On days where you find love is not winning, try fighting with compassion and understanding, not with violence. You will find times where your heart sinks, where evil may be victorious and your liberal heart beats alone. Do not give up, do not get angry, fill yourself with power, positivity and understanding. The world cannot push down what is right, the light will shine again, if only you will hold out for it.
Sometimes Monday calls for a pile of adorable piglets, circa 2015, safe and sound at their sanctuary. Can’t believe these babies are already teenagers and will be 2 years old in October. #friendsnotfood
Zeus Those born to the King of the Gods are not to be trifled with, for they radiate strength and command. Electricity flares at the tips of their fingers, lightning running through their veins and setting their blood alight. They are the approaching storm, the bolt racing towards battle with a grin on their face and power in their hands.
Hera Chosen rather than born of the Goddess of marriage, Hera’s favoured share her majesty and pride. Powerful, wise, and at times intimidating, these individuals can be incredible allies or enemies to be feared. They form strong bonds with family, whom they will defend vehemently. Insult them or their family at your peril.
Poseidon Their steps send tremors through the earth, their ears ring with the steady beat of the tide, the scent of the sea consumes their senses. Children of the sea, born amongst the waves, they take strength from their father’s realm. They are as adaptable as the element they command, as dangerous as the storms their father creates on a whim.
Hades Ink shadows, haunting whispers in the night, the chill of a passing spirit. Hades’ children share their father’s realm, holding sway over the dead and the black rock of the underworld. Ghostly auras and ancient burial grounds call to them, and they know that one day they will rest forever in their father’s halls.
Athena They spring forth from the thoughts of the goddess, a culmination of their mortal parent’s intelligence and Athena’s divinity. Purposeful, achieving beyond all expectations, they seek knowledge, display skill and strategy. They are the calm leaders, the thinkers of tomorrow, these beautiful minds.
Aphrodite The parting of perfect lips, delicate lashes fluttering, fingertips trailing across smooth skin. They charm with a look, a soft smile melting hearts. Aphrodite’s children inherit her grace and lure, promoting love and passion as their mother has done for millennia. Love is love and they are its ultimate champions.
Ares The smell of leather and sweat, feet pounding against the earth, calloused hands clasped around blood-tipped daggers. Ares’ children are the fighters, the ones to jump head first into danger with a smirk on their face. These skilled individuals live for the battle, their blood running hot with the gifts of their father.
Hephaestus With flame and tools these demigods may create wonders, crafting and sculpting with a finesse not seen wielded by any mortal. They create life from metal, constantly building, tinkering, discovering. With a command over fire and active minds, Hephaestus’ children will excel wherever their heart takes them.
Apollo Sunlight paints their skin, dips their fingers in gold. Apollo’s children are the warmth of a new day, eyes shining with visions- of the future, of possibilities. Their hands create exquisite worlds within their art, their lips enchanting with words; poetic, lyrical, melodic. Yet, cross these golden demigods and beware, for their hands may also sow sorrow in the form of disease.
Artemis Goddess of virginity and protector of young girls, her adopted children are the Hunters of Artemis. She takes the worthy in, those with strength running through their veins; hidden or not. Their aim never wavers, their feet sprint along wooded paths as if they’ve known the forests their whole lives, following prey with hunter’s intuition.
Demeter The earth shifts at their feet, sprouting blossoms and leaving a wake of greenery as they pass. With fingers trailing through the wheat, Demeter’s children cultivate and raise the world’s gardens. They oversee the seasons, putting the grain to rest as winter falls and breathing life into the buds at the first sign of spring.
Hermes A whisper as they pass, a mischievous laugh, the barely there echo of their winged feet, and the lightening of your pockets as they make use of their sticky fingers. Cunning, swift, and precise, these demigods share their father’s quick-wits and fast feet. They are the pranksters, the thieves, the athletes of this world, and the ones it would pay not to underestimate, for their potential is endless.
Dionysus There is a wild side to all children of Dionysus, madness and excitement are all the same to them. They’ll pull you into a party in a whirlwind of concentrated mayhem; drinks flowing from their fingers, eyes dancing with ecstasy, music vibrating through their souls. Whether inducing frenzy or pouring wine, they possess the same chaotic, enthralling nature as their father, liberators of inhibition.
Hestia Warmth, peace, and affection radiate from Hestia’s children. Born of the hearth, the virgin goddess’ offspring are beings of the home. They stoke the fire with a wave of their hands, ease growing conflict with a non-confrontational smile, and create enticing dishes with the barest of ingredients. They may not seem as powerful as other demigods, yet, respect to them and their mother is always given, for she is the first born of the gods.
We’ve tried peaceful protests and nobody listens. Every liberal peaceful protest is met with a flood of people calling us whiners and mocking us. If they won’t listen to peaceful protests the only option is militancy. Make it so that they have no other option but to address our concerns, they have ignored us too long.
I support the actions taken by the citizens of Berkeley to stand up for what they believe in.
