Homeless man who found New Jersey bombs is given apartment and job prospects

One man who was particularly moved was Donald Goncalves, a 52-year-old, lifelong resident of Elizabeth.

“I care a lot about my town,” he said in an interview on Friday. “I used to be a commuter to New York myself. It touched me in a very profound way. How could I take what could have been a devastating moment and turn it into something positive?”

He was so frustrated, “you never gave us a chance.”

“That’s because we got off on the wrong foot,” I fight back.

“That doesn’t matter,” his voice got a little louder, “we get under each other’s skin so much that it brings out the best, the best out of you and me. We don’t ever fight about the petty things, we fight about the things that matter. I don’t ever have to pretend around you, it’s all so natural, and enticing, and pure. You gave everyone else a chance that fucked you over, but me, you never gave me the time of day.”

I didn’t know what to say because he was right, but maybe I just didn’t have the energy for someone to break me again. You know you kind of get tired after a while. Maybe it was better that things just stayed the way they were.

He filled the empty silence, “look we’re good for each other, and you know that - we’re good for each other.”

Pride of Australia: How a Perth homeless woman saved a man’s life

Mr Sumer was stabbed in a frenzied, unprovoked attack in a Perth carpark last May, coming to the aid of a woman arguing with a man.

He had met the couple minutes earlier at a nearby restaurant — and had even bought them a round of drinks — when a blonde woman ran by yelling: “He’s going to kill her.”

Mr Sumer didn’t hesitate, but if it wasn’t for Zeda Connolly, a homeless woman who leapt to his aid, he wouldn’t have survived what happened next.

lightgirlification  asked:

Is it bad I don't like ep.12? To me it's like they are rehashing old plot points to make it seem clever. I know we have the hope episode still so we can only wonder, but I wanna write my own ending to the series afterit. Is that wrong if me to do so?

Your personal feelings on the series are your own and just as valid as anyone else’s. I think to some degree everyone interprets or re-interprets things in ways that satisfy them.

The issue is if you take the attitude that you know best for everyone and badmouth the people who work hard to make it or people who feel differently than you.

As opinionated as I am, when it comes down to it, DR doesn’t exclusively belong to any of us. We can be disappointed or upset about developments, of course, but we don’t get to control canon.

So if you want to make your own ending for you and likeminded people for closure, go for it! Just don’t harass anyone else or tout it as “the true ending” or anything.
