Manchester, UK bombing at the Ariana concert with 22 dead including children and nearly 60 injured with countless missing.
Marawi, Phillipines has been taken over by the Mautegroup and people are being held, told they will be “taken care of” if they can’t prove they are Muslim.
Bangkok, Thailand had a bomb go off in a hospital injuring 24 people.
Homs, Syria had suicide car bombs which have killed 4 and hurt 2 dozen.
Today is another one of those days where the world just feels a little bit more heavier. To anyone whose in any of these places, stay safe and look after yourselves and one another, let us know if there’s anything we can possibly do. To everyone else, don’t allow this fear to take over, instead show that love can be the light in all that’s dark.
Sending love to everyone❤️

Nicknamed Dead Children’s Playground, this eerie playground is situated right in the middle of Maple Hill Cemetery. Non-surprisingly, it’s claimed that this ghostly playground is haunted by the many children buried in the one-hundred-acre cemetery in which is it situated. People have often reported hearing disembodied laughs and chants of children as the swings randomly move; the playground is said to be most active with obscure occurrences between 10:00PM and 3:00AM. Legend says that a number of children were abducted in the 1960′s and their slain bodies were dumped in the area of Dead Children’s Playground.
Now hear me out. I’m not saying we shouldn’t make any more World War II movies. And I’m not saying we can’t have movies that portray Nazis in the villainous role they require, earned, and deserve. All I’m saying is that maybe we shouldn’t, for a while.
Nazis have essentially become the titular Alien from the Alien movies. We’ve seen it so many times, its portrayal growing more and more reductive with each installment, that we’ve reached the point where we’re no longer afraid of it. The Alien isn’t scary anymore. Once you drag the monster out of the shadows of your bedroom, shine a bright light on it, and make it dance, you forget what it feels like to be sitting alone in the dark with it watching you from a distorted mass of shapes that project nothing but malice and dread despite never fully congealing into a recognizable figure.
Today, we take for granted the amount of time it took the majority of the world to realize that. Many countries, the United States included, didn’t see Nazis as the overt monsters nearly a century of hindsight has taught us they were all along. Nazism was vogue, even in America, where the well-educated and well-moneyed would spend evenings extolling the virtues of eugenics, and suggesting appeasement was the way to deal with Hitler, because he “really didn’t seem that bad.”
Most people reacted with incredulous disbelief at the rumors of death camps, prompting people to actually break in to camps to collect evidence, because yes, “pics or it didn’t happen” absolutely extended to the Holocaust. We had to be convinced that Nazis were truly evil, and decades of casting them as cartoonish villains in popular culture has softened their evil to the point where it’s almost become abstracted. When watching Inglourious Basterds, it’s easy to forget to connect the bizarrely affable Hans Landa to this (holy hell graphic and disturbing) image of a wheelbarrow full of dead Jewish children, and fucking nobody is thinking about that real, soul-crushing shit while they’re waiting for Nazi Zombies to load.
