“Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.”
― Ellen Goodman
This is “war.” This is Gaza. This is Palestine. Do you not see how bad things have gotten? And wats all over the news? Lebron going back to Cleveland. How can that be anywhere near the media when this is going on? How can you people turn a blind eye and pretend like this isn’t going on? It’s pretty pathetic. I posted a few videos and a few pictures and instead of everyone sharing and trying to raise awareness I lost over a hundred followers. To hell with you all who unfollow me because I show “bloody” pictures. Like I said in my previous post, I’m sorry for ruining your perfect day for a few seconds when this mans life has been ruined forever, like thousands of others in Gaza now. NOW! DO YOU PEOPLE NOT UNDERSTAND THIS IS CURRENTLY HAPPENING? RIGHT NOW AS YOU READ THIS PEOPLE ARE DYING?! IS IT SO HARD FOR YOU TO RAISE AWARENESS? IS IT? WHAT IN GODS NAME IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? HOW CAN YOU BE OKAY WITH NOT KNOWING ABOUT WHATS GOING ON?!? HOW.
The original story of the little mermaid is that she must kill the prince in order to be human, and in the end, she loves him too much and kills herself instead.
The artwork is too great not to reblog.
Ok, ok - important expansion: she only has to kill the Prince because the deal was if he fell in love with her she could be human forever, and he didn’t. By which I mean, he was a good person and genuinely nice to her, but he didn’t fall in love. He fell in love with someone else, also perfectly nice - not the seawitch in disguise, fu Disney. The Mermaid is told she can only return to the sea now if she kills the Prince. She goes into the room where he and his lover lie sleeping and they look so beautiful and happy together that she can’t do it.
That’s why she kills herself. And because it was a noble act she returns to sea as foam.
One moral of the story was that women shouldn’t fundamentally change who they are for love of a man, and in theory Han Christian Anderson wrote it for a ballerina with whom he fell in love. She was marrying someone else who wouldn’t let her dance.
THIS JUST. I. CAN’T.. WHAT
