The Ashleys (Recess, 1997-2001)
DO YOU REALISE THAT THESE GIRLS ARE THE CLUELESS CHARACTERS?
I do now…
This is “war.” This is Gaza. This is Palestine. Do you not see how bad things have gotten? And wats all over the news? Lebron going back to Cleveland. How can that be anywhere near the media when this is going on? How can you people turn a blind eye and pretend like this isn’t going on? It’s pretty pathetic. I posted a few videos and a few pictures and instead of everyone sharing and trying to raise awareness I lost over a hundred followers. To hell with you all who unfollow me because I show “bloody” pictures. Like I said in my previous post, I’m sorry for ruining your perfect day for a few seconds when this mans life has been ruined forever, like thousands of others in Gaza now. NOW! DO YOU PEOPLE NOT UNDERSTAND THIS IS CURRENTLY HAPPENING? RIGHT NOW AS YOU READ THIS PEOPLE ARE DYING?! IS IT SO HARD FOR YOU TO RAISE AWARENESS? IS IT? WHAT IN GODS NAME IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? HOW CAN YOU BE OKAY WITH NOT KNOWING ABOUT WHATS GOING ON?!? HOW. God please, please I am begging you from the bottom of my heart, please from every inch of my being with everything I have, please please please turn the Palestinians pain and suffering to happiness and ease. Please God I beg you because you’re the only option these people have left. It’s obvious the rest of the world gave up, please Dear God, please Ya Allah, help these people in every way possible. Do not let them feel an ounce of pain more than they already have had to endure. Please God destroy and make do with the evil that’s causing these catastrophic events. Please God do not let Israel do to us what Hitler did to them, not anymore. They’ve done more than enough. Please God I’ve turned to you so please don’t turn away from me and answer my prayers because you’re the only one that’s willing to help. #Ameen #PrayForGaza #PrayForPalestine #WhereIsTheHumanity #WhereIsTheUN #WhereIsTheHumanRights #WhereIsThePeace #EndTheGenocide #ImBegging #God #HesTheOnlyOneWhoWantsToHelp #StopBeingIgnorant #OpenYourEyes #StopTheKillings #EndTheOccupation #Palestine #PalestineWillBeFree #Israel #Terrorists #Terrorism #Murder
I know this isn’t black and white but this shit needs to be shared. The world is fucked.
From Bob Marley’s locs to Angela Davis’ famous fro. For the Black community, wearing your natural hair has been a symbol of proud African origin and a statement of resistance against Eurocentric ideals and repression. Not all naturals wear their hair as a political statement. Today natural hair…
A little earlier after I got home from work… Looks like something fell out my pants…
I forgot this picture of me is floating around out there…
Good morning to all the beautiful girls that follow me
This is a picture taken right after my tattoo was finished- When I was 10 years old, I was diagnosed with an incredibly rare strain of Poland’s Syndrome. I am one of 7 known cases in the world. I was born without my entire right pectoral major & minor muscles, and the rib underneath was also missing. I have about 30 spin-off diseases because of just this one. Also, the entire right side of my body is different than my left. All of my bones are slightly deformed and my muscles don’t behave the way the ones of my opposite side do. Because of the rarity of my disease, I was told that I’d never be able to dance, swim, perform, run, or even be a normal kid ever again. If i was to be struck in my chest on this side, my lung was basically exposed, and I could be killed. Later that night, I was cleaning my bookshelf when one of my favorite Shel Silverstein books fell open to the poem Listen to the Mustn’ts. It reads:Listen to the MUSTN'TS, child Listen to the DON'TS Listen to the SHOULDN'TS The IMPOSSIBLES, the WON'TS Listen to the NEVER HAVES Then listen close to me-- Anything can happen, child, ANYTHING can be.
From that point on, I lived by that poem. I was horribly teased my ENTIRE LIFE for this. Being a girl, you’re supposed to have two boobs. Not me, though. I had one and a half. By the time my 18th birthday rolled around, I had roughly 7-ish inches difference between my left and right breast. I was told they wouldn’t ever operate on me, seeing as how it would be the first in medical history and ran too high of a risk. But about 6 months ago, I came in contact with a surgeon here in Knoxville, Tennessee. Dr. Becker. He’d worked on one regular case of Poland’s and was sure that he could figure out a way to make me somewhat normal. He went to work for months photographing me, taking my scans/pictures to conferences to get more opinions, and finally coming up with a plan. On August 22nd, 2011, I went into surgery. I was in for almost 11 hours. I had a drainage tube for 3 weeks, and a month on bed-rest. I stand here today with less than a 1/2 inch difference in my silhouette between my left and right breast.
A few days after I got off of bed rest, I had one of my good friends, Nick Moran at American Rebel Tattoo in Pigeon Forge, TN tattoo the last line from that poem onto the bottom of my right rib cage. I chose my favorite Silverstein illustration (the guitar man to reflect me being a musician) and had the words coming out of his mouth.
It wasn’t a wise placement for my very first tattoo, but it was important that it went there. Less than 30 minutes in the chair and I couldn’t be happier with the result. It looks better than the illustration itself.
