Teaser: 

            “I must hhhave a chip for an-alysssis, we must-t re-move it from thhis one.” The Mrlssi began digging through a drawer of instruments.

            “You said you couldn’t safely remove it,” Rex said in a low voice.

            The Mrlssi straightened and stared into his eyes. “Thhis one must-t be sa-cri-ficed. I must hhhave a chip to hhelp you.”

            Rex stared at the floor, then looked at Echo. His face was still blank. Then Rex looked at the commandos.

            “Sir,” RC-7723 said. “We must not forget our original mission. We must destroy the computer virus. This is secondary.”

            “This isn’t secondary. Not anymore. I don’t think there is any way Echo can help you… even if they revive him now, he’ll just fall into this again when you reach the terminal. You can do this. I know you can… especially if the Mrlssi are willing to help.”

            “Captain, you were sent on this mission to lead us. You are abandoning your responsibilities by focusing on this instead of assisting us with the removal of the virus, especially now that ARC-Zero-Four-Zero-Eight is unable to lead. We still don’t know which terminal the virus is transmitting from.”

            The tension in Rex’s muscles was making it hard to remain calm. “I don’t know how to help you. I don’t! This mission is beyond my training. I’m not sure why Echo even asked me to be on it.” Rex shook his head. “I know you don’t understand and you’re just following orders, but there is no mission more important than destroying these chips. Now I order you to get on with the mission without me!”

            “You will not allow Echo to be revived at all?” Twenty-two sounded almost hurt, but Rex was not sure if he was only imagining it. It wasn’t hard, given how Rex was feeling.

            “That… would only make this harder.” Rex gritted his teeth. He didn’t want to think about what he had to do. The yellow Mrlssi was waiting for him to give the go ahead to euthanize Echo, a hypo lifted in its strange clawed hand.

Avalokiteśvara is a bodhisattva who embodies the compassion of all BuddhasOne prominent Buddhist story tells of Avalokiteśvara vowing never to rest until he had freed all sentient beings from samsara. Despite strenuous effort, he realizes that still many unhappy beings were yet to be saved. After struggling to comprehend the needs of so many, his head splits into eleven pieces. Amitabha Buddha, seeing his plight, gives him eleven heads with which to hear the cries of the suffering. Upon hearing these cries and comprehending them, Avalokiteśvara attempts to reach out to all those who needed aid, but found that his two arms shattered into pieces. Once more, Amitabha Buddha comes to his aid and invests him with a thousand arms with which to aid the suffering multitudes.

Avalokitesvara is known in Chinese Buddhist culture as Guan Yin (Kwanyin), and in Japanese as Kannon. They are presented in China and Japan as a woman. Forever my favorite of Buddhist figures because they’re essentially non-binary and trying to help everyone.

Ferguson’s public library welcomes students and teachers this week, while schools are still closed.

No one ever tells you that people will leave your life, unannounced. Sometimes they leave the earth, sometimes they just leave you. Things continue. Tomorrow you will wake up and the sun will be kissing your eyelids and it will be a new day for you to drink too much coffee and reread an old book. You will be okay. No one ever tells you that, either. Days will melt together like some candle you burned down to scraps, and seasons will change. You will fall in and out of love with yourself more times than you’ll ever be able to count. It is important to take the time to appreciate your own fingerprints, your own skin. There will be days when it is all you have.
Never forget to be kind to yourself.  (via withyourhalstondress)

People are giving Wilson money to thank him for killing an unarmed black teenager. Please report this to GoFundMe, as it violates their Terms of Service and they get 5% of the tens of thousands of dollars being donated. Click to report.

This is my message, in case you want to copy and paste:

Your Terms of Service prohibit “items that promote… hate, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime.” Take a look at the comments that come with the donations on this page and tell me that doesn’t violate your terms. “Support Officer Wilson” is a thin veil for people rewarding Wilson for killing a black kid.

Reporting this fuck out of this racist shit.

Done. It takes like a minute. Fuck this white asshole and his racists supporters. He shouldn’t profit 200k from killing a black child.

For cut-paste: the url is http://www.gofundme.com/supportofficerwilson.

This clearly violates you terms, as people are paying him for having committed a crime.
