Being a huge fan of film for most of my life, it is no surprise that I have seen MOST of Robin Williams’ works. He never failed to make me laugh when he’d conduct interviews on talk shows and have the ability to make me cry in dramatic roles.
There’s so much I would like to write about him, but I just don’t have the ability to put it into words that could truly encompass my immense respect for his talent and the sadness his loss has incurred across the globe.
"O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills,
For you bouquets and ribbon’d wreaths—for you the shores a-crowding,
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning”
Thank you for sharing your talent with us for so many years.
March 26, 1993. A pleasant spring day in Seguin, Texas. But for one woman, it quickly became a nightmare.
A Kirby Vacuum salesman came to her door to offer an in-home demonstration. And while her children slept in the very next room the salesman brutally raped the young mother.
The salesman was a sexual predator on probation… …but the Kirby vacuum cleaner distributor had failed to perform a routine background check on him.
The woman and her husband went all the way to the Texas Supreme Court. Fighting for their right to sue Kirby. Six judges - Democrats and Republicans - ruled in their favor and they won.
But Greg Abbott sided with the company against the victim. Saying the company had no responsibility.
Thank god, this time…Greg Abbott lost.

As the new school year approaches,
we are obviously in denialteachers are mentally figuring out what materials we need for the school year, what will be provided by the school or families, and what we will buy with our own money as we shop sales (if it is in our budget). Several members of our #education community on tumblr dealt with unexpected family deaths, weather disasters, or more happy (but expensive) life achievements like getting married or having a baby. Our pockets have been hit hard, and I think you’d be surprised how much of our own money we spend on classrooms each year.
Many of us teach in areas where our students’ families cannot help with school supplies. In fact, as I began working on this project, every teacher I contacted to include that came from a more affluent community declined being included so that classrooms in greater need could be helped. I am in awe of the teachers in this community. After the jump is a list of teachers and their classroom wish lists for the upcoming year. If you are able to, please consider supporting a teacher via their wishlist. If you’d rather make a donation to their supply fund or send a gift card, I’m sure you could contact them and they wouldn’t turn you down.
So after the jump are the blogs and corresponding wishlists from Tumblr’s teachers — most of the educators on this list I have personally interacted with and know them to be dedicated to their students.
