Relative Silence

Imagine: here was a young girl who was just becoming aware of our democracy; just beginning to understand the obligations of citizenship; just starting to glimpse the fact that someday she too might play a part in shaping her nation’s future. She had been elected to her student council; she saw public service as something exciting, something hopeful. She was off to meet her congresswoman, someone she was sure was good and important and might be a role model. She saw all this through the eyes of a child, undimmed by the cynicism or vitriol that we adults all too often just take for granted.

I want us to live up to her expectations. I want our democracy to be as good as she imagined it. All of us - we should do everything we can to make sure this country lives up to our children’s expectations.

38/365 – Heroes in a Half-Shell! (by Photography)

It’s the same figure but with different weapons… Proof: THE EYE MASK DOESN’T CHANGE COLOUR!
Still very cool though. I’m guessing it’s based on the look of the turtles from the comics?

A Child Soldier in Uganda.
In Northern Uganda, a war that has started 20 years ago is still causing torment to the people. A man named Joseph Kony has his men kidnap children in the villages of the four surrounding countries of Uganda and builds an army with them. He forces them to kill or be killed.
One person from the United States gets abducted and it’ll make global news but over the past 20 years 30,000 children, ages 3-17, have been abducted AND forced to murder and we never even hear about it? THIRTY THOUSAND. Seriously, fuck the world for a) allowing Joseph Kony to do this unstopped for 20 years and b) for not publicizing this properly. This man is soon to reach the status of the modern day Adolph Hitler, he is responsible to genocide down there, yet oil prices are still our biggest concern.
Educate yourselves and learn more. Seriously.

Honestly, I don’t even know why I’m trying. This will probably get no attention because you all are too busy reblogging pictures of girls holding cameras or internet memes.
