'And I can lend you broken parts
That might fit like this
And I will give you all my heart
So we can start it all over again'









These two were supposedly based on a real couple, who said they wouldn’t board a life boat as long as there were younger people still aboard the ship. They both went below deck, presumably to their room, and that’s the last time they were seen.

;________________;

Isador & Ida Straus
The couple had been married for 41 years at the time of the disaster. They raised six children together, and were almost inseparable. On the rare occasion that they were apart, they wrote each other every day. They even celebrated their birthdays on the same day, although they were well apart from one another. During the sinking, Titanic’s officers pleaded with the 63 year old Ida to board a lifeboat and escape the disaster, but she repeatedly refused to leave her husband. Instead, she placed her maid in a lifeboat, taking her fur coat off and handing it to the maid while saying, “I won’t need this anymore”. At one point, she was convinced to enter one of the last two lifeboats, but jumped out as her husband walked away to rejoin him.
When last seen by witnesses, they were standing on deck, holding each other in a tight embrace. Their funeral drew some 6,000 mourners at Carnegie Hall.
A monument to them still stands in a Bronx cemetery, its inscription reads: “Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it.”

Popstars and their struggles

I feel like this is really important.

Also other celebrities,

Miley Cyrus - Bullied at school.

Mary J Blige - Raped and sexually abused, drug addiction, alcoholism, depression, abusive relationship

Azalea Banks - Abusive mother

Jim Carrey - Homeless at a young age

Oprah Winfrey - Sexually abused alcoholism, drug addiction

50 cent - Born to a 15 year old drug dealing mother who was murdered when he was 8, started drug dealing at 11, carried gun and drugs with him to school at 12, was later shot 9 times at close range.

Demi Moore - Born to an 18 year old alcoholic, bipolar mother, grew up seeing her mother and step-father abuse eachother. 

Christina Aguilera - She, her mother and sister were subject to her abusive father, bullied at school.

Friendly reminder: celebrities are people, not fucking objects for you to constantly judge.

And then there’s Justin Bieber.

"I don’t miss anything being vegan.
It’s not mine to miss.
I didn’t give up anything.
It wasn’t mine to give up.
I just stopped, and then, I gained.
Gained some self respect that I was no longer participating in, enabling and funding exploitation, use and murder of wonderful beings.
Because you truly can’t say you are against cruelty and murder while funding it. You can’t say you are an animal lover. Of ALL animals.
Not with a straight face and in truth you can’t.
I was a thief. A thief who stole precious things from the most vulnerable. I was party to murder.
I was a terrible person. I’m so very sorry from the bottom of my heart. I can’t undo all the pain and bad things I did. But I can try to atone by refusing to continue for one second longer. To live my life honestly. When you know better, you do better, otherwise things just stay the same. Please, take a minute today to truly look at yourself and ask why you would continue living like this when we can live without it. I will help you if you need it. Please. I beg you. Just stop. The ability to do so is in us all. It’s never too late." —- Nik Anti-Speciesist (via fighting-for-animals)

what i never 
learned 
from my mother
was that
just because someone desires you
does 
not mean they value you.
desire is the kind of thing that
eats you
and
leaves you starving.
