“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Rest In Power to a great soul !

A bus driver who tried to rape a passenger at knifepoint chose the wrong victim, a court heard yesterday.
The woman, an off-duty US navy sailor, knocked the knife from his grasp, broke it in two, bit his hand, wrestled him to the ground and put him in a stranglehold between her thighs.
Having beaten him into submission, she left the bus and reported the incident to her commander.
she broke a knife in half
Nah, I don’t think so. Shaming people in a marathon isn’t productive.
Way to go you 50, Fat, Diabetic, Ahead of You Dickwad.
How is he shaming? He’s listing 3 facts about himself and a statement that is necessarily true depending on his position to the reader. Nothing shaming about it.
it’s kinda like the classic idea of “privilege”
rather than admiring this man and trying to be as awesome as he is (because seriously: fighting a chronic disease, advanced in years, out of shape, and running a marathon), self-centered people start thinking “he’s making me look bad”
and their solution to that is to try to drag him down to their level, if not lower
and so he is relegated the ranking of “dickwad”
when, in actual, real life, where living, breathing people interact, a lot of people probably found this humorous, or inspiring, or were even motivated to try to pass him
like honestly, if you’re the type to shrivel up and feel bad about yourself when you see this t-shirt, you probably aren’t the type to run a marathon anyway
Mandela fought against apartheid for decades, spent twenty-seven years in prison for his work, and was eventually elected President of South Africa in 1994. In 1993 he and F.W. de Klerk received the Nobel Peace Prize “for their work for the peaceful termination of the apartheid regime, and for laying the foundations for a new democratic South Africa”.
