There is unrest in the Galactic Senate. Several thousand solar systems have declared their intentions to leave the Republic. This separatist movement, under the leadership of the mysterious Count Dooku, has made it difficult for the limited number of Jedi Knights to maintain peace and order in the galaxy. Senator Amidala, the former Queen of Naboo, is returning to the Galactic Senate to vote on the critical issue of creating an ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC to assist the overwhelmed Jedi…
Despite being raised as the sheltered doll of a wealthy aristocratic family, she became an extremely powerful and intelligent martial artist, not to mention a smack-talking earth bending champion, at the age of 12 no less.
At that same age, she ran away from home and created a brand new fine art in the skill of earth bending, further testing the limits of the practice more than anyone had before her. She helped the Avatar push back the destruction of her home country and saved the world in the process. All at the age of 12 years old.
After that she helped the Avatar create a shining city of peace and order, and created a police force made up of earth benders capable lf practicing metal bending.
She really is the greatest earth bender in the world.
It’s perfectly okay to enjoy spending time alone. It’s also okay to relax and enjoy a calm, quiet environment where you can do anything you want to without others being around. There is nothing wrong with needing peace and quiet in order to feel better and recharge.
Pyotr Kropotkin dies, aged 79. Three days later, his funeral is the last non-state organised mass assembly in Russia for the next 70 years.
“The funeral was a most impressive sight. It was a unique demonstration never witnessed in any other country. Long lines of members of Anarchist organizations, labour unions, scientific and literary societies and student bodies marched for over two hours from the Labour Temple to the burial place, seven versts [nearly five miles] distant. The procession was headed by students and children carrying wreaths presented by various organizations. Anarchist banners of black and scarlet Socialist emblems floated above the multitude. The mile-long procession entirely dispensed with the services of the official guardians of the peace. Perfect order was kept by the multitude itself spontaneously forming in several rows, while students and workers organized a live chain on both sides of the marchers. Passing the Tolstoi Museum the cortege paused, and the banners were lowered in honour of the memory of another great son of Russia. A group of Tolstoians on the steps of the Museum rendered Chopin’s Funeral March as an expression of their love and reverence for Kropotkin.
The brilliant winter sun was sinking behind the horizon when the remains of Kropotkin were lowered into the grave, after speakers of many political tendencies had paid the last tribute to their great teacher and comrade.”

These aren’t Syrians, Libyans or Africans; they are Europeans trying to get to North Africa during the last world war. So, next time you think of closing the borders you might want to check with your grandparents.
“Through the millennia, the Time Lords of Gallifrey led a life of peace and ordered calm, protected from all threats from lesser civilisations by their great power. But this was to change. Suddenly and terribly, the Time Lords faced the most dangerous crisis in their long history…”
