Women should NOT be forced to fucking feed their babies in a goddamn bathroom, all because we live in a misogynistic, porn-warped society that’s been brainwashed to believe that female breasts used for anything other than male pleasure is “indecent”. Support public breast feeding and end the porn culture.
"I saw this elderly gentleman dining by himself, with an old picture of a lady in front of him. I though maybe I could brighten his day by talking to him.
As I had assumed, she was his wife. But I didn’t expect such an interesting story. They met when they were both 17. They dated briefly, then lost contact when he went to war and her family moved. But he said he thought about her the entire war. After his return, he decided to look for her. He searched for her for 10 years and never dated anyone. People told him he was crazy, to which he replied “I am. Crazy in love”. On a trip to California, he went to a barber shop. He told the barber how he had been searching for a girl for ten years. The barber went to his phone and called his daughter in. It was her! She had also been searching for him and never dated either.
He proposed immediately and they were married for 55 years before her death 5 years ago. He still celebrates her birthday and their anniversary. He takes her picture with him everywhere and kisses her goodnight.
Some inspiring things he said;
"I was a very rich man. Not with money, but with love"
"I never had a single argument with my wife, but we had lots of debates"
"People are like candles. At any moment a breeze can blow it out, so enjoy the light while you have it."
"Tell your wife that you love her everyday. And be sure to ask her, have I told you that I love you lately?"
Be sure to talk to the elderly. Especially strangers. You may think that you will brighten their day, but you may be surprised that they can actually brighten yours.”
This is beautiful.
this is wonderful and amazing and one of the reasons i volunteer with old people
a note on origin stories- they may be my favorite. we learn where it began often with gamma rays or a strange gift- but to me more importantly- it is always a choice. it is a choice to keep your identity secret or to choose to protect people that you could easily crush- a choice to live out of step with everyone else… i mention this because as a band our origin is important to us- it is something we are very protective of. when we were approached to write music to be included in the film big hero six it was not something we took lightly- we have never done that before… so we went over to disney and met with the directors, disney music and animating department… they explained the story to us. it was insane how much it lined up with the way our band saw the world…i wont include spoilers in here- but suffice it to say that our band is a very particular kind of nerd and the guys behind this story and film shared the same references and ideas- maybe even origins.. so we returned and saw some storyboards and some early animations… we then went and wrote a song to a specific scene but tried to capture the spirit of the film. this is something we have been working on very hard and close with the filmmakers- i cant wait for you to see the movie and how “immortals” fits into it…
no matter how your costume changes never forget your origin story.
