I was 17 the first time I was raped.

I didn't say anything to anyone. It wasn't like I put up a FIGHT. I just said, "No" then everything happened so fast and I didn't know what to do.

"The enemy of my enemy" is a phrase that no longer works in our current world order. The enemy of my enemy is probably still an enemy and with Donald at the helm, those who used to actually be our "friends" no longer rely on the US. /1

THREAD… The USA, China, and Russia have had a complicated past. Add in Donald's personal conflicts into the issues affecting the country and it gets messy, fast.

USA withdraws from the TPP, which helps Russia, China, Japan /2…

With or without humans, the Earth will still continue. It might not be the home we recognize it as, but it will continue. If we don't care for our home, we are making it uninhabitable for OURSELVES and the biosystem which sustains our lives as we know it. 1/8 With or without humans, the Earth will still follow the known laws of physics, chemistry, and biology. An Earth with unchecked levels of greenhouse gasses will continue to rise in temperature. 2/8…
