That water is so fucking clear…
type of place I wanna live
I’d be the idiot who forgets the water is there and falls off there porch everyday
I wouldnt even care, swimming with some koi fish sounds pretty rad.
My favourite thing about this, is that he goes back to his father, and holds him accountable for his actions. He’s thought he was in the wrong for years. That it was his fault he lost his honour. To see him come to this understanding that he was a child and his father was the responsible party was amazing.
I can’t even think of any other animated kids shows where the abuser is called out on their abuse as openly and directly as he was in this show. And don’t even start me on the importance of them showing that a male child can be the victim of abuse by a male parent. That’s a demographic that so often gets brushed aside and they get told to “man up” or in this case “act like a Prince”. And Zuko gets to stand up and say “I AM a Prince. You’re the one who was wrong”.
Sooo one of my mom’s colleagues and her kids went missing a few days ago, and like we didn’t know she was missing until we saw a missing notice posted on Facebook
… She’s not actually missing tho, she’s in hiding. From the exact same people who posted that missing notice, and who she definitely doesn’t want to be found by.
So a reminder to please please check this kind of thing before you share missing notices.
Ughhhh okay I work in a law enforcement field where we deal with a lot of missing persons and here’s why I don’t share things like this without a link to a LE press release or major national news outlet. IF IT DOES NOT HAVE A SOURCE, YOU COULD BE ENDANGERING SOMEONE’S LIFE.
LET ME REPEAT: IF IT DOES NOT HAVE A VERIFIABLE, LEGITIMATE SOURCE YOU COULD BE ENDANGERING SOMEONE’S FUCKING LIFE.
I know you think you are helping. I know you think a “signal boost” is the right thing to do. BUT PLEASE VERIFY BEFORE YOU SHARE.
Double goes for missing minors!!!!!!!!Predators and abusers put out things like this to get information on the whereabouts of their victims.
And don’t forget that just because a person is disabled doesn’t mean they aren’t being abused and trying to escape their abusers. In fact, disabled people are even more likely to be abused.
Very important addition.
Doing one great thing won’t make you a great person. Why did you do it? If you did it for your own ego or with other motives in mind, whether other people know about it or not, it makes your act not nearly as great. If you really are a good person, you probably aren’t out there bragging about the good things you’ve done. And you can’t just do the one thing and then try to justify repeatedly doing poor actions. Keep doing good things with others in mind, and keep doing them not because you get something out of it, but because it’s simply the right thing to do. And if you mess up, admit that you messed up, then pick yourself back up and try again. Never stop trying to be better than you are today.

vic stone knew friendzoning was bullshit like 20 years ago
[image description: Three Images. The first is a logo that reads “Morgan’s Wonderland: a special place for special friends.” The second image is a boy in a wheelchair, a girl with crutches, a girl with wings and a boy with a seeing eye dog. The third is headshots of the forementioned children with their names and brief explanations of their super powers. Which read as follows. “Rocket. He has a extreme rocket propelled super chair tha helps him zoom across anything at the speed of sound.” “Jette. She has jet propelled arm braces that help her blast hundreds of feet in the air at lightning speed.” “Morgan. She has big, beautiful wings that enable her to soar through the sky without fear or limitations.” “X-Ray. He has a super dog named Max and his eyewear enables him to see for miles in both X-ray and Night Vision. “]
Did you know that there’s an amusement park specifically designed around the needs of the disabled? Their mascots are a team of disabled superheroes, cut-outs of these four are scattered around the park showcasing them in various stages of their missions. The two pictures of the team came from this review. The ones she took are FAR better than the ones I was able to snap with my crappy phone camera.
As many of you know, my son is Autistic. No family outing can just happen spontaneously. We have to be as prepared as possible, and anyone who has ever been to a typical amusement park knows that chaotic is putting it nicely. Crowding, the overwhelming noise, and waiting in long lines? It’s not a pretty picture. Morgan’s family had the same kinds of issues.
That’s why they decided to do something about it.
Morgan’s Wonderland is a fully accessible park for disabled children and their families to come enjoy the day together without anyone having to sit out. The staff is fully trained and completely understanding when it comes to physical disabilities, intellectual disabilities, the works.
I posted some words about this place back when I took my son two summers ago, and we’ve been meaning to go back ever since and plan on doing it soon. I’m just surprised that I haven’t seen people talk about it on my dash at all in all that time.
Their mission statement: "To provide a safe, clean and beautiful environment free of economic barriers that all individuals, regardless of age, special need or disability, can come to and enjoy."
A one day pass for children 3-10, seniors over 62, and those with military ID is only $10, while general adult admission is just $15. Individuals with special needs are admitted free of charge.
Morgan’s Wonderland is located in San Antonio, TX. These guys are doing some really great things and I think more people need to know about this place.
