Ask Polly — The Cut (via whiskeysoaked)
Imagine what you could do, if you really loved something, if you weren’t just phoning it in. You’re so good even when you’re half-assing it. Imagine, what a supernova you could be, if you actually cared about something and believed in it, if you brought the full force of your intelligence and your passion (it’s in there somewhere) and your hard work and focused it on something that MATTERED to you.
Shut out all of those old, negative voices from your past, and listen to your own voice instead. You are not full of shit. You are full of energy and wit and brilliance and raw potential. And you are on your way to a whole new life.
Michael Brown’s parents held a press conference today and they reiterated their hope that Darren Wilson would be arrested. I could pretend to be surprised that he’s still free, but it took the police six weeks to arrest George Zimmerman.
They’ve already protested. Some have already rioted. The vast majority of the media is in agreement that something is off. And people around the world are in support of Michael Brown, but Darren Wilson is still at home.
What else can we do? What else can we do?
