I’m glad that Ferguson is getting attention, seriously I am, but I haven’t seen ONE post about what is happening over seas. Not even one post about the pictures above. Children are being beheaded and dragged into the streets where they are then shot because their families are Christian. Women are being raped and murdered. Men are being murdered. PEOPLE are dying. It’s a Christian Holocaust. And I haven’t seen anything on Tumblr.

Why aren’t any of you furious about this?! Where’s the “social justice?” ISIS is murdering people who don’t convert to Islam (yes, I know they’re extremists and not all Muslims are like that. Save yourself the rant) but I really want to know why this hasn’t been given the attention it deserves.

Seriously, guys. This is really scary, and we need to raise attention for these people. They so desperately need our prayers and support.

literature series → lady of shalott

on either side the river lie
long fields of barley and of rye,
that clothe the wold and meet the sky;
and thro’ the field the road runs by
to many-tower’d camelot;
and up and down the people go,
gazing where the lilies blow
round an island there below,
the island of shalott
there she weaves by night and day
a magic web with colours gay.
she has heard a whisper say,
a curse is on her if she stay
to look down to camelot.

lying, robed in snowy white
that loosely flew to left and right
the leaves upon her falling light
thro’ the noises of the night
she floated down to camelot
and as the boat-head wound along
the willowy hills and fields among,
they heard her singing her last song,
the lady of shalott

Instructions on How to be King
A previously unseen letter written in 1749 from Frederick, Prince of Wales to his son, the future George III giving advice on how to be a good king has been revealed by The Royal Collection. Frederick was the estranged son of George II but takes inspiration from his grandfather, George I, for his ideas.
He encourages his son: 

The sooner you have an opportunity to lower the interest, for God’s sake, do it… if you can be without war, let not your ambition draw you into it… Flatterers, Courtiers or Ministers, are easy to be got, but a true Friend is difficult to be found… Let your steadiness retrieve the glory of the throne.

Furthermore, he urges George to reduce the country’s debt, ease the tax burden and to behave as ‘an Englishman born and bred’. 
Sounds like he would have been a good king himself, but he died prematurely and never took the throne. Eerily, he writes in the letter how '[He] shall have no regret never to have wore the Crown, if [George] do but fill it worthily'.
