I feel like I’m falling in love with my best friend. She confessed that she has feelings for me as well but does not want to pursue them at this time because she isn’t ready for a relationship and she’s going away to a different college in a few months. I’ve been briefly dating my crush and we were supposed to take things to the next level soon but I can’t stop thinking about my best friend and how I’m going to lose her no matter what. The fact that she’s leaving kills me. This past week I’ve just been carrying around a heaviness in my chest.

This is beautiful and it’s amazing to me that it had such a positive outcome and not lifelong hateful grudges, which is probably what these attackers deserved.
I honestly have no words for how beautiful this is. Forgiveness and love - they’re powerful things.
Keep in mind that these people were supposed to be from two different “races” that were set by the Belgians. The hutus and the tutsi’s. These people could be siblings, but one “race” was still considered to be supreme over the other.
The Rwandan Genocide is a tragedy that really needs to get more attention than it does. 500,000–1,000,000 people were murdered, the vast majority being Tutsis; however, Hutus were also killed if they didn’t support the genocide, tried to help Tutsis, or basically showed any signs of humanity that could be considered “traitorous.”
It’s really fantastic how these people have been able to atone for their crimes, and it’s even more fantastic how the victims have been able to move on and forgive the people who did all of those awful things to them. I’ve read a lot about the genocide (thanks to being in a Holocaust class where we also covered several other genocides), and I have to say that the Rwandan people are pretty incredible; there are stories all over the place about Tutsis who have spoken out against the dangers of perpetuating hate, and they (rightly) point out that only forgiveness and compassion can break the cycle of hate and devastation that started the genocide in the first place.
Finally, I highly recommend this memoir, called Left to Tell, by a truly amazing young woman named Immaculee Ilibagiza.
Like these pictures, Left to Tell really highlights the amazing power of forgiveness. The memoir covers Immaculee’s idillic childhood and teen years in Rwanda before her life was torn apart by radical Hutus who started a campaign of genocide throughout the country. Much of it centers around Immaculee’s devout Catholic faith and how it was able to help her forgive the people who murdered her family.
And before people go “Oh, it’s about a Catholic, why would I want to read that?” you should know that Immaculee is one of the most beautiful and inspirational people I’ve ever come across and learning her story really helped me in a lot of ways. Not only do you hear the firsthand experience of one of the bloodiest and most tragic genocides in history, you are also exposed to the true strength and vitality of the human spirit and what it really means to forgive.
i can’t tell if people are deliberately misreading things or actually this dense
had a nice laugh you have to see these posts
Lol then they can all go to prison with the rest of the murders, whom a majority were also raised Christian.
Murder is literally the exact opposite of what their religion preaches. smh

trans people without dysphoria exist
"you don’t need dysphoria to be trans-"
"ftm isn’t a medical condition-"
"I use bun/buns/bunself pronouns-"
"all truscum are disgusting-"
I don’t get the whole “being trans is a medical condition thing” because being trans is something that can’t be changed no matter how much surgery you get or how many hormones you take. If you’re trans you’re always gonna be that way.
You can say that about so many other medical conditions so…..
Half of the medical conditions I have are never going to go away and can only be managed which is exactly the same as me being trans. You can’t FIX it but you can MANAGE it….
so let me get this straight. anti-choicers took $500,000 dollars worth of pennies and sealed them in a glass case as a “memorial” to “victims” of abortion. i’m going to say that again. these people have locked away $500,000 dollars as a “tribute” to dead blobs of cells instead of donating that money to actual living breathing children who don’t have basic necessities or homes.
anti-choicers are incredible
