Little Thoughts

This is where the truth comes out. I'm going to be honest. I'm going to be frank. I'm a dreamer with the a passion for kittens and puppies but more importantly social topics and nail designs. Come for what you might learn, stay for a good laugh.

six year old anita and twelve year old sonia, sisters, were both born blind to parents who, as field labourers making less than a dollar a day, were unable to afford the 300 dollar, fifteen minute operation that would restore their sight. 

for such children, blindness is often a death sentence. unable to read or find work, most leave their villages to spend their lives homeless, asking for money in the streets (much like with this photo). 

but with the help of 20/20/20, a non profit which seeks to provide the surgery for the approximately twenty million in need, sonia and anita were successfully treated, with their defective opaque lenses replaced with functional artificial ones. 

said anita’s mother, “when they removed the bandages, she kept saying ‘mother, i can see! i can see!’” as 20/20/20 explains, “it is an amazing experience to watch a child open their eyes and see for the first time. some gasp, some cry. some are too stunned to do anything except look around them and take it all in.”

you can watch a short, but impactful, documentary on anita and sonia, which includes the touching footage of the sisters seeing for the first time. photos from a larger series by brent stirton. click picture for more on their story from said doc. (see also: india’s dalits)

This isn’t supposed to happen to people like me, I’m a good person.

This show was, and continues to be, so important.

"

Three years later, a new girl sits cross-legged on your bed.
She tastes like a different flavor of bubblegum than you are used to.
She opens up a book that you had to read in high school, and a folded picture of us falls out of chapter three.
Now there are two unfinished stories resting in her lap.
Inevitably, she asks, and you tell her.

You say: I dated her a while back.
You don’t say: Sometimes, when I’m holding you, I imagine the smell of her vanilla perfume.

You say: She was younger than me.
You don’t say: The sixteen summers in her bones warmed the eighteen winters my skin had weathered.

You say: It’s nothing now.
You don’t say: But it was everything then.

yeah a boyfriend sounds nice but a supreme enemy you can make out with sometimes in secret sounds a lot more hardcore

If I Stay by Gayle Forman
Exceeds the hype. I don’t know why I waited so long to read If I Stay. There’s nothing new I can say about it, since it’s 5 years old and obviously a very well loved book.
I have this terrible habit of not reading popular books unless I perceive reading them as culturally imperative (Harry Potter, TFiOS, etc). It’s possible that sometime in the last couple years I consciously choose not to read If I Stay simply because all my friends were reading it. Opposing popularity has helped me find some great books, like 4 to 16 Characters. But it’s also suuuuper ridiculous, because I miss out on dozens of fantastic books. I could have read If I Stay five years ago! 
I am so glad I finally picked it up and cannot wait to read the sequel.

Same! Same, so bad it hurts!! I need to cut this crap out. Right D?
