The Great Dictator was a film directed, written, directed, produced, scored by and starring British comedian, Charlie Chaplin. The film advanced a stirring, controversial, condemnation of Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, fascism, antisemitism and the Nazis. After dedicated service in the Great War, a Jewish barber (Charles Chaplin) spends years in an army hospital recovering from his wounds, unaware of the simultaneous rise of fascist dictator Adenoid Hynkel (also Chaplin) and his anti-Semitic policies. When the barber, who bears a remarkable resemblance to Hynkel, returns to his quiet neighborhood, he is stunned by the brutal changes and recklessly joins a beautiful girl (Paulette Goddard) and her neighbors in rebelling.

But even without knowing what the movie is about, just by reading an excerpt of the speech (written in the photo), you can see how fitting this is to our society's current state. Wherever we are in the world, wherever we go, we see a loss of humanity. It's sad.
But we can do something, little by little, our action influences another: whether we want to or not.
In this would full of inhumanity, cleverness, hate, and discrimination.
Be humane, kind, gentle, compassionate be loving.
Because "when the world feels crazy, that's your cue to keep loving people like crazy" -------------
Brad Montague has the most encouraging tweets and posts. I came across his profile on twitter when I needed most, there he posts creatives to encourage people, kids at the most, that this world isn't supposed to be like this. He reminds everyone that there's beauty within each of us, and that beauty is all around us. We just forget, but love makes us remember.
I'm so pumped to be heading to Orlando and thrilled for this opportunity to write. Looking forward to the magnificent growth that all this will come with. Nothing like grabbing hold of the reins of clarity, harvesting the wisdom from my life, and making it relevant for others. All over now to pinning doubt down and considering my voice worthy of being free. I know I'm getting there by the way I feel in my skin. Excited ... it's time 🌱 Happy long weekend NZ 🖤
still trying to figure out how i lucked out as much as i did with this guy right here... i mean, seriously, look at him 😻😻😻 #hearteyesforever
thank you from the bottom of our hearts to @euroshelb for capturing these sweet moments for us. you are so incredibly talented and it was so fun spending time with such a sweet soul this evening. more to come! 💛💋
I've seen a lot of people try to discredit transgenders/transsexuals by calling the surgery portion a "mutilation of genitals," but that's not actually the case at all. To call it that just shows one's close-minded ignorance, which is somewhat understandable, I suppose. If you're not actually trans, you have no reason to put in the research as to what goes into it.
But I did !! Allow me to provide a quick summary.
The main goal of transition surgery is to be as efficient as possible with the use of existing genital tissues. Very little tissues are actually removed, and it's rare for tissues to be taken from other locations. It's not "mutilating" like some might say, but modifying it.
As for top surgery, it's basically the same procedure used for removing tissues from people with breast cancer, or for a breast reduction for cosmetic reasons.
Top surgery and bottom surgery are no more harmful than plastic surgery or removing an organ or anything else like that that's widely accepted as okay. It is a modification, not a mutilation. Okay? Okay.
That is all.
hey guys . it's been a minute since i've done any #encouraging#inspiring or just self related videos .. but it's been long over due . i promise i don't do these for the #likes . more so , to #help#uplift#motivate and so you all can understand my way of thinking . "MIND " is powerful . pain never really goes away , we just learn to put it in our #subconscious but then something happens and it's brought to our #conscious . then we react to same old situation that doesn't even need to be acknowledged. it's all in the mind . once you learn to control your mind .. problems will be easier to handle .. your offenses will be easier to handle . #selfcontrol#mind#control 🌸❤️
This is one of the highlights of my week! A really uplifting message from a workshop participant: “”I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the day course at Abernant earlier this year.
It gave me the confidence to do 'what was in my head' even though all other felting I had seen prior to this was 3D or landscape with big swathes of colour.
I have since met someone else who 'watercolour paints with wool' in the same way, but her style is very different.
I am doing more felting now, mostly landscapes, but the occassional flower or owl!””
How lovely is that? ❤️
Trail mix has been my saving grace lately! I started making it a few months ago because I had so many left over ingredients in my cabinets from recipes I’ve made and I loved it. 😻 Now I actually go to the store to buy ingredients specifically to make it! 😂
My favorite recipe is:
•1 cup of plain almonds
•1/2 cup of pumpkin seeds
•1/2 cup of sunflower seeds
•1 cup of unsweetened toasted coconut chips
•1 cup of chocolate chips
•1 tablespoon of cinnamon
This trail mix is high in vitamins, healthy fats, and it’s great to snack on throughout the day plus it’s literally the easiest thing ever to make! 🤗
