I define myself by the courage I’ve found to forge new roads.
I do not define myself by how many disappointments I’ve faced.
I define myself by the forgiveness and faith I’ve found to start again.
I do not define myself by how long a relationship lasted.
I define myself by how much I have loved, and am willing to love again.
I do not define myself by how many times I’ve been knocked down.
I define myself by how many times I’ve struggled to my feet.
I am not my pain.
I am not my past.
I am that which has emerged from the fire."
Aaron Hill is a disabled boy in Okeechobee who was lured out of his home by a girl claiming to want to go on a date. Once to the location she chose, he was ambushed by Andrew Wheeler and a gang of at least 8 other people. Andrew beat him senseless, held a knife to his throat, And told him he was going to shoot and kill him. This was filmed the whole time, but currently this is the only video I can get a hold of. The video was on Andrew’s facebook and he went around bragging about his crime. He was arrested, but only charged with minor assault and no charges or arrests are being made on the others involved. Some of the others involved have family in the Okeechobee police department and also DCF. One of the parents even destroyed evidence to protect their guilty little brat. So now the Okeechobee Police Department are trying to bury this story because some of the kids have ties to the department. We’re asking everyone to spread this around that we want justice for Aaron, that if anyone has a copy of the video please take it to the media. We need all media outlets to know this is a cover up and we will not accept it. Please download and spread this video. We’re using the hashtag JusticeForAaron.
PLEASE, if you have it, PLEASE make a copy and take it to all media, ALL MEDIA, not just Okeechobee I’m talking surrounding counties. This is extremely important. Aaron and his mother are getting death threats and they deserve justice. We need more people! Okeechobee is a little town run by the Good Ole Boys. Ferguson is allowing them to think this is okay. News channel 25 contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org or 5616942525! We need this to blow up to make this stop. In the wake of Michael Brown and the others that have been hurt by police, we cannot let them bury this like a bunch of crime lords. Their job is to protect us, not protect the guilty from justice. And by the way there’s been ANOTHER unarmed black man killed by police. He was shot in the back and he was complying with police orders. He was also mentally handicapped. This. Needs. To. Stop.
Please, signal boost the HELL out of this. #JusticeForAaron
WARNING THIS IS A VERY GRAPHIC VIDEO BUT IT NEEDS ATTENTION BROUGHT TO IT. As someone who has a disabled brother this hits home quite hard. If someone as defenseless as Aaron and his family don’t receive the justice and peace that they deserve then I have NO fucking hope for this planet anymore. This is not an isolated instance either. Disabled people are treated less than who they actually are, even like animals at times and THIS NEEDS TO STOP. THEY ARE PEOPLE AND THEY ARE HERE TO LIVE THEIR LIVES IN PEACE AND HAPPINESS JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE.
1. Money will likely be in short supply. You’ll find a student loan doesn’t stretch very far.
2. It’s likely that you’ll feel a bit homesick at first, but for most individuals that doesn’t last too long. Just throw yourself into the activities around you and try to avoid any visits home.
We Slytherins are brave, yes, but not stupid. For instance, given the choice, we will always choose to save our own necks.
A baby wombat has made a full recovery after being found in the pouch of her dead mother’s body. After noticing the animal at the side of the road, a quick thinking passerby decided to check if the poor creature was carrying any offspring. Incredibly, despite its mother being struck by a car, the teeny critter was found shivering inside its pouch, still suckling at its mother teat. After an urgent phone call from a passerby to the local wildlife helpline, voluntary animal carer, Kim Hunter, 48 came to the rescue of the baby wombat and took it home.
