525,000 moments so dear.
Probably the most amazing gif I have ever seen.
This is beyond perfect.
Last Night in Ferguson (9.28-9.29): Last night’s protest was one of the in Ferguson this month, proving once again that the residents of Ferguson/STL County are some of the most resilient and inspiring in all the land. The police were literally holding peaceful protesters hostage late into the night (folks who were complying with all police requests) so they could negotiate with the remaining folks to leave, but the protesters didn’t back down. Eventually all arrestees were released, and many plan to be back out there tonight.
Injustice in Ferguson continues, but despite it, community now thrives too. This is still happening. Are you still paying attention? #staywoke #farfromover
Mexico Takes to the Streets for Students of Ayotzinapa
Mexicans took to the streets on Wednesday in impromptu marches in support of students from a rural teachers’ college in Ayotzinapa, Guerrero, who were murdered and disappeared in late September. Police officers and cartel members are suspected of burying the students in mass graves, which were discovered on Saturday. The public outcry led to a call for a national march to demand justice.
More than 50 cities participated from Chiapas to Baja California.

This is important
I feel like everyone talks about Mexican emigration to the U.S., but no one talks about why Mexican families are fleeing the country. Always curious why people refer to these families as “illegal immigrants” instead of “refugees”. When you promote deportation of Mexicans who have illegally crossed the border, you are trying to send many of them back to small border towns that have become war zones run by corrupt police and drug cartels.
What it would look like if the Orion Nebula was a distance of 4 light years away.
The denial that created the United States is alive and well.
