America, Fall, and Family: September 11, 2001..... As I stood before this hallowed place.....17 years to the day when time stood still. When we as a Nation watched the Towers Fall, watched the Pentagon burn and the words "Let's Roll" showed a moment of true sacrifice aboard Flight 93 as REAL Americans prevented yet another hit on American soil. A day when we actually stood together as Americans in the face of despair.... I can't help but think of where we are now?! Hate groups running rampant, racial and political divide, calls for monument removals, calls for Presidential Assassinations from elected officials... Where did we go wrong? What happened to us as a Nation? In an age where we are more connected than ever before through technology....it seems we are further apart than we have ever been. So what are we gonna do America? It's true there is never any room in America for bigotry or hate......but neither is DIVISION! The truth is, We are either together or we're not... We are either all in on this idea that is America or we're out... I wonder what the people who on that day 17 years ago were united as one and were simply Americans would say to us now? Would they be proud of the steps we have taken since the day Americans stood together as one nation in the face of true opposition? Or would they not recognize who we are or what we have become? When I think of that day I don't think of terror. I don't think of weakness. I don't see black and I don't see white. I DO NOT see politics of who is right and who is wrong.... I think of a rallying cry for America and the awakening of what makes Americans truly great.... EACH OTHER!! WE are the problem....BUT we are also the answer! Think about it and NEVER FORGET! AMERICA.....Always! -Graham🇺🇸 neverforget 911 life love faith family

He’s obviously uncomfortable and she demands he come up and kiss her, then she sneaks a kiss on his lips even though he said he didn’t want one. Not sure how that can be defined as anything but assault. And people can fuck right off with “he’s lucky his first kiss was with Katy Perry!“ shit. I don’t care who you are you don’t have the right to force yourself on someone. Someone is not “lucky“ to be manhandled by you just because you’re famous. </p> <p>Fuck this double standard.

<p>Finally got around to watching the video and this is honestly fucking disgusting. You know damn well that if Lionel or Luke had done that to a 19-year-old female contestant they would be immediately fired and their careers would be over. He’s obviously uncomfortable and she demands he come up and kiss her, then she sneaks a kiss on his lips even though he said he didn’t want one. Not sure how that can be defined as anything but assault. And people can fuck right off with “he’s lucky his first kiss was with Katy Perry!“ shit. I don’t care who you are you don’t have the right to force yourself on someone. Someone is not “lucky“ to be manhandled by you just because you’re famous. </p>

<p>Fuck this double standard. And then the bitch had the nerve to act like he wasn’t talented enough to go through while acknowledging that he was probably nervous because she fucking assaulted him. Honestly trash.</p>

Anaconda, Blessed, and Clothes: See this old man? Here's why he is one

 This is 99 year old Dobri Dobrev, a man who lost most of his hearing in
 the second World War, has spent decades traveling 25 kilometers by
 foot every day, decked in his homemade clothes and leather shoes,
 from his village to the city of Sofia, Bulgaria, where he spends the day
 begging for money.

 Strangely enough, Dobrev isn't begging for himself.
 He manages to live with an 80 euros pension (rougly 100 usd) a month
 All the money that he has collected over the years (an estimated 40.000
 euros) have been donated by him to orphanages unable to pay their bills

 He doesn't keep a cent of the money he receives.
 Everything is for the orphanages.
 Some call him The saint of Baylovo", his place of birth
 This year he will be 100 years old.

 ки
 AB
 As one might expect, he is cherished by everybody. They call him
 "Dyado Dobri (Grandpa Dobri) and he represents the good that can be
 done in the most selfless way possible
 So, if you're in need of a role model, here's one. Just by being
 a little bit like him, the world will be a much better place

The relationship between these characters, named 'Supercorp' by Supergirl fans, was made an enormous joke by the star of this show. Melissa, Jeremy, and the other cast members at Comic Con were singing and yelling about how Kara Danvers and Lena Luthor would never be more than friends, shouting at the top of their lungs that those two female characters would never see each other in a romantic light in their whole lives. They danced and clapped about the incomprehensibility of a woman loving another woman, save for Katie McGrath and David Harewood who appeared uncomfortable in their already isolated positions behind the couch that the rest of the cast was situated on. The song celebrating how ridiculous the concept of female best friends eventually dating each other finally died down, and Jeremy Jordan said, "l think I'm going to get destroyed for what l just did. I debunked Supercorp." In response, Melissa Benoist said, "It was pretty brave. Is bravery making fun of girls of all ages who see themselves in the characters on a TV show that brands itself as feminist? Is bravery spitting in the faces of non-heterosexual women who find safety and enjoyment in the relationship between Kara and Lena?

On behalf of LGBT women specifically, I am incredibly disappointed. Watching Melissa make fun of people who see a blossoming relationship between Kara and Lena was hurtful to the point that many are unsure of whether or not we can enjoy her show again.

Appalled, Best Friend, and Butt: Out of Office - Business Travel Re: Melissa Benoist Alienating LGBT Fans of
 SupegirInbox x

 o whom it may concern,
 During the Supergirl cast's first day at San Diego Comic Con, your client Melissa Benoist exhibited some
 behavior that deeply upset a large portion of her LGBT fanbase as well as supporters of Supergirl in
 general. It is not my intention to defame Melissa or spew mindless hate; her words and actions today made
 a noticeable portion of her audience feel not only uncomfortable but also unwelcome as far as supporting
 her role as Kara on Supergirl
 Melissa openly, on a live video stream, participated in singing a song with Jeremy Jordan and other cast
 members that aggressively mocked the concept of Melissa's character having romantic feelings for Katie
 McGrath's character Lena Luthor. The relationship between these characters, named 'Supercorp' by
 Supergirl fans, was made an enormous joke by the star of this show. Melissa, Jeremy, and the other cast
 members at Comic Con were singing and yelling about how Kara Danvers and Lena Luthor would never be
 more than friends, shouting at the top of their lungs that those two female characters would never see each
 other in a romantic light in their whole lives. They danced and clapped about the incomprehensibility of a
 woman loving another woman, save for Katie McGrath and David Harewood who appeared uncomfortable
 in their already isolated positions behind the couch that the rest of the cast was situated on.
 The song celebrating how ridiculous the concept of female best friends eventually dating each other finally
 died down, and Jeremy Jordan said, "l think I'm going to get destroyed for what l just did. I debunked
 Supercorp." In response, Melissa Benoist said, "It was pretty brave.
 Is bravery making fun of girls of all ages who see themselves in the characters on a TV show that
 brands itself as feminist? Is bravery spitting in the faces of non-heterosexual women who find
 safety and enjoyment in the relationship between Kara and Lena? Is bravery yelling and singing to
 young girls who are unsure of their sexualities that there is no way someone could ever fall in love
 with their best friend and have it mean something besides being the butt of a joke?

 On behalf of LGBT women specifically, I am incredibly disappointed. Watching Melissa make fun

Bailey Jay, Dogs, and Fall: Write about somethng that you love to do. (200 words or fewer) The sound of my doorbell starts off high, then the pitch mellows out, and the whole effect mimics an instrumental interpretation of rain finally finding a steady pace at which to fall. I have spent several minutes analyzing its tone because have had many opportunities to do so, as one thing I love to do is order pizza and have it delivered to my house. When the delivery person 0 0 rings my doorbell, I instantly morph into one of Pavlov's dogs, salivating to the sound that signals the arrival of the cheesy, circular glory. It smells like celebration, as I love to rejoice a happy occasion by calling Papa John's for my favorite food. It tastes like comfort, since having pizza delivered to my quiet home is a way for me to unwind.
