Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.
Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.
This scene is SO important. Maleficent is with someone she trusts, someone she considers a friend. And then the next thing she knows, she wakes up in pain, bleeding, with her wings burned off. A huge part of her has been destroyed.
Rape is so prominent in our culture that it is in a Disney movie. Maybe not explicitly, but it is very clear what this scene represents and it is so sad.
Normally I hate adding comments to posts but considering Angelina Jolie is very involved in women’s rights and works overseas to bring awareness to sexual assault/rape/etc, I’m betting she did this intentionally to highlight it. I think she had a lot of control over this movie.
He didn’t just take her wings either, he DRUGGED her first. It was very clear and terrifying. I also enjoyed this movie because instead of being about a girl who finds love with a boy it was about a woman who finds her way back to herself after going through such a terrible betrayal by loving a little girl and fighting tooth and nail to protect her. “True loves kiss” wasn’t about a prince coming to Aurora’s rescue, it was about THIS woman coming to her rescue. Women looking out for women (or in this case, woman looking out for young innocent girl) needs to happen more in Disney movies.
Here’s the thing about being pro choice that people don’t get… You don’t have to morally agree with abortion to be pro choice. That’s why it’s not called pro abortion. It’s an understanding that you can’t make that choice for someone else and they have full control over that not you. It’s pro I’m not the boss of everyone else.
Every night, you think about how you could of been a better dad, a better husband, that bedtime story you should of read, or that anniversary you forgot. You don’t expect your family to understand what you’re doing. You just hope they understand you’re doing it for them, and when you get home you hope you can pick up right where you left off.
Infused in the white bead is water from Mount Everest, the highest point on earth. In the black bead, mud from the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth. Separating the two beads are clear beads, representative of the story we all have to tell. Life moves through cycles, find your balance.

This is mine and my fiance’s dog Charlie. She is a pit mix approximately 3 years old. She was in the gated yard about an hour ago and we went to feed her and now we can’t find her. We don’t know how this happened since there is no place for her to get out, and no evidence of her breaking the gate or anything
If you see her please let us now ASAP
she has an abusive past so she can get really excited sometimes and unsure of herself and she can bark but she has never showed any aggression towards anyone. She has gotten along with every dog she’s met. She is such a sweet girl and I’d hate to lose her.
