August has been unkind to my emotional state

planetreptar:

The violence in this country by corrupted cops.

One of my childhood favorite actors committing suicide

The abandonment by my coach

Feelings for a guy I don’t think shares the same

Fellow Christians being slaughtered in the Middle East and Africa.

Some issues seem petty compared to others but they all take toll.

Me too.

The violence against one another, in this country and abroad.

Cancer diagnosis

My best friend’s sudden lost of her husband

Every piece of my camera equipment being stolen from my job.

Stressed out

Going on right now in Ferguson: Police are raiding a church that has been stocked with medical supplies, food, and tear gas recovery kits for community members engaging in protests. This cannot be allowed to continue.

Stand up, speak out. 

This is real life. (x)

Real life in 2014

All of this to protect a fucking murderer.

For one person fucking person. Oh to be white and male in America.

This is ridiculous!!!!!!!!

I’ve said from the beginning that the INFILTRATION is real. What is shown by the media is shown for sensationalism. Television is created for ratings. Peaceful protesting is not interesting television. Therefore, it is essential that something is sparked to get the shot. Before the hate, just know that I’m an educator who’ve taught these tactics for years.
