A Tokyo Trini Tumbles


thinksquad:

A 5-year-old boy with an inoperable brain tumor has one wish for his birthday: a box full of birthday cards with his name on them.

Danny Nickerson, from Foxboro, Massachusetts, was diagnosed with an inoperable and chemotherapy-resistant tumor this past October. He has stopped going to kindergarten during therapy, and gets lonely, according to his family.

"He can recognize his name now," the boy’s mother Carley Nickerson told ABC News. "When he saw his name on the package from magical fairies on Easter, he was so happy."

Nickerson says personalized cards make Danny happy, and has opened a P.O. box to collect letters from well-wishers.

Doctors say less than 10% of children diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, like Danny, live beyond 18 months.

"I don’t really believe in that," Nickerson says. "He is doing great. Every day is a blessing for us."

Danny has received about 40 letters so far, and his birthday is on July 25th.

Letters can be sent to:

Danny Nickerson
P.O. Box 212
Foxboro, MA 02035

I think this speaks for itself. Accepting a person doesn’t mean you get to put limits on their freedom. You can’t be an ally and want us to stop talking, or labeling, or demanding to be heard.  

Acceptance has no exceptions. Period. 

They refuse to hear you though

Black men never cease to disappoint me

This nigga got some nerve tryna call her ugly. The niggas on Twitter are just a blatant example of how ain’t shit we are!

It’s always dark skinned men shitting on dark skinned women. Like…. did this nigga not look in the mirror when he was brushing his teeth in the morning? And no she’s not beautiful, she’s drop dead gorgeous. Looking like a goddess and shit.

But she IS beautiful.

*eye rolling to my grave*

darkskinned black men need to seriously think through their shit, i swear to god. and i am SICK of women’s decorative function being used to shit on us further. Even if she was ugly, which she fucking isnt dude interrogate your white supremacy why doncha, the fact remains that she is worthy of respect and love just the fucking same. and i am sick of the bullshit. I am sick sick SICK of the fact that woman in particular gotta bear the burden of fitting arbitrary conventions in order to be treated with a bit of fucking humanity. FUCK YOU.

Black women have to focus on loving ourselves and each other, because no one else if going to do it for us

R U SERIOUS?!

FDA approves pill to prevent HIV infections 
The drug, Truvada, is the first medication intended to prevent HIV infections in people having sex with infected individuals.
(JEFF CHIU/AP) 

IT JUST GOT REAL

What good news for the world.

Remember when this made the news weeks ago and US news outlets didn’t find it worth reporting?

BLESS THIS

This should have like, 1,000% more notes.
This is amazing.

Are you telling me that those Ryan Gosling cupcakes have 45,000 notes and this post hasn’t even reached 5,000?

Relevant.

And it was on this day that this appeared on my dash, and I said “Damn, finally some good news!” and reblogged the hell out of it. 

And people are already being slut-shamed for taking it: http://www.out.com/entertainment/popnography/2014/05/20/why-i-am-truvada-whore


so damn expensive.

if this was a white girl this would have had the notes 3 weeks ago

People are sending him racist messages telling him it’s not gonna happen and he doesn’t belong in Disney World over this post. So we’re gonna reblog it even more.

I remember this guy! Wow, it’s still only a little bit over half. Rebloggan’!

I don’t normally do these ‘reblog if’ things, but hell, if it annoys racists, why not.

That’s kinda where I stand on things.  I mostly ignore them, but kid, YOU’RE GOIN’ TO DISNEY WORLD.

I love how racists came to the party and we promptly got another 100k reblogs.  Like, WE ARE WEE AND SOMETIMES PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE, BUT FUCK YOU, HE’S GONNA RIDE THE HAUNTED MANSION UNTIL HE’S DONE.

EVERYONE GO TO DISNEYWORLD!!! DISNEY WORLD FOR EVERYONE!!!
