Thanks to all the women in America's past who were beaten, jailed and fined so that I have the right and freedom to cast my vote as I see fit.
The Salem Witch Trials of 1692-1693 were by far the largest and most lethal outbreak of witchcraft hysteria in American history. Yet Salem was just one of many incidents during the Great Age of Witch Hunts which took place throughout Europe and her colonies over many centuries. Indeed, by European standards, Salem was not even a large outbreak. But what exactly were the factors that made Salem stand out?

A French creative going by the name of Blick has created a series of inspiring collages that juxtapose black and white photos of men at war with vivid #flower drawings and cartoonish details. In the series, the soldiers’ guns have been replaced with flowers, making them look friendly and harmless. They now bring peace instead of war, shooting petals instead of bullets
The photo depicts six American soldiers raising the American flag on Mount Suribachi on February 23. 1945. The island was stratigically important for the Americans in their war against Japan, and the battle continued for several weeks until it finally fell to the Americans. On March 26th Iwo Jima was declared "secure."
This is the famous photo of the flag being raised at Iwo Jima. The date was February 23, 1945. The six men planting the flag in the photo were Mike Strank from Pennsylvania, Harlon Block from Texas, Franklin Sousley from Kentucky, John Bradley from Wisconsin, Rene Gagnon from New Hampshire and Ira Hayes from Arizona. Strank, Harlon, and Sousley died in combat. #Franklin Sousley
