In San Francisco last year, a man stabbed a woman in the face and arm after she didn’t respond positively to his sexually harassing her on the street.

In Bradenton, Fla., a man shot a high school senior to death after she and her friends refused to perform oral sex at his request.

In Chicago, a scared 15-year-old was hit by a car and died after she tried escaping from harassers on a bus.

Again, in Chicago, a man grabbed a 19-year-old walking on a public thoroughfare, pulled her onto a gangway and assaulted her.

In Savannah, Georgia, a woman was walking alone at night and three men approached her. She ignored them, but they pushed her to the ground and sexually assaulted her.

In Manhattan, a 29-year-old pregnant woman was killed when men catcalling from a van drove onto the sidewalk and hit her and her friend.

Last week, a runner in California — a woman — was stopped and asked, by a strange man in a car, if she wanted a ride. When she declined he ran her over twice.

FUCK YOU if you think that street harassment is a “compliment” or “no big deal” or that it’s “irrational” of us to be afraid because “what’s actually gonna happen.” Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you some more.

When I’m really into a novel, I’m seeing the world differently during that time— not just for the hour or so in the day when I get to read. I’m actually walking around in a haze, spellbound by the book and looking at everything through a different prism. By Colin Firth (via duttonbooks)

I believe in spring flowers
on the kitchen table.

I believe the moon knows all
the world’s secrets,
and if you listen,
she’ll whisper to you in your sleep.

I believe cardinals were
sent to keep color alive
during winter.

I believe ghosts are
the physical manifestation
of hope.

I believe gardens
are the very same thing.

I believe there are 56 days in February,
but every calendar is missing a page.

I believe mountains
are the keeper of silence.

I believe there are
9,837 different kinds of love,
each one a leaf
on the deciduous tree of life.

I believe music is the wind,
whispering through those leaves.

I believe in messes,
beautiful, beautiful messes.

I believe snowflakes
are the only form of perfection.

I believe light makes us grow,
but darkness keeps us sane.

I believe forests
remember every person
they’ve ever encountered.

I believe words are the oldest religion.

I believe north is the strongest direction.

I believe we are all in this together,
most especially those who stand alone.

I believe birds were the world’s first poets.

I believe in spring.

I talked to Susy on the phone yesterday for maybe half an hour and it dawned on me that no one can ever replace my best friend. Ever. She’s number one and really the only person I can tell absolutely anything to. She doesn’t give me that sickly feeling when I get too close to someone. She’s the bomb.

I just want someone who won’t get annoyed when I text them six times or in all caps. Someone I can go on long drives with and can sing along to the radio with. Someone I can eat pizza with at 2am and kiss at 6pm. Someone who chooses me everyday and never thinks twice about it. By (via jessielou24)
