Why Libraries are Important Now More Than Ever

With Net Neutrality possibly getting the ax very soon, I want people to go to their local Libraries and get a Library Card. 

Why? Because Libraries have and always will be the most reliable source for information and entertainment. If the internet is taken away from low income families or individuals who can’t pay to use the internet, Libraries are the best havens you could ask for. 

You shouldn’t be denied access to information or entertainment just because you can’t pay for it. Give the FCC the middle finger and support your local Library now more than ever before! Because they’re the ones who wouldn’t deny someone based on their social or financial status. 

Go to the Library, explore it’s wonders! 

We got Cuban food and we watched the knicks game and we drank cough syrup and I fell asleep on your chest and I felt like I never wanted to be anywhere else in the world more than right there at that moment. Even though I’ve been taken to the fanciest restaurants and on extravagant trips, not even front row at a Knicks game felt as good. And that’s when I realized that it wasn’t the food and it wasn’t the basketball and it wasn’t because we were sick together. That’s when I realized that no matter what we were doing, I would have felt the same way. Because it was just you, you were what made everything else feel perfect.

3 Signs You Are A Mature Soul:

• wisdom: you know what’s right/wrong for you

• patience: you are happy to see life transform over time, not overnight

• emotional intelligence : you can think about, what you’re thinking about!
