This is the Memorial to the Missing and contains over 50,000,000 pennies to represent the lives of each American child abandoned to abortion by a society and a culture that has embraced their destruction. We must prevent the need to add to this memorial. Take a stand. Get involved.

"should I use this $500k to help struggling parents and pregnant people or should I put it in a glass box"
I know a post I made a bit ago about Decolonizing Deadlifts may have seemed like a joke, but I was dead (eh? EH?) serious.
Having a forum where people can post exercises that aren’t on some do rep 365 lbs 30 times ish would be helpful to those that have been intimidated to approach weight lifting because of a socially constructed barrier to entry in a masculine dominated culture or because because of negative experiences.
Fitblr can be nice or whatever if you’re looking for photos of running shoes overlaid with quotes in papyrus font, I guess.
If anyone is into this idea, please lemme know, yeah?
Still here, but not for long. I’m gonna be riding my back-alley stallion into glory.

The city’s drop in crime has been nothing short of miraculous. Here’s what’s behind the unbelievable numbers.
With a hint of disgust, one retired veteran detective who reviewed the cases of Michelle Manalansan, Maurice Harris, Tiffany Jones, and Tiara Groves for Chicago called all four “counters.” That is, cases that he believes the police should have counted as homicides. “I’m not surprised that these cases have not come to light, based on who the victims are,” he says. “However, it is a travesty that the cases are not being investigated.” (While all cases are technically ongoing until they are closed, detectives say that death investigations are much lower priorities than homicide investigations.)…..In mid-December, McCarthy and Emanuel called a news conference to highlight the release of a report from a professor at Yale University. It had found that Chicago was on track to have its lowest homicide rate since 1967 and its lowest violent crime rate for nearly as long. “This is not just 2013 against 2012,” Emanuel told the Sun-Times. “This is 2013 against the last 40 years. That is what is significant.”Standing in front of a poster-size map showing the drops in overall crime in all of the city’s 22 police districts, the mayor and the superintendent then took questions.“Have you changed the way you measure statistics?” one reporter asked.“I don’t buy the premise of the question,” Emanuel answered and quickly moved on.
If you live in Chicago and consider it to be your community, you owe it to yourself to read this.
And for those that are unfamiliar with Chicago’s neighborhoods, many of the murders committed, that were then unclassified as homicides are in neighborhoods with a majority black/brown working class/lower income populations.
I once turned in an English paper that was written five hours before it was due. In these situations, grammar tends to fall by the wayside.
The professor knew I was born and raised in Chicago, met my US born mom, and English speaking immigrant dad, (I know - it’s weird that a professor met my parents, I acknowledge it and am moving on), but gave me a pass on the paper’s grammatical errors since English was - as she decided at some point in our year long academic relationship - my second language.
I said “very much thank you” and went on with my day.
Selections from ‘Rituals’, by Noorann Matties
Forced to examine ourselves in ways many normally avoid, Rituals as a project sought to capture the moment in which we our lives become devoid of distraction and we become intimately aware of ourselves. By photographing people’s personal beauty rituals I attempted to capture this awareness, this intimacy that occurs only when one is forced to examine their own body, the most basic thing that is theirs, and build upon it.
