If I'm killed for speaking the truth, I can live with that. I've already lived twice what I expected and I ache from that prediction. I am not battle-ready, but my mouth and brain work very well. It is better to die for God and America than suffer in world fascism. I pray America wakes up, time is short and we are the front line to inform.

Let’s talk about what’s happening in Australia, which is suffering its worst bushfire season in recorded history.
Tumblr media
This almost unimaginable catastrophe has killed half a billion animals with more than 14.5 million acres burned and released over 250 million tonnes of CO2 so far.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
More than 5 million hectares have been burnt, and this number continues to climb – that’s the equivalent of one fifth of the entire UK // equivalent to twice size of Belgium.
Tumblr media
Half a billion mammals, birds and reptiles have been affected, including an estimated 30% of the entire koala population in this area.
Lives and homes have been lost. Our thoughts are with the tens of thousands of people who are affected by these fires.
Tumblr media
We HAVE to help... we have to do something before it’s too late. Pray For Australia 🐨and

If you're reading this, please I BEG YOU TO REBLOG! my country Honduras was completely destroyed by hurricane eta. The night of November 5 the Sula valley was severely flooded by the overflows of various rivers, there are approximately 4 cities completely underwater and numerous small villages i can't even count. Even the airport of my city San Pedro Sula is underwater. Aproximately 300,000 families lost everything they had, there are hundreds of people going missing, our social medias are flooded with posts of people desperately searching for their family members since communication has been lost due to the floods and lanslides on roads. And almost 200 people have been found dead including drowned kids. Our indigenous people have lost all of their crops they live of. They have nothing left and up to this day there's still people trapped in the roofs of their homes waiting to be rescued. The government has abandoned us ever since covid came into our country. And literally we have no one, it's only us helping each other with what we have. Hundreds of hondurans have shown their golden heart by providing shelter to those who have nowhere to go and lost everything, you have no idea how much i've cried seeing how with the little we have, we've tried to help the most. This is a third world contry, victims of a narco state and a corrupted government, we have gone through so much, fought for too long for the justice we have never gotten. So please, spread awareness, i beg you to do so.
My dear friend Natalia @zeldatrickers is fundraising, shes buying essentials to donate to shelters, if you can, please consider donating through PayPal. Also, here's a twt link with a thread of links to donate.

The thing that pisses me off the most about this Florida school shooting is that this kid’s instagram IS LITERALLY HIM SHOWING OFF HIS BIG ASS GUNS.
AND NO ONE SAID ANYTHING. NO ONE REPORTED IT AND SHOWED ZERO CONCERN OR QUESTIONED LIKE “hey, it’s kind of odd that my former classmate is showing off his guns on social media, maybe I should tell his parents or alert the principal because he looks pretty pissed off”.
We are so unbelievably desensitized to guns and it’s horrible. I hate when a tragedy happens and it’s not until people fucking die when people give a shit about regulating guns (specifically gigantic fucking guns that aren’t fucking legal).
I hate that all policians say is “thoughts and prayers” how about you shut the fuck up and work on finding a solution? stop sitting there in your stupid ass leather chair at your fancy desk talking out of your tiny uptight ass about “prayers”, save your stupid speech, save it all and get the fuck down to whoever you need to talk to about fixing this shit.
If I ever have kids one day, I’m not about to send my kids to school if solutions aren’t going to be offered up. I’ll homeschool them, I don’t give a fuck.
I’m mad. I’m mad and I’m glad people are mad, STAY THE FUCK MAD. Hopefully this can light a fire under our asses to fix this fucking country.
Edit: yes I know about the report to the FBI but they didn’t do much so bye, next
no, his behavior on social media wasn’t “normal” he posted a picture of a bloody dead frog on his Instagram feed, that’s not just some kid showing off guns, that’s animal cruelty and who posts that kind of thing? first rule of psychopathy is killing animals, bye NEXT

THIS IS NOT AN OUTAGE THIS WAS PLANNED. THIS IS NOT A FAILING THIS WAS INTENTIONAL.
The American government never heed the warnings. The American government is never prepared. From Hurricane Katrina to Covid to this current situation - its America is always scrambling after a disaster has struck.
However, the American government is always prepared for war. The American government is always available to destabilize another country. They are always on time to sic overmilitarized forces on protestors & suppress asylum seekers, the poor & those who seek to challenge the state.

Throwing Texans in jail whose biz's shut down through no fault of their own is wrong.
I am eliminating jail for violating an order, retroactive to April 2, superseding local orders.
Criminals shouldn’t be released to prevent COVID-19 just to put business owners in their place.

The Mantis Man is a large humanoid praying mantis found in Hackettstown New Jersey. The Mantis Man is said to be a humanoid praying mantis that is dark green or brown in color and is also translucent. The Mantis Man has been seen standing in ponds trying to catch fish which is odd since praying mantises normally don’t like water. Whenever someone gets too close the Mantis Man runs off showing that it is scared of people. Some people believe that the Mantis Man could be an escaped experiment or an alien.

Morning prayer
Lord evil people tried to take our country away from us,to make our votes meaningless, to take away our rights, and in the process hurt good people and let the guilty walk free.
Give them no place to hide Lord, cut this cancer away, every root, every cell.

what to do/remember during a school shooting
I know how dramatic it sounds to even have a post about this, but it’s something that I think about quite often. I’m a senior in high school and I attend a… well, country school. It’s quite small. My school has a violent atmosphere, to put it simply. Every time there is a mass shooting, teachers in every one of my classes make sure to explain just what would happen in my school, just in case one of the violent kids decide to do something big. So, because of my terrible anxiety and amazing ability to overthink, I gather the information my teachers tell me and I also go out of my way to try and understand just what I can do in that unthinkable situation… mostly the latter. What your teachers tell you really depends on your school and the area around it.
Before I start listing things, remember that the moment you hear a gunshot, or become alerted about a threat on campus, before you call your mother, or your uncle or sister, call 911. They need to be the first to know about the threat so they can begin to try and neutralize it immediately. Give information about the school, don’t throw out anything that you don’t know 100% and ask them what you should do or tell them your plan if it has already escalated where you have to make your decisions.
1. Make sure the shoes that you are wearing never interfere with how you are able to run. If you’re in a position where you need to get out of there fast, you don’t want to fall prey to your shoes. I know that may sound a little much, and sometimes I think that too, until I remember how much of a warzone it can be from what we’ve seen on social media and in the news. Be prepared to run, because your adrenaline will kick in and you don’t want to hold it back. Also, if you are running, run in a zig zag. It makes you a harder target if you are constantly moving against the path.
2. If you see anything online/hear anything towards your school that is threatening your safety with fire arms, first call the police. Then, call the school. If you aren’t sure what is going on, don’t come to school the next day. Trust your gut- something really could be going on.
3. It may sound a little redundant, but remember where every single exit is. If you are ever in a situation where your security is your own responsibility (i.e. you aren’t with a teacher or another person of authority) then remember where you can get yourself to safety if need be. Also, a bathroom is not an exit or a means to safety- there is no windows and little (if anything???) you could use as a weapon.
4. TRUST YOUR SENSES- and use them to your advantage. Use what you can see and hear. Seeing more than hearing- visual confirmation is important because of the total chaos that could be going on around you. Your eyes do not lie, especially when your fight or flight instincts have kicked in. Hearing can be tricky, especially if it comes with a “he said” and a “she said.” As previously mentioned, seeing is believing in this instance, so trust what you hear with a grain of salt. However, if you hear a gun shot, or you hear pounding feet, trust yourself and remain collected and quiet.
5. Speaking of visuals, don’t go out of your way to get them; help is surely on the way. Stay where you are and do not move around. It only makes you and everybody around your vulnerable. Just like talking: silence is key. As stated, when you trust your senses, the shooter is also trusting his- if a shooter is passing by and hears nothing, chances are they will continue on and you can remain in your hiding space, safe.
6. When hiding, don’t just trust that a shooter won’t just hear nothing and keep moving, though. Take cover. Find something to make wherever you are appear empty. An overturned desk, a teachers desk, a bookshelf. However, your first thought should never be to hide: it should always be escape. If you see an exit and you know where it leads and how to get out of your possible gun situation, take it. (#3) Concrete is always first choice in hiding behind, but it isn’t always available. Also, if you are hidden, crouch. Stay out of the windows unless it is your means to safety, and stay on your hands and knees. This could protect your organs from richoeting bullets, though your hands, knees or wrists could be hit. This is better than the alternative- a lung, for instance.
7. Mentioning that, remember that those things (desks, bookshelves, etc) are good for more than just shielding your body. You can push heavier, sturdier things in front of the door. Make it as hard as possible to access the area you are in. LOCK. THE. DOOR. And not just with a key, because that isn’t always possible (and you never know if the shooter has a master key!) Never make it very obvious, though, in case a shooter begins to realize that there are potential victims locked in a room. However, the real thing to consider is time. What can get you to safety as soon as possible? That is different with possibly every school, depending on where you are.
8. If you have to break a window, like I mentioned briefly above, and you are without an object to do so, remember to always ALWAYS ALWAYS cover your fist with a jacket, or a shirt. You don’t want to self inflict injuries unless absolutely necessary because it can either be a distraction, or the blood from your fist can act as a way to track you if it drips. Be mindful.
9. No matter how much you like your backpack or what is inside of it, drop it the second you know there’s a situation. Nothing inside of it is worth you and it will only drag you down if you have to run. When rescued, you will either have it taken away or asked to leave it behind by law enforcement anyways, just to make sure you are also not a threat to the situation or aiding the situation. Seconds are gold in this type of situation.
10. Speaking of rescuing, keep your hands high so officers know you are not a threat to the campus. If you want to record (which is a personal choice) or just keep your phone on you, either put your phone in your pocket, or somewhere else that is not your hands. I reccomend a jacket with zippers- I have one, and I keep my phone zipped up so I don’t have to worry about it falling out.
11. If the unthinkable on top of the unthinkable has happened, and you are around a dead body, and you are also about to reach the same fate– cover yourself in blood. Play dead.
12. IF you have your phone, make sure it is dead silent. The second news breaks about what is going on, it is human nature to want to communicate. If you have a loved one calling you, send them to voicemail unless you are 110% sure nobody that wants to harm you can hear you. But, truthfully, you can never really be 110% sure in this type of situation.
13. Earlier I mentioned fight or flight- if you are in the position that you have to fight for your survival, everything is a weapon. Look for scissors, staplers, holepunchers, glass, anything that can be used to either knock the shooter out, or seriously throw him off course. A pen can even act as a weapon- make sure your thumb is supporting the back of it so you can really do some damage with it. When fighting, even though you (or maybe just me) thinks to go for the sensitive areas, like a mans balls, instead focus on getting the gun out of their hands- stab their wrists, their arms, or if you can knock them unconcious, hit the top of their head. A fire extinguisher would be effective in this instance.
14. Try. To stay. With. A group. This makes #13 much easier- fighting one on one with someone in a situation where they have the upper hand is hard and nearly impossible to win. When you have numerous people with you, it can be easier to overpower the shooter. I also reccommend learning how to defend yourself- not just for a school shooter situation. It can help your body stay fit and healthy, and it keeps you prepared in case you are in a situation you need out of- whether it’s sexual assault or in this case, a gun situation.
I never want to come off as dramatic, but the school shooting in Florida this past Valentines day has made me incredibly stressed. It seems as if every day in America we are hearing about a school shooting. This really could happen anywhere and the only person that can save you in this type of situation is yourself. This list isn’t very extensive, but it is very basic. If you are looking for more, educate yourself. United Locksmith is where I got the majority of this, but there are several other articles out there that hold information you may find better suits what you can do or handle. If anybody has more to add, please feel free.

Dear America,
17 American citizens were killed in one of your schools today. 29 students have been killed in one of your schools since 2018 began. And there have been 11 school shootings in the 43 days of this year. School, an institution that at its core, is a place built for shaping our youth. How do you think the lives of the students and teachers of the 11 schools are going to be shaped by this trauma? Their families and friends lives? 17 families are grieving the loss of their child and no one in that school will ever be the same after today. America, I am heartbroken for you tonight and I am grieving for the hundreds of families across this country that are senselessly affected by gun violence.

A Prayer for America by Dave Butts Father of all that is, I bow before You acknowledging You as creator and king over all. As I come to pray for my country, I realize that the prophet Isaiah told us that “the nations are like a drop in a bucket; they are regarded as dust on the scales” (Isaiah 40:15). No great empire or humble province lasts forever. Yet Your will brings nations into being and uses them as instruments for Your purposes. The Apostle Paul told us, “From one man he (God) made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact place where they should live.” (Acts 17:26). I thank You for calling into being the United States of America. I am grateful for the godly foundation laid by men and women of faith who built into the very fabric of our country a commitment to freedom that was seen as being a gift from You. Thank You for the sacrifice of so many through the years who gave time, effort, and sometimes, their very lives to preserve and protect that freedom. With no lessening of my appreciation for this nation, I also realize that we have fallen short of our promise. We have increasingly depended upon our own strength and wisdom rather than that which comes from above. We have often catered to the wealthy and ignored the needs of the poor and afflicted. We have failed to accept all life as a gift from You and have treated the unborn, the ill, and the elderly with increasing contempt. In spite of our stated values of equality and justice, we continue to harbor racism and injustice within our society. Most of all, we have turned our back on You and sought to live as though You were not. We face troubling times. Our economy has been damaged and many of our citizens are hurting. Our nation is fractured and badly divided in so many ways. The issues faced by our leaders are enormous. Grant them Your grace and peace. Fill them with Your Holy Spirit and give them wisdom and discernment in this critical hour. Lord…we repent! Please pour out upon our nation a spirit of repentance. Help us to turn from sin and turn back to You. As we seek Your face, would You revive Your people once again? Would you empower Your church in this nation to be the salt and light You have called us to be? Would You help us to love You with all of our mind, heart and soul and strength, and to love one another deeply with kindness and goodness? Make us one, Lord, as You and the Father are one. Holy Spirit, teach us how to honor and respect one another and to journey together with one heart – the heart of Jesus. Transform us into image bearers of Christ who bring glory and honor to our Father whenever we speak or act. Father, in these days of decision, fulfill Your purposes for our nation. I stand in prayer with my brothers and sisters in Christ and re-commit the United States into Your care. Restore to us the vision of being a city on a hill, a place from which the light of Christ can shine to the nations. May we be a nation whose God is the Lord!
