NCADV honors Helene Ann Ball, who was killed by her husband on March 11th, 1998 in Dunedin, Florida. She was 43. "Helene was a loving mother to her daughter. She worked hard as a nurse and enjoyed caring for others. She loved being with her family, dancing, and shopping (especially for presents for others). Helene would light up a room with her laughter and had a quarky sense of humor. She would go out of her way to be nice to others. She loved being around children and telling stories. Helene loved being a mom and would have loved being a grandmother.
My mom was the kind of person who just enjoyed spending time with you. You didn’t have to be doing something big, she just loved to be with the ones she loved. I have so many memories of just laughing at really silly things in our day to day life." NCADV's #MemorialMonday project shares memories from family and friends of people who lost their life to domestic violence. Share your memories of a victim with us: http://ow.ly/qy64306Zc1W.

Not sure if any Texas-based tattoo parlors are participating in @stillnotaskingforit_flashevent but it would be amazing to see some support for awareness, prevention & recovery from sexual assault & rape. The stories on my website (link in bio) are a testament that sexual assault is sadly alive & well in the tattoo industry. .

The government is in the business of putting bandaids on cancer.. If we want to actually treat the problem WE THE PEOPLE must stand up and start doing something about these problems. Let's utilize each other's strengths to cure the actual disease. We will only see change in our Nation when WE THE PEOPLE stand up and start acting instead of letting politicians put bandaids on our internal wounds.

THIS is awful to deal with. Shit even little comments can be negative and make a person feel shitty about themselves when it comes from someone who claims to love you. And if you have awful self esteem before the relationship it will just be easier for them to pick at it until you have none.

Sigh it's a constant battle 😢😢😢 #mentalabuse #emotionalabuse #beyourself #beyou #takeastand #dontletthemgetyoudown

It’s important that we all know what rape culture looks like, even smaller instances such as the phrase “boys will be boys” is part of the problem. Rape culture is all around us, and we all must fight to dismantle this pyramid. •

Best thing about surgery: when done, You can have whatever you want on the menu.
Also, I don’t trust people with bad eyebrows.

You are always in control of what you choose to see. 🌸
Have you ever noticed that we’re quick to put our guard up when you are told “you have changed” or “you aren’t the same person you were before”
🌗
It’s almost immediately, your mind goes on auto and is on the defensive. The words that come out of your mouth, with out hesitating are “I haven’t changed” or “I’m still the same person I was when we first met.” ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
WHY?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Why do we see change as a bad thing? Why do we choose to believe we are the same from years ago?
Are we not like these flowers? Slowly blooming into its full beauty and with time change colors and wither away.
If we aren’t growing and evolving then are we simply staying still?
I believe we need to start owning our changes. Start embracing who we were and who we are now.
Change has to happen. Otherwise it seems we aren’t learning and implementing any of the life lessons we go through.
Just some food for you thought.

#AfroColombianiday is an annual commemoration of the abolishment of slavery in Colombia on May 21, 1851. May 21st is also the day of the 1st established free town in the America's, Palenque de San Basilio.
#AfroColombianDay was 1st celebrated in 2001.

Afro-Colombian Day hopes to show the natives the importance of the African population and the effect they have on the history of Colombia. Afro-Colombian Day celebrates the artistic, intellectual, and social contributions of Afro-Colombians in Colombia. During the event the people celebrate through food, music, art, and local folklore. "For Rudesindo Castro, coordinator of ethno-education in the Black Community Organization (ORCONE, in its Spanish initials), "this celebration is a way of showing support to the Afro-Colombian community of our country." "The celebration also seeks to incentives the participation of the Afro community, public entities, private companies and the citizenship in general, under the motto of the actual administration, "Bogotá Without Indifference." #dailyblackhistoryfacts #blackhistory365 #afrocolombianAfroday #freedomfighters #takeastand civilrights #blackpride #africanpride #blacksinaction

“Speak loudly for all the quiet places”
A quote that inspired Dave and Amy Freeman to spend an entire year living in the Boundary Waters & film a documentary to bring awareness of the threat that this beautiful, precious, sanctuary is under from Twin Metals (wanting to mine copper, nickel and other metals). We have to take a stand!!! Please watch their documentary “Bear Witness” — search for it on YouTube!!!! Spread the word!! Speak up! Speak loudly!
