The cop who shot a dog in front of its 6 year old owner was fired after outrage from the community and a “Justice for Apollo” campaign.

The cop who shot an unarmed black teen is on paid leave and remains protected by his department. So far, days of outrage and protest have still not brought any justice to Mike Brown.

In America, in 2014, the life of a black man is valued less than that of a dog.






And in that moment everyone realized that Forrest knew. He knew he was “special” and not like everyone else despite going to regular school and college. He knew that he wasn’t like everyone else mentally and his biggest fear was that his son would have to face life like that too. The bullies, the name calling, the confusion, everything. This broke my heart because all he wanted was a better life for his son in every way.


Can you see the relief and pride in the last gif?



Two Brothers Hilariously Re-Create Their Childhood Photos As A Gift For Their Mother

Re-creating childhood photos has become somewhat of an internet trend, and this wonderful and hilarious calendar that the Luxton brothers prepared for their mother for Christmas is probably one of the best examples of this trend that we’ve seen. The premise is simple, and can be recreated by anyone – simply pick out some of your best or funniest childhood photos and do everything that you can to re-create them as an adult.

What’s especially heartwarming about these pictures of Joe Luxton and his brother is that, at least judging by some of these pictures, their brotherly bond has only grown stronger as they’ve grown. In other photos, the juxtaposition of grown-up brothers and childhood clothing/activities makes for a truly hilarious and/or disturbing combination.

They even got their dad, their uncle and their dog to participate. Depending on your take, the one where one of the brothers is sleeping on his dad’s lap is especially funny/creepy.

It seems like there are a lot of photographers interested in exploring their own past through photography. Argentinian photographer Irina Werning similarly re-created childhood photos in her Back to the Future series, which we covered in two parts. Chino Otsuka has done amazing work Photoshopping herself into her childhood photos to explore her own identity.

These photos are easy enough to re-create. If you’ve got the time, try digging through your family photos and your old stuff to see if you can re-create some photos too!
