Brickell Key then & now ••• Brickell Key is a man-made island off the mainland Brickell neighborhood of Miami, FL. Also called Claughton Island, the neighborhood is just east of Downtown Miami and the Miami River. In 1896, Henry Flagler organized a 9-foot deep channel dug from the Miami River mouth, creating two islands in the process. In 1943, Edward N. Claughton, Sr. bought the Brickell Key islands and other land to combine them into a 44-acre triangle-shaped tract. In the late 1970s, Swire Properties bought most of the island from Claughton. 🌴🌞🌇🌃🌌 #brickellkey#brickell#miami#florida#southflorida#miamihistory#henryflagler#claughtonisland#305#tbt#dadecounty#thenandnow

I think it’s sinful to use Catholicism or Christianity in general to paint yourself as a “perfect” human being when in reality, it’s an ostentatious act. The lack of humility that exists out there is astounding.
