imperfect perfection

I feel like I should say something about 9/11. Today haunts me every year. Two days before my birthday and all I can remember was the fear. I was nowhere near the twin towers but my family and now myself are soldiers. I remember that day. Being escorted out of the school with all of the other army brats. I was 6 and face to face with a dog searching us to go in the gate of the base. And then the fear of what if they come here because military bases are huge targets too. Every year I feel the pain and fear as if it just happened. So on this day I pray for all the families of the fallen and lost. And that we never have to live in that state of fear again.

So I recently saw some hurtful things on my dash about men who basically said dark skinned women aren’t worth the ground they walk on. Their are fathers, and even mothers, who dislike the fact their own child is dark skin. This has to be stopped. But of course, stuck in this slavery and “white supremacy” mentality, no one likes to listen.

Tell that little dark skinned girl with coiled hair crying in the corner because her skin isn’t the color of sand and her hair doesn’t flow and curl like an ocean wave that her skin of pure mahogany and hair that reaches toward the heavens is loved and appreciated.

what I love about this is that it uplifts dark skinned girls without demeaning or insulting lighter sisters… this is so important!!

As a paranormal/horror blogger I can assure you these child abuse ads are the most scariest and saddest thing I’ve ever seen. Probably because things like that are happening RIGHT NOW at this very INSTANT. 

And it’s horrifying but hopefully these ads bring more attention towards it. 

I got these from this buzzfeed article. You can view more ads and the sources for these ads there as well. 

This is so fucking important
