Today in Solidarity: Brazilians Against Police Brutality! (8.24.14)
As long as children are loved, clean (to a certain extent b/c they are messy as hell anyway) and have the resources they need to grow and thrive and those resources aren’t at the expense of another child’s growth/thriving; i really don’t know why anyone would be pressed…
especially about a child’s edges being smooth.
there are post apocalyptic looking classrooms and schools and communities that have compromised water and no access to food that isn’t processed…
worry about the emotional trauma our kids are suffering from watching ppl who look like them be murdered in cold blood with little to no collective retribution…worry about what message that’s sending to our babies and what that’s doing to them.
blue ivy’s twist out should be no one’s problem or concern. i’m literally over the jokes and the bullshit. there is so much that our children are up against and we shouldn’t be depriving them worth and love b/c of the way their hair grows from their heads.

HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE
Let’s say it’s 6.15pm and you’re going home (alone of course), after an unusually hard day on the job. You’re really tired, upset and frustrated. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up into your jaw. You are only about five miles from the hospital nearest your home. Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself..!!
NOW HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE…
Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.
However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously.
A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.
A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.
Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating.
The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can perhaps buy precious time to get themselves to a phone and dial 911.
