98 year old dobri dobrev, a man who lost his hearing in the second world war, walks 10 kilometers from his village in his homemade clothes and leather shoes to the city of sofia, where he spends the day begging for money.
though a well known fixture around several of the city’s chruches, known for his prostrations of thanks to all donors, it was only recently discovered that he has donated every penny he has collected — over 40,000 euros — towards the restoration of decaying bulgarian monasteries and churches and the utility bills of orphanages, living instead off his monthly state pension of 80 euros.
there’s still good in this world
Friendly reminder that this exists.
not my gif btw
THIS IS THE FAMILY THEY SHOULD HAVE HAD. THIS IS WHAT IT COULD HAVE BEEN! THEY COULD HAVE BEEN A HAPPY FAMILY TOGETHER! SIRIUS WOULD TEACH THEM ALL THE PRANKS AND LILY AND REMUS WOULD REMIND THEM NOT TO FORGET THEIR STUDIES. ALL OF THEM EATING CHRISTMAS DINNER TOGETHER AND HAVING GATHERINGS WITH THE WEASLEY’S AND HERMIONE. THIS COULD HAVE HAPPENED BUT NO, VOLDEMORT LIKES TO RUIN EVERYTHING AND DESTROY LIVES.

This is what feminists mean when we talk about rape culture: these cards are considered socially acceptable and men buy them. Women are socialized into believing they are nothing more than fucktoys and men are raised to believe that rape is a joke.
Stores sell merchandise encouraging men to beat and rape women, and men are complaining about misandry hats? Fucking hell.
what the fuck?
“Keep calm and rape”
WHo in the fuck would buy that shit
who is selling that?
please someone tell me so I know never to shop there
I’m not kidding that shit is disgusting
I went to that Solid Gold Bomb site from the Keep Calm t-shirts and their apology for the rape jokes is basically, “it was a computer error.” Yeah fucking right.
This. Just. No words. No words.
All of this debate on TV, all the news, everybody talking about Boston - and I just can’t help but think of this 19 year old boy. This kid, who’s lived a completely normal life, considered a really sweet guy by his teachers and friends alike, why did he do this?
What is it that made him do something so horrendous? This obviously has nothing to do with the cause of the Chechen rebels - he lived almost his entire life in the US, his parents, his family obviously loved the US; plus the Chechen rebels aren’t even against Americans in general.
And all those people who think he deserves to be tortured, well, here’s my question. It’s easy to say, they killed, so we’ll kill them too. But how does that separate them from us? What remains the difference between those who kill, and us?
He deserves punishment, yes, but this way?
