…and it’s true too.

I just always reblog this story too. Because it’s awesome. And because obviously Boggs is the kind of person that should be well known, and become a role model. (And Chris Garcia, Boggs’s friend who rode as well!) 
Also, I wanted to note that there’s a scholarship fund for the two boys set up. You can donate here!: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/reward-the-heroes-scholarship-fund-temar-boggs-and-chris-garcia

Reblogging for scholarship information

The scholarship fund is currently at $15k, but we know that even now that’s a pittance compared to the actual cost of higher ed. And it doesn’t look like costs are going to be coming down, unfortunately.
Please donate if you can, and signal boost the heck outta this.

Always reblog because someday I hope the first thing I think when we see a photo of a young black man is something like this, not “criminal” or “murdered by police.”
Also Tumblr, if we can raise money for people’s medical bills and sick cats and so on, surely we can send these two young men to college?

True heros.

I was wondering if you could explain what it feel like when a person with ADHD is interrupted from their routine

actuallyadhd:

Well, I can really only speak for myself, but here’s how it goes for me.

I’m working away, “in the zone” and on task, and then something happens to throw me way off. Initially I may not fully register it.

But then I start to feel really agitated and anxious, like something is really really wrong and I don’t know what to do next or what’s going to happen next, and I get really irritable.

If it’s bad enough I might have an anxiety attack or a meltdown, but usually I don’t get that far. If I have my to-do list handy, I keep myself calm by going over it and I change my plans based on what I can still do with this new thing having happened. Once I know what’s going to happen next, I feel much better and it’s easier to deal with the change in routine.

-J

For me, if someone interrupts me by talking, I may continue on without really even registering that they are there. And even when I do, my mind keeps wanting to ignore them and go back to what it was doing….especially if what they are saying is not very interesting or if they are taking a long time to say it. And yea, I do start to get irritable when that happens.

I try not to be rude, but that is what it feels like inside my head. 

There’s over 9 million users on Tumblr now. Reblog if you’re one of the few who’s never EVER left anon hate in somebody’s ask box.

NEVER HAVE NEVER WILL

I don’t understand why anyone would send hate, anonymously or not…

Lunar Eclipse - April 14, 2014

Watching this tonight was so neat! I didn’t have my tripod and was on painkillers so they aren’t the best photos.

Wow if that was without a tripod you must have a steady hand.

If you’re inside on Tumblr instead of outside watching the lunar eclipse, we feel obliged to notify you that, thanks to NASA and the Internet, you can see the view from the Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama without leaving your computer.
Here, science reporter Deborah Netburn explains just what a “blood moon” is, exactly. We’ll be filling up this photo gallery as the night goes on. And if you’d like to see a bigger version of the infographic up top, you’ll find it on our science blog.

Pretty little wildflower I saw at Bernheim Forest yesterday.

Urgent security update

staff:

Bad news. A major vulnerability, known as “Heartbleed,” has been disclosed for the technology that powers encryption across the majority of the internet. That includes Tumblr.

We have no evidence of any breach and, like most networks, our team took immediate action to fix the issue.

But this…

Early Spring wildflowers (and some ferns and fungi) in Bernheim Forest.
