The Civil Wars make me go unff…. Kingdom Come is the best on the Hunger Games soundtrack, besides Taylor Swift’s Safe and Sound, which they also sing in..
If I read another post about how this is the “White Man’s burden”, I’m going to scream. How about this; lets say there were no white people supporting this, whatsoever. Would that be better? No, that would be considered racist. So how about we applaud every one who has reblogged, “liked”, and tweeted, to get the word out? Because honestly, even though this has apparently been going on for years, a lot of us have never heard of it, because we were kids when it all started, but now that we’re adults, we want to help… what’s so bad about that? If everyone participates in virtual activism, lots of people will realize that you can buy the merch from Invisible Children, and do some real activism. Get people to write to their states govt. leaders, and donate money to charities that support this type of thing, and people are going to notice. It will be on your local news, and hopefully even national news, and like my husband said, we will keep our govt. and military thinking about it, and letting them know that the american people think finding Kony and the LRA is a worthy cause, and then they will hopefully continue to see that it is a worthy cause. See how that works? My husband has several Ugandan friends from when he was overseas (Army) a few months ago, and they all support KONY 2012, as well as any other charities or organizations that want to help them.
To the people who are questioning Invisible Children’s practices, they have a response, and yes, Visible Children posted it, and approves.
My great-grandmother, who is 4’5, 92 and still kickin’, has suffered from OCD all her life. She still cleans her house from top to bottom every day.
Her son, my 61 yr. old maternal pawpaw, has suffered from Tourette’s Syndrome for most of his life (OCD is a form of Tourette’s) and it has progressively gotten worse over the years. Parts of his face constantly twitch, he stutters a lot during normal conversation, and he constantly cusses with almost every breath, and doesn’t realize it. He’s also a bit OCD in the cleaning department. He refuses to get help.
We think my mother, 38, has ADD and is suffering from early short-term memory loss. She hasn’t forgotten her way home or anything that major yet, but we fear it’s only another decade or so down the road. She’s afraid to get tested for anything. She has also been diagnosed/medicated for depression for the past few years.
My 14 yr. old half-sister (we have the same mother) has been on ADHD medication since the age of 4. Her attention span, literally, barley exists, and she’s had to be home-schooled since she was 8, to make sure she gets the one-on-one attention she really needs.
I have never been tested for anything, because I seem to have a little bit of all of the above in certain areas of my life, but nothing that has really affected me negatively. Really, my only fear right now is the memory loss and my attention span. I could tell my husband one day that I think a certain car is really ugly, and then a few days later tell him that I love the way the exact same car looks (it’s happened) and not remember saying that I didn’t like it before. That’s only one example though. I’m only 22, so we’re not too worried about any problems yet, but I will definitely start getting tested for memory-related illnesses in the next decade or so.
My only anxiety issues are really only when I have to take medicine. I can’t swallow pills. No matter how small, as soon as I feel it in the back of my mouth, I freeze up, and no matter how many times I try, I can’t get it down. It’s the like, if that pill goes down my throat, the entire world will just end.. I guess maybe it’s more like a phobia. I know that it’s going to go down easily and that it will not choke me, but most of the time I just can’t make myself do it, and I either chew it up or spit it out and lie, and say I took it.
I just want to point out that these kinds of disorders ARE genetic, because these problems only run through my maternal grandfathers side of the family.
I have to reblog because IN YOUR FACE all you freaks who believe in that doomsday crap.
