Girl Who Was Called ‘Ugly’ After Donating Hair To Cancer Patients Gets Major Support From Internet

A few snips at the hair salon turned Jetta Fosberg’s selfless act into a school nightmare.

After the 10-year-old Ohio girl cut and donated 14 inches of her hair to Wigs for Kids, an organization that supports children who have lost their hair due to cancer treatments, she started being bullied at school, her mom told WHIO News in Dayton.

For what happened with the bullies from Jetta’s school go here. 

To show support for Jetta, “like” her anti-bullying page on Facebook.

One person, Duncan himself, has died from Ebola in the United States in these three weeks. In contrast, during an average three-week period in the United States: 35 people die from tuberculosis; 3,200 from influenza and pneumonia – 500 of those people under 65 years of age; 1,100 from suicide by gun; 650 from homicide by gun; 1,000 by alcoholic cirrhosis; and 1,900 by motor vehicle accident.* These deaths are not only vastly more numerous, they are much more contagious, either in a medical sense or in a sociological sense.

You don’t have only one soul-mate.

If you did,
you would have married your best friend
three years ago.
She knows you
better than her right hand,
and she’ll listen to you cry
from eight states away.

You don’t have only one soul-mate,
because people wake up different parts of you—
parts you never even knew existed.

The boy when you were 15
taught you what it felt like
to get caught kissing in a closet
at the party you never should have been at
in the first place,
without his lips ever touching yours.

When you were 18,
a boy let you know what it’s like
to have your heart lodged in your throat,
because he’s moving 2,000 miles away,
And he won’t tell you when he’ll be back.

You wait until you’re 22
to get attached again,
and this time you feel it in every inch.
It’s as if you got struck by lightning—
the Lichtenberg figure crawls
up your arms and across your back,
like his hands on your skin
while you laid in bed together,
and you thought the thump of your heart
was in time with his.

You don’t have only one soul-mate;
Instead, you have soul-mates,
because your heart is huge
and you have the room.

you fall in love easily but your heart still isn’t full ; s.m.   (via maikapuuwai)

#FergusonOctober

A mural was painted over Monday afternoon after Trenton police expressed concern that the painting, depicting Michael Brown, a Ferguson, Mo., teen who was fatally shot by police in August, sent the wrong message about community and police relations.

JORGE CORONA’S ‘FEATHERS’: A DARK AND BEAUTIFUL ADVENTURE ABOUT FRIENDSHIP COMING FROM ARCHAIA NEXT YEAR

By Chris Sims

Now that this whole vampire trend that’s been dominating media has finally started to cool down, it’s time for us to predict what’s going to be next. Werewolves have been done and mummies seem pretty unlikely, so if I had to guess, I’d say that the next big thing is going to be bird people. Just folks covered in feathers everywhere 2K15, you mark my words.

Or at least, that’s the impression that I’m getting from the announcement of Archaia’s newest comic, Jorge Corona’s Feathers, which launches in January with a six-issue miniseries. Corona will tell the story of a feather-covered boy named Poe who makes a friend for the first time in his life, and attempts to guide her home through a world of twisted back alleys and smoky chimneys, and it looks amazing.
