standing for what's right

anonymous asked:

my theory based on the promo: so basically at the last part of the promo you can see Kara with her 'S' symbol in her regular clothes and a bunch of shit is happening in the background. Based on her face, I feel like she's looking at Lena as she is standing right there seeing who she really is. What led up to that is probably Jack attacking Kara with his evil technology stuff. IM STILL DEAD FROM THE PROMO BTW

ooooh i can dig it! nice

i want the opposite of a suicide pact to happen

if trump wins, we’re all going to survive. live. thrive. and fight for what’s right. we need to stand up more for people like us, because we need it the most now.

hold on. stay with me. i’ve got you.

Colin Kaepernick donates $50,000 to Meals on Wheels

Acting Attorney General Orders Justice Dept. Not to Defend Refugee Ban
Sally Yates, the acting attorney general, wrote in a letter to department lawyers that she was concerned that the executive order might not be legal.
By Matt Apuzzo and Eric Lichtblau

Acting Attorney General Sally Q. Yates, a holdover from the Obama administration, ordered the Justice Department on Monday not to defend President Trump’s executive order on immigration in court.

“I am responsible for ensuring that the positions we take in court remain consistent with this institution’s solemn obligation to always seek justice and stand for what is right,” Ms. Yates wrote in a letter to Justice Department lawyers. “At present, I am not convinced that the defense of the executive order is consistent with these responsibilities nor am I convinced that the executive order is lawful.”

The decision is largely symbolic — Mr. Trump’s nominee to be attorney general, Jeff Sessions, is likely to be confirmed soon — but it highlights the deep divide at the Justice Department and elsewhere in the government over Mr. Trump’s order.

On why I support the punching of white surpremacist leaders:

1. These people are not unneducated. They are not simply ignorant people being manipulated into this. They know exactly what they are saying, and they are saying it anyway.
2. Their message kills people. It supports oppressive systems that kill people every day. Words can be just as violent as punches.
3. These people can’t be reasoned with. They can’t. They already know what you’re gonna say and they don’t care. They firmly believe they are superior. They are scum because they chose to be.
4. Not every opinion deserves respect or a platform. In a world in which proggressist views are increasingly villified and where nationalism is becoming the new normal, it’s important to stand up for what’s right, however we can.
5. It’s important to send the world a message: we will not go quietly. We will not let racism, sexism, lgbtq-phobia go unchecked, we will not let you win so easily.

8-year-old Thomas grew out his hair for two years so that he could donate it to kids with cancer.

He probably went through some teasing or even bullying in the process, but is still willing to do it again! Bless his heart.

We can all be someone’s hero, a smile, a helping hand, a hug, a role model standing up for what is right , make a stand and raise your voice against injustice. We can all do our part to make this world a better place. Be someone’s hero…

Aries: Let yourself heal. Drink enough vodka to clean out the wounds they left on your insides. It’s okay to shatter sometimes and it’s okay to stand for what’s right. Even if everything hurts, just keep breathing.

Taurus: sometimes making excuses isn’t good enough, how dare you deny someone else their pain. Sometimes a situation is just fucked up and that’s all there is too it. Sometimes it can’t be fixed, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt.

Gemini: Think about yourself for once. Stop putting people before you, even if it’s me. Let yourself rest you can’t keep running ragged all the god damn time. I know you want to protect everyone but you cant. We love you for it, but you cant.

Cancer: Pain is going to end I swear it will. I know it feels eternal right now. If it’s all you can do to hang on then fucking hang on because you’re strong enough to beat this.

Leo:  Learn to keep your lips shut because some things aren’t meant to be shared. I know they aren’t told as secrets or at two am but they are still not to be talked about so damn casually.

Virgo: This time of year is always hard. Always scary. But you can pull through. I believe you. Believe that you’re past the hospital visits and all the scary parts of this. You are past it.

Libra: Sometimes cutting up yourself to give others isn’t the best solution. You are not always the missing puzzle piece. You don’t always belong and you won’t always be enough. That’s okay.

Scorpio: Wrap yourself up in bubble wrap if you have to. Keep yourself from getting hurt. Keep yourself from opening wounds again as hard as it is. I know you’re scared. I am too. But you’ll be okay.

Sagittarius: Sometimes recovery Isn’t linear. I know you’ve been fighting for progress but sometimes all you need is a backslide to get a little strength back. I know it’s not easy. But you’ll be okay.

Capricorn: What are you doing? Seriously. What the hell are you trying to do here? You need to say what the plan is so we can get on board. Because all we can tell right now is you’re exploding. We need to know how to pick up the pieces.

Aquarius: Stop being ashamed. Your scars, your wounds, your damage is nothing to fucking hide. If it makes them uncomfortable tell them to fuck off. This is your life and you should be proud.

Pisces: Learn to stop taking so many risks. Running right to the edge one day you won’t be able to stop. Learn how to pull back sometimes. I know it’s hard but it’s all you can do.

Let’s take some time to analyze this small bit from the episode 10 preview

Not sure if it’s been done already. You guys are hella fast when it comes to analyzing scenes holy wow.

So at the end of the preview for episode 10, we see Yuri and Viktor standing/sitting/whatever face to face, right? Okay, so what I noticed, is that Yuri, at first, is staring down.

Then he blinks and looks up at Viktor. In my opinion, his facial expression makes it look as if he’s surprised. Not in a shocked way, but more like in a shy way, if that makes sense?

He’s blushing harder than we’ve ever seen him blush, too.

Then we see Viktor. Viktor has a really gentle and adoring expression on his face. He, just like Yuri, is also looking down, and still looking down by the time Yuri has focused his own eyes on Viktor’s face. 

So what I’m thinking, is that Viktor gave Yuri something. A present, perhaps. Because in the voiceover, Viktor was talking about Christmas presents. Yuri’s birthday is also coming up. So maybe a Christmas present or birthday present.

Looking at their faces, this isn’t just an ordinary present. It’s not some fancy piece of clothing, it’s not katsudon, and it sure as heck is not a pair of socks or an ugly Christmas sweater. I’m thinking it’s something much more intimate. Like a ring.

Or maybe it’s not just a simple Christmas or Birthday present. Maybe it’s a love confession. But if it were, then what could the two be staring down at? Maybe Viktor is holding Yuri’s hands while confessing?

Still, the movements and body language are rather giving me the idea that Viktor is slipping a ring around Yuri’s finger. Realistically, this seems a bit early to be an actual marriage proposal. I mean, it’s totally possible! But despite the whole proposal talk in ep. 9, I’m not sure if their relationship is already at the point where a marriage proposal is the obvious next step. I wouldn’t mind those two getting married already tho lel 

Maybe it’s a love confession where Viktor gives Yuri a ring or something as a token of their relationship/love? Not quite like an engagement ring. but more like a ‘this ring will show everyone that we belong to one another’ kinda ring? 

Or maybe they’re just talking about a touchy subject and Viktor is too shy/embarassed to look at Yuri, but Yuri feels brave enough to look up at Viktor. Viktor hasen’t ever really shown his vulnerable side towards Yuri, not in the anime at least. So this makes sense imo. Maybe all this is just me doing some good old wishful thinking.

But whatever is happening in that preview, we know it’s gonna be good anyway. I mean c’mon, that body language, THOSE FACIAL EXPRESSIONS.

I can’t wait ‘till next week.

another meme i won’t finish: twenty female characters [4 of 20] → rose tyler
You don’t just give up. You don’t just let things happen. You make a stand. You say “no”! You have the guts to do what’s right when everyone else just runs away!

Four years of Trump is four years of demanding our voices to be heard. Don’t stay silent. If you believe in something strongly enough then make it your mission to make change happen. Don’t sit and watch your beliefs get torn apart, get up off of that couch, out of your bed, and into the real world where real things happen that affect us all like it or not. A single voice starts an idea, but only we can make that idea spread. Women’s bodies are their own and they have the right to choose what is done with them. Women are not just pussies to be grabbed at, Muslims are not all terrorists, climate change is real, gay is not a choice, and building walls to keep out “problems” is not the solution literally or metaphorically. What I am saying is real, and if you can’t handle the reality of my words then the unfollow button is right up there. We can conquer this together.

But I think it’s time to tell the truth. S.H.I.E.L.D. is not what we thought it was. It’s been taken over by HYDRA. Alexander Pierce is their leader. The S.T.R.I.K.E. and Insight crew are HYDRA as well. I don’t know how many more, but I know they’re in the building. They could be standing right next to you. They almost have what they want. Absolute control. They shot Nick Fury. And it won’t end there. If you launch those helicarriers today, HYDRA will be able to kill anyone that stands in their way. Unless we stop them. I know I’m asking a lot. But the price of freedom is high. It always has been. And it’s a price I’m willing to pay. And if I’m the only one, then so be it. But I’m willing to bet I’m not.

Me, after watching Yuri!!! on Ice episode 11:

This episode gave me depression and anxiety.
