WHY THE F*** IS THIS HAPPENING

Well, to be honest, it’s not happening, or not in the way it’s being portrayed.

The leaflets could not be traced back to an official source and the guy whose signature is at the bottom (Denis Pushilin, supposed leader of the pro-Russian separatists) claims no responsibility for them.

So in all likelihood it’s just someone trying to stir up distrust for that particular faction! Doesn’t mean that the situation in the Ukraine isn’t awful, but this particular thing isn’t happening.

Here’s the Snopes link to explain it better.

this is actually happening

the situation in Ukraine right now is so f***ed up it is honestly the #1 thing I am scared of right now in the whole world.

102 years ago today, the RMS Titanic sank in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, taking more than fifteen hundred souls with it.

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

To Kill a Mockingbird is a novel by Harper Lee published in 1960. It was immediately successful, winning the Pulitzer Prize, and has become a classic of modern American literature.

The plot and characters are loosely based on the author’s observations of her family and neighbors, as well as on an event that occurred near her hometown in 1936, when she was 10 years old.

The novel is renowned for its warmth and humor, despite dealing with the serious issues of rape and racial inequality. The narrator’s father, Atticus Finch, has served as a moral hero for many readers and as a model of integrity for lawyers.

As a Southern Gothic novel and a Bildungsroman, the primary themes of To Kill a Mockingbird involve racial injustice and the destruction of innocence.

The book is widely taught in schools in the United States with lessons that emphasize tolerance and decry prejudice. (x)
