the vow sentences

Heart and analogical

“i was always worried that i did not have a heart,” logan says. “anatomically speaking, of course, i knew that there was an organ inside my chest that pumped blood through my body. i refer to the metaphorical heart representing the seat of emotions, particularly romantic ones. i worried that i would be alone the rest of my live. and much as i pretended it did not, that thought terrified me. but ever since i met virgil, i have realized that - that there is both a metaphorical and a physical heart in my chest. and they both beat for you, virgil. i love you so much, and - and i cannot wait to spend my life with you.” 

The devastating scenes will break the hearts of Robron fans as a vulnerable Aaron says goodbye to his loved ones and is locked up where he immediately struggles as he gets his head around being ripped away from the people who mean everything to him for twelve months.
And, back home, Robert is left both livid and upset over Aaron’s harsh sentence, vowing to launch an appeal and get him out as soon as he can. Liv Flaherty also takes the news badly and assumes that Robert will want to send her back to stay with her mum Sugden but he assures her that they are in this together before hugging her close.

Harry crying as you walk down the aisle, the first time he has seen you all day and it just makes him feel so overwhelmed with love as you both make eye contact

YEET

I feel like Harry’s one of those men who will definitely cry at his wedding. Maybe at the beginning of the ceremony he would be like a nervous wreck, his palms sweat and his hands shaking as he tries to keep his fears at bay. He knows that a relationship with him his hard work when you two were together but he hopes that you suddenly wouldn’t change your mind that being with him forever might be even more work.

And he has his friends and best man reassure him that you love him with all your heart, maybe more than he loves you to which he just smiles and shakes his head cos that’s just not possible and you mean he world to him.

By the time the bridesmaids start walking down the aisle, he’s so anxious but also excited to see how you look cos you stuck to tradition and haven’t seen him since the night before but he knows that however you look, you’ll be beautiful almost like an ethereal being. When he finally catches your sight, he notice tears streaming down your face which causes the ones that he’s tried so hard to keep at bay to slip out of the corner of his eyes. He doesn’t hide the fact that he’s crying and when your dad passes your hand over into his, all he does is look at you with the biggest smile on his face and mumbles the one sentence he vows to tell you for the rest of his life because to him, there is no truer statement that it.

“I love you.”

Get Ready to be Disgusted

Every crime I write about horrifies me, but there are some that truly make me feel sick. This is one of them, not just because of the crime itself, but because of the gross failure of the justice system and the fact that three unrepentant murderers are currently free with the encouragement of the prosecution.

This happened in Argentina, a country that’s becoming more and more known for its alarming rates of femicide. On the late afternoon of March 17, 2016, Marisela Pozo (27) left her house in a panic. Neighbors saw her running down the street, saying she was going to get killed. It’s likely that she was in a psychotic state, provoked by cocaine that was later found in her system. In her desperation, Marisela reached a closed small shop and start banging on the door. Since no one opened, she broke one of the windows.

This finally encouraged the owner of the place, Héctor Julio, to come out. But not to help her. He, a big man, grabbed the 120 pound woman, threw her to the ground and started beating her with a metal stick. As Marisela started screaming, some neighbors came down with that common virus of our current society and started filming the attack on their cellphones instead of trying to intervene or call the cops. One of them, a mechanic called Sergio Abatedaga showed some solidarity with the attacker and offered him some cable to tie Marisela up. After some more hits, they tied her up to a post where she was left for about an hour.

Not happy with that, they also taunted her by laughing at her and calling her crazy. “If you calm down we’ll let you go”, they reportedly said. Their laughs were echoed by some of the witnesses, as seen in the videos, who also shouted things at her. Again, no one called the police.

Once they untied her, she was so weak and bloodied she couldn’t even stand up. She tried to open the door of a car that was in the street, which led to the enraged owner of the vehicle, a taxi driver named Patricio Larocca, to come out and join the torture. Witnesses claim he told her he’d “help her stop her madness” and grabbed her by the hair and dragged her down the street. He finally threw her right next to some train tracks. A woman that was arriving from work saw her convulsing and finally called an ambulance. Marisela was taken to the hospital where she agonized for three days before finally dying on March 20.

Autopsy confirmed she was literally beaten to death, in the middle of the street, tortured for three hours. The videos were obviously posted in social media. 

Shockingly, the prosecutor in charge of this case, Carlos Alfredo Luppino, decided to offer the three killers a deal. An abbreviated trial, and they would consider their crime the argentine equivalent to involuntary manslaughter, meaning that yes, they had beaten the poor woman and tied her to a post, but they had no intention to kill her. A judge actually agreed with this, because it wasn’t just one hit that killed Marisela, but all of them combined. Yes, I guess that’s something that only makes sense to lawyers. The men were sentenced to one year of suspended sentence, meaning they didn’t even have to spend time in prison.

This has obviously caused a scandal in Argentina, and through their lawyer, Marisela’s family has vowed to appeal the sentence.

It is the largest extant medieval manuscript. It is assumed to have been created in the Benedictine monastery of Podlažice in Bohemia (Czech Republic). It was probably written in the first third of the XIII century. In 1648 during the Thirty Years War, the work was taken and is preserved at the National Library in Stockholm, Sweden.

is also known as the “Devil’s Bible” for the great illustration of the devil contained inside and why according to a legend, the scribe was a monk who broke his monastic vows and was sentenced to be walled up alive. In order to avoid this penalthy he promised to create in one day a book to glorify the monastery (the story stems from the fact that it was the medieval belief that the copying of the texts was a privileged way for the atonement of their sins). Near midnight, he understood that his task was not possible, so he made a prayer to Lucifer asking him to help him finish the book in exchange of his soul. The devil completed the manuscript and the monk added the devil’s picture out of gratitude for his aid. In popular fiction, the 8 missing pages are rumored to contain an apocalyptic text called “ The Devil’s Prayer”.

It is contained in a skin covered with wooden cover, with metal decorations.

measures 92 centimeters long, 50 wide and 22 thick and weighs 75 kilograms. initially it contained 320 pages of vellum, but 8 of these were removed.

The code seems to have been created by a certain Herman the recluse of the Benedictine monastery Podlažice destroyed in the XV century. The code indicated 1229 as the year of completion. The book appeared later in the monastery of Sedlec and then purchased from that of Brenov. From 1477 to 1593 it was preserved in the library of a monastery in Broumov until it was not moved to Prague in 1594 became part of the collection of Rudolph II of Habsburg.

At the end of the Thirty Years War in 1648 the whole of Rudolf II collection was taken by the Swedish army.

It contains a full transcript of the Bible comes almost entirely from the “Vulgate”, except the Acts of the Apostles and the Revelation of St. John, taken from the Old Latin.

Also it includes:

1) Etymologiae of Isidore of Seville

2) Two of historical works of Josephus (Jewish Antiquities and the Jewish War)

3) a history of Bohemia Cosmas of Prague

4) various treaties

5) list of the monks of the monastery Podlazicama

6) spells

7) the greek alphabet, Cyrillic and Hebrew.

The book is written in Latin.

The manuscript includes thumbnails in red, blue, yellow, green and gold. The initial capital letters are illuminated and often occupy the entire page. writing is always the same from start to finish, the handwriting is the same and this did suggest that the manuscript was written in a short period and by the same person. Some scholars think that may be the work of one man who has worked for over 20 years.

 p. 577 or Folio 209 recto: contains an image of the Devil to the entire page. Some pages are written on blackened sheets different from the others. Directly opposite the devil is a full page depiction of the Kingdom of Heaven. Several pages before this are written on a blackened parchment with gloomy character, different from the rest. The reason for this is that the pages are made of vellum. Vellum tans when exposed to ultraviolet light.
