“I would love to direct. I do it in my head when I’m watching other directors direct. […] The mistake I see even the really good directors make is they assume they are the only creative person on the set. Actually, make-up artists are not just girls with brushes who put foundation on, and costume guys are not just there to stitch up accidents. They are all immensely creative people.”
Oh, that doesn’t do them justice by a long road.
I don’t want to be the black sheep any more I want my mother and father to love me like the other kids I want to feel the beauty in my fake smile that every one says is so pretty I don’t want to be alone any more I want someone to be afraid of loosing me I want the depression I have been battling for so long to leave me alone I want someone anyone to love me

TV show meme ➔ [4/5 female characters] Kaywinnet Lee Frye (Firefly)
I don’t believe there is a power in the ‘verse that can stop Kaylee from being cheerful. Sometimes you just want to duct tape her mouth and dump her in the hold for a month.
#I adore Kaylee so much #because her character is just so rare#someone whose soul is just so pure and sweet and good#but free of the assumptions that come with that #she is sexual #she is competent#she does crime #and none of those take anything away from her inherent innocence#she looks at the universe #and even though she has seen so much strife and pain#she still focuses on the beauty and the goodness #and I love that about her (via jaxin88)
Justice for Kendrick Johnson at The March on Washington 50th Anniversary - August 28th, 2013
Kendrick Johnson was a 17-year-old student at Lowndes County High School in Valdosta, Georgia, where he was last seen in his fourth-period class on the afternoon of Thursday, January 10, 2013. After that, he never showed up to any of his other classes.
And he wasn’t on the school bus home, as he always was at the end of the day.
Worried like any parents would be, Kenneth and Jackie Johnson reported him missing to the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Department. Both in their mid-forties, Kenneth is a truck driver and Jackie, a school bus driver. They spent a long night wondering if their child would come home safely.
Lowndes County High School is a complex of low lying buildings, built in a horseshoe shape around a large parking lot. The old school gym is a small building, sandwiched between two larger ones. There are surveillance cameras outside and inside the gym, where a student visited early the next morning following Kendrick’s disappearance.
Wrestling mats were rolled up and standing vertically, as they usually were, in the back of the gym. Horsing around, the student noticed that one mat was different from the others. Someone’s bare feet were sticking out of the top of one of the mats. Was this some sort of practical joke? But it wasn’t Halloween, so what was going on?
The student quickly left and called a teacher. When adults came to the gym and unrolled the mat, inside was the body of a male African American. It was impossible to identify him by sight; his face had been beaten beyond recognition. Paramedics were summoned.
The Lowndes County Sheriff’s Department arrived after, though the exact time which they showed up is unclear. Searching the body, police found a wallet in the pocket of his gym shorts. Opening it, the identification said, “Kendrick Johnson.” Inexplicably, County Coroner Bill Watson was not summoned until 3:45 PM, approximately five hours and forty five minutes later.
When Watson got there, it was chaos. The entire scene around the body was trampled by everyone from curious coaches and teachers, to the cops themselves. To say the crime scene was contaminated is putting it mildly. Little evidence was gathered; no one was questioned; and no crime scene photos were taken. The body was eventually carted off to the Harrington Funeral Home, where an interested worker did snap the only photo extant of Kendrick’s face in death.
this fails to mention that Kendrick’s brain, heart, liver, and lungs were missing from his body—replaced by newspaper.
we speak and remember his name.
i read the sheriff’s son had something to do with it
