The Hate U Give
This is Angie Thomas’ first book and it was amazing. It’s contemporary (which some fantasy YA goers doubt) but this book. This book. It’s so hard to put into words but, I’ll try. The hate u give is about a girl named Starr who lives in a poor black neighborhood and goes to a nice (very much white) prep school. ( extra points to this book because of the African-American female protagonist) She witnesses one of her best friends die of a gun shot- from the police. This books sheds light on a very real issue of police brutality particularly to African Americans. It gives you her very real perspective and offers you the chance to experience the closest thing a lot of us will get to empathy of the unfortunate people who have to deal with police brutality. The plot itself is one of those “I’m sitting here until this book is done”. It’s a little predictable but in a way that you want it to happen. You’re cheering on Starr to do something you really want her to do, and she does it. (Well at least in my case) I really hope you pick up this books and read it. I swear it’s something you won’t regret.

Jay was nervous as he always was while standing on the galaxy pad. Being crowned the sword bearer meant that he alone carried the burden of protecting the community. They didn't survive off of fear, only the opposite, bravery into the unknown. The community needed galaxy material to stay a float and survive, and it was his duty to do so. So he closed his eyes and took a deep breath to calm himself. Then he stepped in the unknown...
I knew I wanted to tell a story about the galaxy when I was putting this piece together. To me the collage seemed to be a community floating, so I took the galaxy and community parts and combined them to build the story. Everyone has to deal with being nervous and traveling into uncharted territory in our lives. Most of the time it's our mind playing tricks on us, convincing us that we can't accomplish something before we even try. But pushing through that fear can result in some of our greatest accomplishments.
Via @efraim_arends - 22 years ago today was the Million Man March. The Million Man March was a gathering en masse of African-American men in Washington, D.C., on October 16, 1995. Called by Louis Farrakhan, it was held on and around the National Mall. The National African American Leadership Summit, a leading group of civil rights activists and the Nation of Islam working with scores of civil rights organizations, including many local chapters of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (but not the national NAACP) formed the Million Man March Organizing Committee. The founder of the National African American Leadership Summit, Dr. Benjamin Chavis, Jr. served as National Director of the Million Man March. #millionmanmarch#1995#nationofislam#louisfarrakhan#drbenjaminchavis#washingtondc#africanamerican#america#history

Repost @shepp_for_mayor "Today I got the privilege of participating in the retirement ceremony of two of the finest Americans I have ever had the pleasure of serving with. SMSgt Tonnetta Stiff and SMSgt Kevin Stiff for the time I have known you I have watched you achieve your goals together and have been honored by both your wisdom and guidance. I envy the civilian world that you are returning to for they will now get to experience the sheer awesomeness that is Team Stiff. I could not be more proud of the both of you and hope that whatever lies next is ready for the two of you!" #USAF#MilitaryCouple
