I am SO happy with how this came out!!! I hope @wiishu looks beautiful enough! I really do enjoy G/t stuff and thought this might be a funny idea with those jokes about Jack being a leprechaun and the little reference to the “Whose More Likley…” video. :3

Daily Horoscopes - March 17th, 2017

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to anyone who is celebrating! Please be safe during any rituals and drink responsibly (or get hella turnt but have someone keep an eye on you).

ARIES: You’re still trying to make nice-nice between family members who haven’t spoken in… oh, who knows how long? And why? You’ve put your all into it. Isn’t it time for them to start trying too? Let yourself off the hook.

TAURUS: You’re sure that keeping quiet for one second longer will drive you nuts, but give it a shot. Some secrets aren’t meant to be shared, not with anyone. This just might be one of them.

GEMINI: How can it feel like a holiday on a workday? It’s not surprising, since your coworkers are also your friends. Have some fun. You can work extra hard later on in the week.

CANCER: It’s time to get out there and see if you can find someone who’s not afraid to return a long, lingering stare without blinking. Even if they give in before you do – well, isn’t that even more appealing?

LEO: Don’t blame the family member that’s trying too hard to get on your good side. They know what they might be losing, and they don’t want that to happen. At least understand that they care.

VIRGO: After days of ‘being nice’ you’ve had it. It’s time to return to your usual style: blunt and honest. You may want to keep a secret under wraps for a few days longer, though. Think of it as mercy.

LIBRA: You’re about to meet someone you’ll find extremely interesting. The reason you’ll fine them interesting however, is because they’re just a bit ‘dangerous’. Be sure it’s only a bit.

SCORPIO: Be careful what you say now, because even if you don’t intend to be so, each and every syllable you utter could hurt someone. If you’re angry, your best bet might be to just keep quiet.

SAGITTARIUS: Someone who’s in the regular crew you associate with is considering what it would take for you to step up and take charge – basically, to assume control of the steering wheel. Don’t be modest. Agree. But ask for a contract.

CAPRICORN: What a great way to start the day – with a nice, strong dose of romance. Whether you’re single or attached, you’re going to feel like a teenager. And you just wait – there’s even more in store!

AQUARIUS: You’ve got energy to burn and it’s a good thing. The universe has arranged an extremely busy day for you – you might even call it frenetic. Just stay calm and keep the coffee intake to a minimum.

PISCES: Hopefully, you weren’t planning on getting any rest tonight, because that’s just not going to happen. You may be able to relax, but don’t count on getting to sleep early.

When she joined a “swim-in” in St. Augustine, Florida on June 18, 1964, then 17-year-old Mamie Nell Ford had little idea that her picture would soon be seen around the world – and help spur the passage of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964. On that day, seven civil rights activists, including Ford, jumped into the segregated pool at the Monson Motor Lodge to protest its ‘whites-only’ policy. As journalists looked on, the motel owner’s James Brock responded by dumping acid into the pool in an effort to drive them out. Ford recalls that her immediate reaction was “I couldn’t breathe,” and a photo of her with an alarmed expression as Brock pours acid nearby appeared in newspapers around the world. When people learn about the incident today, Ford says, “I’m often asked, ‘How could you have so much courage?’ Courage for me is not ‘the absence of fear,’ but what you do in the face of fear.”

The campaign to challenge segregation in St. Augustine in 1963 and 1964, known as the St. Augustine Movement, is considered one of the bloodiest of the Civil Rights Movement. Students staging “wade-ins” to challenge segregation on the beaches were violently beaten and, after several black children were admitted into white schools due to the Supreme Court’s decision outlawing school segregation, several of the children’s homes were burnt to the ground by local segregationists. Martin Luther King, Jr. was even arrested on the steps of this same motel only a week prior to the pool “swim-in,” after being charged with trespassing when he attempted to dine at the “whites-only” Monson Restaurant.

Prior to the pool “swim-in”, Ford was already an experienced civil rights activist in her hometown of Albany, Georgia. When Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Southern Christian Leadership Conference came to Albany to recruit activists to support the movement in St. Augustine, she immediately signed up. “When they asked for volunteers to participate in the swim-in demonstration, I said, yes, because, despite segregation, I knew how to swim,” she says. While they knew it was likely they would be arrested, no one expected the owner to pour acid into the pool. “It is as fresh in my mind as the morning dew, because when the acid was poured in the pool, the water began to bubble up,” Ford recalls. Although the group was arrested shortly thereafter, their protest had the intended effect: as it made headlines worldwide, President Johnson said in a recorded phone conservation: “Our whole foreign policy will go to hell over this!” Within 24 hours, the civil rights bill that had been introduced a year before and had been stalled in the Senate won approval, leading directly to the passage of the historic Civil Rights Act of 1964.

After being released from serving jail time for the swim-in, Ford made a powerful statement urging the people of St. Augustine to keep fighting: “Don’t lose heart now because you’re the ones on whom this movement rests. People will come and go because they live somewhere else, but you live here and you make this thing happen.” She returned home and went on to join five other black girls to lead the desegregation of the formerly all-white Albany High School, where she graduated with honors in 1965. Ford, who later changed her name to Mimi Jones, then went to college in Boston where she spent her career working in the Department of Education.

Although less well known than school segregation, the long legacy of segregation in swimming pools still lives on today. After legal challenges and actions like this one in St. Augustine forced the end of segregated pools, in many towns, especially in the South, ‘white flight’ from public pools to private clubs often led to their closure. The impact of first segregation and later pool closures over generations has led to a major gap between white and black Americans in swimming ability, with whites being twice as likely to know how to swim as blacks. This difference is also reflected in the CDC finding that black children are three times more likely die from drowning than white children. For these reasons and the long legacy of racism at swimming pools, Simone Manuel’s victory at the last Olympic Games took on special meaning for many African Americans – a significance the young swimmer alluded to after she became the first African-American woman to ever win an individual Olympic gold in swimming: “The gold medal wasn’t just for me,“ she said. "It’s for a lot of people who came before me.”
