US Constitution, First Amendment: The right to assemble, to have free speech, to have freedom of the press.
Ferguson Police: Kicks out media and limits protestors to a “First Amendment Area”
funny, i thought the WHOLE COUNTRY was a first amendment area. silly me.
Funny that when they do this I only hear about it on tumblr, but when they try to limit guns and the second amendment it literally becomes a congressional uproar.
Stop for a second
Take a breath.
You are alive
Put your hand on your chest.. What’s that? It’s a heartbeat. Your heartbeat. Your eyes are reading this and your brain in processing the words into thoughts. Think about everything..
.. think about nothing for a while. Sit in silence. Laugh a little. Don’t forget to smile at the person who holds open that door or the stranger beside you at the bus stop who let’s you go first. Share your umbrella when it’s raining and bask in the sunlight when it’s not. Let it kiss your cheeks and create tiny freckles to cover your nose. Say hello to the old lady who is sitting alone.. maybe she has been alone for a while and needs to hear a friendly voice. Visit libraries and spend the day falling in love with beautiful stories. Volunteer at an animal shelter because maybe you’re not the only one who needs some love. Stay up late in the summer to watch the sun set only to see it rise a few hours later. Have snowball fights in the dark winter months and return home with red cheeks and cold hands.
Take a breath.
You are alive. So live."
