"Sensitive hearts are like a pond; when you say or do something, it’s like you have tossed a rock into the heart of it, the repercussions go to every part of the pond. So be gentle, be kind, and be loving; for each action will be felt."

omg this reminds me of the most adorable time when my friend had leaked in art class and she was tearing up a bit and this guy who’s usually quiet but is judged as a jerk because his friends tend to be jerks gets up and throws red paint on the side of her shorts and on his own shorts and throws a couple of other colors in too and starts a mini paint war and other people joined in and i nearly cried because of how cute it was

…


Hold on to those men and never let go

I love my skin!

This is so important for children of color to see

And really it’s important for all children to see. Every kid needs to know that diversity is a beautiful thing. It’s especially important for children of color so they can see their skin being celebrated for a change, but also for white kids so they can see that every skin color, not just their own, is one to celebrate!

EVERY TIME SOMEONE BRINGS UP THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA I GET SO ANGRY.

but why

Because it got burned. All of that knowledge, lost forever.



The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, & important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world.

Oh, my gosh, I am so sick and tired of this “Dark Age” that existed. NO NO NO. These “Dark” Ages were not only beautiful in their own right but had a great appreciation for the past. The “Dark” Ages is a myth that has become a permanent fixture because of this little thing called the Protestant Reformation. Think about it: You’re starting a new religion. You think it’s better than the old one. Well, why not tell everyone how horrible the past was? It was the time of the tyrannical Catholic Church, right? Clearly nothing good happened during the Dark Ages. It’s also because of the Enlightenment period. Do you know what historians call this time period? The MIDDLE Ages. Medieval. Do you know why it’s called that? It is called that because the people of the Enlightenment period believed that they were the best thing to come along since the Roman Empire. Well, the fall of Rome was the end of everything good, and we’re trying to bring back the Roman Empire, so we’re clearly way better than those “dark” Ages. The myth continues to grow.
Now, I’m not saying the Middle Ages were perfect. I wouldn’t say the 21st century is perfect either. Each time has contributed something beautiful and useful to humanity but each time has also contributed negatively. Learning was much easier moving out of the Middle Ages because the academic-college setting was a fixture—it was created in the Medieval period. Gosh, it must be pretty difficult to do advanced research when there are no institutions, standards, or teachers. Thank you, Middle Ages, for advancing the education system.
But the barbarians destroyed Rome! If Rome didn’t fall, think of all that good learning and culture we could have had! Now, I’m not the sort of person who agrees with attacking city. However, we should take a lot at who these “Barbarians” were—they were a diverse group of German cultures. Where they as advanced as the Roman Empire? No. However, many of these “barbarians” wanted to move into the Roman Empire because the allure of the art, learning, and Roman culture was very captivating to an illiterate society. They were invited in to rule by the Romans (not all of them though) and, yes, they took advantage of this power. They wanted to hold on to these aspects of a great society. Plus, they’re being pushed further over by the Huns. Who wants to mess with the Huns?
I’m not going to pretend I’m a science expert. Here’s a link. 
Hmm, any other little myths?
Oh, yes. The Church keeping the written word from people. Can’t have people learning to read, can we? Too much trouble if the rabble rises up. Myth. Myth. Myth. First, books and writing materials were very expensive. You had to be wealthy to buy it yourself and the Church didn’t want to risk someone stealing their book. So, yes, the Bible was chained because it was VALUABLE. [Fun fact: People didn’t necessarily need it—they memorized passages, knew the stories, and could see it in the art work reflected in church architecture.] I mentioned at the beginning that the university system was being set up. The earliest stages were simply educated people sitting outside and teaching. The better you were at teaching, the more money you got from the people watching. Plus, there were those teaching freely.
I mentioned art work. Have you seen Medieval artwork? No? Google it.
Did we touch on the growth of philosophy? Try this.
I want to see the Library of Alexandria just as much as the next person. Arguably, I want to see it more than the average person. But our civilization didn’t stop. Our learning didn’t take a break. It took a turn. It went down a different path. History seeks to weed out the truth as much as we possibly can for any given period with the researches provided. Simply assuming one period of time is “dark” because its contributions took a different route than other eras is as ridiculous as assuming one culture is “dark” because it took a different route than other cultures.

"When you’re at the pool lounging on a beach chair and some little kids are running and the lifeguard screams out “no running” do you respond “excuse, not all of us are running”? No, you don’t. The lifeguard didn’t have to specifically state who they were talking to because you’re intelligent enough to comprehend that the comment wasn’t being directed at you."

Found a quote that shuts down that “not all men” argument pretty well. (via mykicks)
