If you’re protesting abortion, the Supreme Court says you can get right in women’s faces and scream at them on their way into the clinic. Because freedom of speech.
But if you try and protest the murder of a black man, you get tear gas fired at you.
Went to Jacob’s Well today. It’s a natural spring area and nature park! In the stream there is the spring which is that giant black hole looking thing. It pumps fresh drinkable water and the opening that you can see goes down a good 25 - 30 ft before opening up into another cavern that’s estimated to be 120ft. There’s areas where you can jump off into it and I made a lot of cool friends. We went free diving down but made it nowhere near the bottom. It’s so clear and so fresh and there is an abundance of wildlife all around. Also it’s got the highest death rate of any natural spring in the State of Texas. Scuba divers go down into the caverns and get lost and end up loosing their lives. So I guess I swam with some spirits as well!

Still confused as to why the windows on the plane did this but I’m glad they did
Hedy Epstein, a 90-year-old Holocaust survivor, was arrested on Monday during unrest over the death of Michael Brown,KMOV reports.
Epstein, who aided Allied forces in the Nuremberg trials, was placed under arrest in downtown St. Louis, Missouri “for failing to disperse” during a protest of Governor Jay Nixon’s decision to call in National Guard into Ferguson. Eight others were also arrested.
“I’ve been doing this since I was a teenager. I didn’t think I would have to do it when I was ninety,” Epstein told The Nation during her arrest. “We need to stand up today so that people won’t have to do this when they’re ninety.”
