I am only reposting this to say how horrible of a mindset this is. Be thankful for those who even attempt to speak in ur time of grief or pain. The right words dont always come so easily, but at least someone cared enough to try. Instead of judging their lack of perfection or grace, learn and grow for urself. Be grateful. by staci

Many American GIs took a heart shield bible with them into combat.  The bibles were sent to them by loved ones.  Most consisted of the new testament covered with metal plates and were kept in a soldier's shirt pocket, over his heart.   The intent, of course, being to stop an enemy's bullet from striking their heart.  Below is an example of a heart shield bible used during World War II. by francisca

“People were intrinsically selfish, and many hated the idea of a woman in charge of the Institute. They would not put themselves at risk for her. Only a few weeks ago he would have said the same thing about himself. Now, knowing Charlotte, he realized to his surprise, the idea of risking himself for her seemed an honor, as it would be to most Englishmen to risk themselves for the queen.” - Gabriel Lightwood #TID #theinfernaldevices #charlottebranwell #shadowhunters #consul #londoninstitute by josefina

Albertus Seba (1665-1736), a Dutch apothecary, had one of the most extensive collections of natural curiosities in the world. He commissioned artists to draw all his specimens, then had them engraved and published as a set of folios. This poster was created from those folios. It’s a great tribute to the beginning of today’s natural history museums. All of this and more is presented in an informative inset at the bottom of the poster. by proteamundi

Rhinos really don't see well ... not at all! The record-sized white rhinoceros was about 4,500 kg (10,000 lb). And, they run faster than rabbits can race along the ground. When you are that big, you don't worry about what you might run into. In fact there is an unusual genius within the nature of us all to look at something that is huge, and read between the lines as to whether or not we should attempt to stand in it's way. Maybe this critter should be the new mascot of the American Patriot! by AislingH
