughed, “but I’d rather not risk that. Seriously, though, I love you, Y/N. I’m sorry I couldn’t call earlier to tell you I wouldn’t be there.”
“Don’t worry about it, I didn’t really do anything special just in case. We can do that later. And I love you, too,” you smiled. “Alright, I’m distracting you enough. Go save some lives, hon. And happy Valentine’s Day!”
“Happy Valentine’s Day, baby. I’ll talk to you as soon as I can.”
“Stay safe,” you said, ending the call. “Well, it looks like we’re having dinner together, Roxy. This steak is too good to reheat it later.”
A furball of hair happily trotted toward you, tail wagging behind her. You blew on the candles you’d lit up earlier and reached over for the plate that was supposed to be Dean’s, setting it down on the floor carefully.
“Just don’t make sure you don’t break the plate, it’s Dean’s favorite set and he wouldn’t be happy with it uncomplete. Also, he technically doesn’t know about you yet.”
I am so embarrassed. This disgusts me. The “clique” attacking others and fighting with people in The Chainsmokers comment section after they told a clique member to “fuck off” for creating a meme about them saying “what was that?” After Tyler and Josh’s AMA performance. I don’t want to be know to be part of this “extra” group. I am so upset that this is what the “clique” has come to and how other people see it. Call me extra all you want but to some people this music is extremely important and saved lives. Let me get this clear though. YOU ARE NOT PART OF THE CLIQUE IF YOU DISCRIMINATE AGAINST SOMEONES MENTAL ILLNESS OR ISSUES. I saw people in the comments with tøp inspired usernames telling people to kill themselves for being extra. I wanted to cry. I am embarrassed and all those clique members should be ashamed of themselves to say that they even have the privilege to listen to this music that saved thousands of peoples lives. |-/
