do you have any morel inks about what's happening in mexico? im part of a club at my school where we focus on international affairs and problems and id like to present something about it but i feel like i dont know enough yet
What is happening in Mexico?
- How it began
On September 26, students our age (~19-22) were attacked by the local police and gangs in Iguala, Guerrero in Mexico. They were studying to become teachers at Escuela Normal Rural de Ayotzinapa. I have read many articles about how the students were in the town to ask for money to help pay tuition, to protest discrimination of rural school teachers, to travel to commemorate another student massacre of 1986, etc., so I am unsure of what is what here. But the students were on the buses and police blocked their way to get the students out. When they did, they opened fire on the students at once. Some students threw rocks back in self-defense, but the students were unarmed. Six people died and 17 were injured. Three students died, a taxi driver, a woman in a taxi, and a football player that was just 15 years old (x). The injured were taken away by an ambulance, local journalists came, etc but it was not over as more men came in plain clothes and rifles (x). These men are apart of Guerreros Unidos and work for the Beltran Leyva cartel. The students were forced into police vans and have since disappeared. 43 students are missing.
Some of the students escaped by hiding in nearby houses. One terrified student tried running away, but he was found later yet with his eyes gouged out and his face completely sliced away to the bone. A YOUNG MAN only 19 years old suffered through this. (As a warning, be aware that there are photos online and that while searching deep through articles and tags, they are present.) A survivor of the attack says this is “symbol of the cartel assassins” (x).
- The Mass Graves
~ More than a week later, on Saturday, authorities found mass graves nearby that has 28 burned remains with the tips (x). We fear that this may be some of the students. We won’t have DNA analysis to confirm anything for another two weeks, if not longer.
MORE mass graves were found yesterday, but it is still unknown about how many remains these graves have (x).
Keep in mind that the CITY MAYOR AND HIS WIFE are on the RUN. No one knows where they are.
We still don’t understand the reason behind this violence. Why kidnap and kill these young men? There are several explanations online, but how do you explain something like this? One story is that the mayer’s wife was giving a speech that day and did not want to be disrupted by the students. Keep in mind that the wife is the head of the city’s family welfare department and also has family connections to cartels (x). There are other alternatives online, but I don’t know. I just don’t.
- You cannot be silent about what is happening in Mexico
You can’t. You just can’t. Social media has a big impact and this story has to spread. In the last 24 hours I have seen an incredible boost in coverage about Ayotzinapa.
On Wednesday, thousands protested the disappearance of the students in Mexico.
Amounting pressure is being put on the Mexican government to find the missing students. There is also added outrage and demand ‘to punish politicians linked to organized crime’. It is no shock when considering the police corruption and brutality in Mexico. As Mexico bleeds, we all bleed.
Americans cannot ignore the violence of drug cartels and place it as just a problem in Mexico. There is too much innocent bloodshed. And because BILLIONS AND BILLIONS of dollars are collected in the United States by Mexican drug cartels, it is a shared responsibility (x). CHILDREN ARE DYING. Do not skim over these articles, do not just read them and do nothing, you have to act and spread the information. Do not be silent. Please, please, please help and pay attention.

DO YOU EVER SEE SOMETHING SO POORLY WRITTEN THAT YOU ACTUALLY REWRITE IT IN YOUR HEAD AS YOU’RE READING ALONG
"Mom, Dad…I’m a thespian."
*aggressively snaps while dramatically exiting stage right*
"The Bible says Adam and Eve,
not *snap snap* *jazz hands* and *dramatic leave*”
Mom: “your just going through a stage”
Me: “no mom, I’m going on stage” *strikes dramatic pose*
"Bullshit. The point of using someone’s preferred pronouns is to demonstrate that you respect their identity and want them to feel safe around you. If you think grammatical correctness is more important than making other people feel accepted and safe, then you are an asshole."
Aiya Van Kooten everyone
When Aiya Van Kooten stood face-to-face with a burglar in her bedroom, her left eye twitched, then she went into “predator mode”.
“I screamed at him… jumped off my chair, leaped over my bed and sprinted after him down the stairs,” she said.
This is the best story of my life
“Although she was the only one home, Van Kooten said she had no regard for her safety - instead, she said she was just overwhelmed with “rage“….. ummmmm Hero!!!
Haha, badass Muslim woman. Love it!!!
This lady is so awesome. She lives with her grandma and was studying and had a towel on her head and no shoes but she chased them out of her garden, kicked one up the arse as he climbed a fence, they dropped a camera and laptop, she flagged down a passing driver to help her continue the pursuit, and it turned out he was ex-military, and they finally caught one of them in a park and pinned him as the police arrived. Now she’s going to visit the burglar in prison for the next few months to help with his rehabilitation.
So in summary:
This lady doesn’t just defend her home and loved ones, she will hunt you down, team up with other skilled individuals, get you put away, and then teach you the consequences of your actions until you’re a valuable member of society once more.
Seriously she’s a frigging superhero.

“My name is Hannah “Cael” Hensel. I’m 16 years old. For as long as I can remember, I’ve thought myself different from other girls. At eight years old, I started using eating disorder behaviors. I didn’t realize that they were dangerous until I was 14 and my weight was plummeting into the 80s. I confided in my therapist who I was seeing for self harm issues that stemmed from living in a home with my abusive mother, who was suffering from drug addiction and multiple sclerosis. She helped me to stabilize at the time, however, I relapsed after awhile. My weight dropped to 100lbs and once again I was spending my days fatigued and obsessed, counting calories and looking in the mirror too often just to criticize my body. I was admitted to a residential treatment facility about 6 months ago, and it started me on a wonderful path to a fulfilling lifestyle. I only got a glimpse of it, but it was amazing while it lasted. About two months ago, anorexia snuck up on me. It has once again taken over my life, and I am seeking funding for a short stay in inpatient followed by a longer stay in residential. These things are costly and my family doesn’t have all the money we need to get me the help I need. Please, help me beat anorexia for good this time. I am determined to beat this disease once and for all. I need your help to survive. Thank you so much for giving me your time!”
This is a cause very important to me and my loved ones, Cael deserves to be happy and deserves another chance at recovery, she knows what it’s like to be in pain but she also knows what it’s like to be happy for once and she needs the money to get her back to that happy place, even if you cannot donate, please reblog and share this as much as you can so that someone that can donate will see this, thank you and god bless xo
I got my cousin to like me! 🙌 #family #outs1ders
Mama… just killed a man…
Picked him up and bit his head,
Swallowed him whole and now he’s dead
Mama… The fight has just begun
But now I’ve gone and thrown my limbs away
I’m gonna make you scream and cry,
You won’t be back in time for bed tomorrow,
You’ll be gone, you’ll be gone
Too late, my time has come
Body’s decapitating all the time
Goodbye, everybody, I’ve got to go
Gotta leave you all behind and face the titans on your own
She’s gonna cry,
It’ll be like you were never even born at all
I see a little silhouetto of a man,
Rivaille, Rivaille, will you do the Titan K.O,
Sexiness with lighting,
Very, very frightening.
I’m just a shifter nobody loves me
He is just a shifter with barely any family,
Spare him the crime of destroying the city
I’ll shift, then I’ll go?
No! We’ve let our cities go!
We must seal the hole!
We will catch her now!
Sina’s not our home!
(Don’t you know?)
Kill, Kill all the titans.
Eren, let me go, oh!
NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, BRO!
Oh, Wall Maria
(Wall Maria we will go)
My old basement has secrets put aside for me,
Can you kill all of them in a blink of an eye?
Could Marco come back and others who have already died?
Can’t cry over this, baby.
Just gotta let go
Oh, freckled jesus don’t you fear.
(Oh yeah, blood bath)
Killing titans matters,
Everyone can see.
Killing titans matters,
Killing titans matters,
All the bloodshed starts here…..
someone make an audio post of this. i mean, I’d do it but no one wants to hear my voice, so someone else has to
I have finally hit my breaking point. For as long as I can remember I have endured my mother’s abuse, whether it is verbal, emotional, or as seen here physical. I can expect some act of violence on a daily basis, and her beating me is not an usual occurrence, but today something snapped. My mother did this unprovoked, and this time she didn’t stop. Usually it’s bad for a little while and then she’s done, today it went on for what seemed like forever. At a certain point I decided I was going to do something I never do, call the police. You see, my mother is a highly respected and very well known person where I live. She is on the board of ed, worked for CPS for many years, and is close personal friends with people like the local chief of police, director of our local CPS unit, and so on. I always knew that calling wouldn’t go anywhere and just upset her more, but today I had to try. While she was kicking me I found my opportunity, and somehow managed to get away from someone more than twice my size. I ran as fast as I could, knocking things over behind my, trying to find a phone. I dialed and they listened and my mother proceeding to beat me over it, while I screamed for help. For the second time today, I managed to get away from her and ran to my room. I barely had enough time to lock my door, before she starting trying to get it, to the point that she ripped my door off the frame. I decided I was going to stay locked in there, until the police came. The past few months I have been collecting evidence against her, voice recordings, pictures like these, and videos of her violence, so they couldn’t dispute what was going on. But I was dead wrong.
When the officer finally came up to my room, I attempted to tell him my side of the story, but before I could get a sentence out he silenced me. HE told me that this was my mothers house, and I needed to live by her rules. If I didn’t she had the right to punish me. He also told me to be tankful for her, because he wanted to press assault charges against me. finally, he refused, despite my begging, for him to take me to a shelter for teens.
I am utterly disgusted by the injustice that occurred today. I pray there is no one else out there who is living in such a situation. I am not sure exactly what I am getting out of writing this, except maybe that it’s just nice to be able to open up about this, when I have had to keep it a secret my whole life. idk. sorry for posting such heavy shit.
Signal boost the fuck out of this
praising your kid for doing something “normal” people do and outright acknowledging it as something abnormal for them (“you finally came out of your cave upstairs!” “you finally put some nice clothes on!”) has a very real chance of making them feel like their normal is below average and looked down upon
tldr don’t say shit like “oh, youre talking to us, this is new”
dear lord jesus yes
So I had a realization about leo rising people recently. I figure since I’m an aqua rising and see everyone else as being selfish that leo risings must see everyone else as being too absorbed with others and that they probably feel neglected or unloved sometimes because they want everyone to pay attention to them. I mean maybe it sounds like no brainer thing but it’s a thought I had :p
