"Where does the violet tint end
And the orange tint begin?
Distinctly we see the difference of the colors
But where exactly does the one
first blending enter the other..
So with sanity, and insanity."
--Herman Melville

“Let me tell you something about wolves, child. When the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies, but the pack survives. Summer is the time for squabbles. In winter, we must protect one another, keep each other warm, share our strengths.”
On the surface, A Storm of Swords is “high summer for House Lannister”, just like Tyrion says. But when you look closer, and compare their fates, it’s about the fall of the Lannisters and the enduring strength of the Starks. The Starks stay loyal at heart even after their parents’ deaths, but the Lannisters are utterly broken.
Sansa becomes a perceptive “player of the game” at the same time Cersei becomes paranoid and unstable.
Arya becomes a great warrior at the same time Jaime loses his skills as a swordsman.
Bran becomes truly wise and embraces his House’s magical legacy at the same time Tyrion becomes a hateful alcoholic and is disinherited.

  • 6-year old:

    Mommy, why is that man dressed like a lady?

  • Mother:

    That is a lady. She was just born with the wrong body.

  • 6-year old:

    How did that happen?

  • Mother:

    Nobody really knows. But she's working to fix it, and that's what's important.

  • 6-year old:

    Okay! *runs up to obviously self-conscious woman*

  • 6-year old:

    Hey! Miss!

  • Lady:

    ...yes?

  • 6-year old:

    You look really pretty in your skirt!

  • Lady:

    Thank you!

  • *Kid skips back to her mom, and literally everyone in the vicinity smiles*

  • I'd just like to point out that it wasn't hard to explain this to a child at all...... Next excuse please?

National Moment of Silence 2014

On August 14, 2014, citizens across America will gather in solidarity to hold vigils and observe a moment of silence to honor victims of Police Brutality
Police Brutality in the United States continues to be a pervasive problem that affects communities across the country. In recent years, we have had news of too many people losing their lives as a result of police brutality. We have also heard too many stories of people being sexually and otherwise physically assaulted by police. We are gathering together to observe a National Moment of Silence to pay respect to the lives lost and/or forever changed by the brutality of the police state.Too many citizens have suffered. Their families and friends need our positive energy and support in this moment of anger, frustration, fear, and helplessness.

How the #NMOS14 Began: 

How social media helped facilitate a national moment of silence to honor victims of police brutality, show solidarity with their families, and allow communities to come together in a moment of mourning and support.
