SOMEONE FINALLY SAID IT
So if a teenager is at school for roughly 8 hours, and they are doing homework for 6+ hours, and they need AT LEAST 9 HOURS OF SLEEP FOR THEIR DEVELOPING BRAINS, then they may have 0-1 hours for other activities like eating, bathing, exercise, socializing (which is actually incredibly important for emotional, mental, and physical health, as well as the development of skills vital to their future career and having healthy romantic relationships among other things), religious activities, hobbies, extra curriculars, medical care of any kind, chores (also a skill/habit development thing and required by many parents), relaxation, and family time? Not to mention that your parents may or may not pressure you to get a job, or you might need to get one for economic reasons.
I will never not reblog this
"…but teenagers have no reason to be stressed."
No, Jim. No kidding. I’m gunna murder them. I’m going to be incarcerated for mass murder, but I’m going to end these fucks.
I have a perfect spot to hide the bodies. Also, I’ll gladly bail you out while you flee the country.
I’m already going to hell, what’s a few more mortal sins on my hands.
They do not know what they have brought forth…. This is gonna be messy.
You wanna know what would be interesting actually? Making a human chain incircling Mr. Williams and his grieving family, we’ll surround the ENTIRE graveyard if we have to and block out those signs, so they know he was a very dearly loved and a forever missed man and send a message to those Westboro BASTARDS who dare say they are riteous men that no one will stand for them any longer. We will build bigger signs so that his family won’t have to lay eyes on words of hate but instead words of love and meaning, pictures on every single picket of ours of Mr. Williams and his career, of him smiling with only hearts and flowers on each sign. Make them bigger and higher so that we drown out the voices of those who dare turn such a sad event into a monetary opporunity.
Make it so that not a single sign of the Westboro church can ever be seen by his family so they can have a peaceful last goodbye to such a wonderful human being. One who cared so much about others and taught us so much about how we needed to live life and enjoy it while we could. We’ll have a banner that will have everyone’s favorite quotes written on every corner and every edge. We will show exactly just how much we loved and respected such a man how much we appreciated him, and just how much the world will miss him. Make it so that that church doesn’t have a voice to share or a soapbox to stand on.
We will have a chain of people at the backs of those with the picket signs who will hold hands and allow NOT A SINGLE BIT OF THEIR CHURCH PROPAGANDA TO PASS! They can do nothing against us. We will be the stronger and louder voice. We will scream and shout above their hate so that Mr. Williams may be put to a well deserved peaceful rest.
This actually happened at the funeral of Matthew Shepard, a gay man who was killed in 1998 in Laramie. Westboro Baptist Church picketed his funeral, but his friends dressed up in white robes and massive angel wings to block them out. When Fred Phelps attempted to talk about Matthew’s sins and his deserved death, they began to sing Hallelujah above Phelps and drowned him out so they could allow people to mourn Matthew in peace. I think that we should do the same thing. Sing words of love and loss over Westboro’s hatred, rather than scream back. Show love on a day where it is needed most.
