You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies.
You may trod me in the very dirt, but still like dust, I’ll rise.

No, I am not excited for this. The whales still cannot swim even a mile in a straight line, and tanks will never replicate what they need from the ocean. This company is slowly going down, and I’m so happy to see that attendance is slimming because people are realizing whales and dolphins cannot be kept in a fish tank.
WITH RESPECT TO THE BROWN FAMILY WE SHOULD REMOVE PICTURES OF MICHAEL BROWN SLAIN IN THE STREET.
honestly…shame on you if you posted that picture and thought it was okay.
Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.
"I’ve been a deep believer my whole life. 18 years as a Southern Baptist. More than 40 years as a mainline Protestant. I’m an ordained pastor. But it’s just stopped making sense to me. You see people doing terrible things in the name of religion, and you think: ‘Those people believe just as strongly as I do. They’re just as convinced as I am.’ And it just doesn’t make sense anymore. It doesn’t make sense to believe in a God that dabbles in people’s lives. If a plane crashes, and one person survives, everyone thanks God. They say: ‘God had a purpose for that person. God saved her for a reason!’ Do we not realize how cruel that is? Do we not realize how cruel it is to say that if God had a purpose for that person, he also had a purpose in killing everyone else on that plane? And a purpose in starving millions of children? A purpose in slavery and genocide? For every time you say that there’s a purpose behind one person’s success, you invalidate billions of people. You say there is a purpose to their suffering. And that’s just cruel."
