Faith In Humanity Restored. Fuckers. First off you are a complete asshole for hitting a dog and then driving off. Second why are you taking pictures go help him. Lastly the kid was smart he knew more people would pay attention and be pissed off if he was hit and the car drove off so he could better protect the dog.

The men who raised the second flag over Iwo Jima. Iconic photo taken on February 23, 1945, by Joe Rosenthal. It depicts five United States Marines and a U.S. Navy corpsman raising the flag of the United States atop Mount Suribachi during the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II.
Joe Rosenthal's Pulitzer Prize winning AP photo of the Feb. 23, 1945 flag raising on Mt. Suribachi, Iwo Jima, was originally misidentified by military sources. Originally identified, from left, in graphic: Pfc. Franklin R. Sousley; Pfc. Ira Hayes; Sgt. Michael Strank; Pharmacist's Mate 2nd Class John H. Bradley; Pfc. Rene A. Gagnon; Sgt. Henry O. Hansen. The Marine at far right was later correctly identified as Cpl. Harlon Block, not Hansen. (/Joe Rosenthal) #History #WWII History and WWII

He walked the railing, looking out over the city. His city. She could have the place. What did he care. His brother had that boat out on the bay, and he had his health. The butler opened the glass door to the balcony. “Can I get you anything this evening, sir?” he said. “Get me the lights, Manfred,” he said. “The city lights.”

This dad is about to be deployed and is having to say goodbye to his newborn baby girl. Sacrifices like this are made every day and may we be reminded, that our freedom comes with a cost, and our soldiers and their families are paying it. Thank you to all our American Soldiers.

Ruby Bridges, the first African-American child to attend an all-white elementary school in the American South, escorted by U.S. Marshals dispatched by President Eisenhower for her safety, 14 November, 1960; Learn your black history.
"Don't be afraid", Ruby Bridges's mother told her on November 4, 1960. Soon, four United States federal court marshals arrived at the Bridges family home in New Orleans, to drive the first grader to William Frantz Public School. Ruby held her head high. With the marshals surrounding her, the 6-year-old walked into the school and became one of the first African Americans to attend an all-white elementary school in the South. #WomenRock
"Don't be afraid." That's what Ruby Bridges' mother told her on November 4, 1960. Little Ruby listened carefully to the advice. Soon, 4 US federal court marshals/officers arrived at the Bridges family home in New Orleans to drive the 1st grader to William Frantz PS. A screaming mob was waiting. People stood near the building shouting. Ruby held her head high. With the marshals surrounding her, the 6-year-old became the first black child to walk walked into the all-white elementary school.

Happy Independence Day, and thank you to all who served. May God bless America and those who fought to keep her free.
What does it mean to you personally to enjoy so many freedoms unequalled anywhere else in the world today? As for me, I will forever be grateful for LIFE, LIBERTY, and the blessings of HAPPINESS in pursuing the American dream, and for the preservation of these gifts at any price... “with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence.” To this end, may we all—individually, as families, and as a nation—“mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.”
