These two were supposedly based on a real couple, who said they wouldn’t board a life boat as long as there were younger people still aboard the ship. They both went below deck, presumably to their room, and that’s the last time they were seen.

;________________;

Isador & Ida Straus
The couple had been married for 41 years at the time of the disaster. They raised six children together, and were almost inseparable. On the rare occasion that they were apart, they wrote each other every day. They even celebrated their birthdays on the same day, although they were well apart from one another. During the sinking, Titanic’s officers pleaded with the 63 year old Ida to board a lifeboat and escape the disaster, but she repeatedly refused to leave her husband. Instead, she placed her maid in a lifeboat, taking her fur coat off and handing it to the maid while saying, “I won’t need this anymore”. At one point, she was convinced to enter one of the last two lifeboats, but jumped out as her husband walked away to rejoin him.
When last seen by witnesses, they were standing on deck, holding each other in a tight embrace. Their funeral drew some 6,000 mourners at Carnegie Hall.
A monument to them still stands in a Bronx cemetery, it’s inscription reads: “Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it.”

why wasn’t the movie about them

    I am so angry. The welsh government and the council have decided to close my old school in 3 years. There’s been a campaign against it for the past 3 years.

    I just don’t understand why. It’s a high achieving school…

    And the schools they want to send pupils to instead mean either walking down a…

A few days ago in a parking lot in Lisbon wheelchair users and volunteers occupied all the available Non-Handicap spaces to make a point to able-bodied motorists what it is like to have “their” parking places unavailable to them.
On every wheelchair various notes were left like: "be right back", "it only takes a moment", "I’m get something here", etc.

Reblogged this yesterday from a different source, but I think this photograph is more powerful.

I love this so much I’ll reblog it a million times!

LOVE IT.  So sick of people defending their use of the handicap parking right to my cripple face.  I’d key their cars if there weren’t so many fucking CCTV cameras. 

love this, I do use my chair for when I am in malls, too sore to be on my feet for too long or just don’t feel like agitating my back, one thing I hate is wheeling from the far end of the parking lot and it freaks me out as many people don’t pay attention when backing out of parking stalls and when I see vehicles parked in disabled parking stalls, I will leave my truck parked right behind them and have pissed off many people, all I say is “well that will teach you and make you think twice about parking in these spots”, one guy had called a tow truck and he was screaming at the tow truck driver to tow my truck and just as I was wheeling up, the tow truck driver just laughed and said that he loved what I did and wasn’t moving my truck, the guy was raging when I got close to them and he started yelling at me and of course his racist redneck self showed his true colours and I dismantled my TiLite, got in my drivers seat, looked at him and said “you have a nice day as well” that shut his cocksucker up and the tow truck driver burst out laughing lol

Holy crap this is a great idea.
So simple, but so on point.
