"There are 41 wars being fought around the world right now. Most of us are busy and we race through our weeks without paying a great deal of attention, but yesterday this week stopped, because one of those wars reached into the sky and grabbed 298 people who could have been any of us."

— CBS’ Scott Pelley, commenting on our shared humanity, after the missile attack of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 (source)

when u watch ur favorite character getting heartbroken and u can feel ur own heart part like moses parted the sea

"

They say in a collision
that there are three
areas of impact:

First, the vehicle
with the object,
followed by your
body with the
vehicle, and,
finally,
your internal organs
with your body.

And every time
I heard this,
I always thought
that I was too
smart for that,
that I knew better
than that,
that I would always
be careful,
that I would always
look out for
myself.

But now,
it makes sense,
how a heart
can smash
so quickly,

when we went
from 100
to 0 just
like
that.

Arturo is a 29-year-old male polar bear currently living in Argentina’s Mendoza Zoo. He is suffering in 40C (104F) heat in an enclosure that has just 20 inches of water for him to swim in and has as a consequence been displaying worrying behavior.

Please sign this petition or at least spread the word in order to have Arturo transferred to a zoo in Canada which has better facilities for an animal that is used to polar conditions.
