The story of a Manchester victim- Martyn Hett. I just sat and cried.

A Mum Didn’t Sell Anything At A Craft Fair So Twitter Bought Everything

Martyn Hett is a 28-year-old from Manchester, England. What you can't see in this photo is that he's actually son of the year after he saved his mum's knitting career via Twitter.

No words...

Bwahahahahahaha... Trump and company are desperately trying to

get the story back to the sword dance, the curtsy or anything.

The memes about him putting his hands on the orb have taken over.
I cannot stop laughing.

Summoning Sauron.....

Meet the Woman Who Cared for Hundreds of Abandoned Gay Men Dying of AIDS

Between 1984 and the mid-1990s, before better HIV drugs effectively rendered her obsolete, Ruth Coker Burks cared for hundreds of dying people, many of them gay men who had been abandoned by their families. She buried more than three dozen of them herself, after their families refused to claim their bodies. For many of those people, she is now the only person who knows the location of their graves.

It started in 1984, in a hospital hallway. Ruth Coker Burks was 25 and a young mother when she went to University Hospital in Little Rock, Ark., to help care for a friend who had cancer. Her friend eventually went through five surgeries, Burks said, so she spent a lot of time that year parked in hospitals. That’s where she was the day she noticed the door, one with “a big, red bag” over it. It was a patient’s room. “I would watch the nurses draw straws to see who would go in and check on him. It’d be: ‘Best two out of three,’ and then they’d say, ‘Can we draw again?’ ”

She knew what it probably was, even though it was early enough in the epidemic for the disease to be called GRID — gay-related immune deficiency — instead of AIDS. She had a gay cousin in Hawaii and had asked him about the stories of a gay plague after seeing a report on the news. He’d told her, “That’s just the leather guys in San Francisco. It’s not us. Don’t worry.” Still, in her concern for him, she’d read everything she could find about the disease over the previous months, hoping he was right.

MailStorm: Let's deliver a message to Paul Ryan.

"Paul Ryan has turned off ALL of his public telephones & fax machines in response to protests in favor of Obamacare, Planned Parenthood, Medicare, etc. And he is NOT accepting signed petitions. Instead, he's TURNING AWAY voters who deliver the petitions.
So, let’s see what 67 million postcards look like in his driveway. It will take you just 10 minutes. Please start mailing postcards to his home:
Let's inundate this man - who was elected to be a representative of the people - with an avalanche of mail, so our beliefs are heard. He works for US, not the other way around."
Copy/paste and share.
