How can someone bare and do this..? I still can't place my mind around it. I've studied human behavior so much, yet still can't find a hint of understanding as to how people can look at this and feel proud to continue with their act. Even if a "human kind" was thought to be the pest of the world, they look just like you, breathe, walk, talk, blink, and if you cut them open, you'll see the same heart and organs that you yourself and your mother and father had. But to go further and do it to CHILDREN..?! It's amazing how people clung to Hitler's every word. How they BELIEVED. And you think your life is tough..? Do you see that group of kids up there- one babygirl crying, but look- if you look closely you'll see two boys smiling. And whatever it was that brought their aching souls to glide a soft smile onto their young faces will never be known, but it doesn't take away from the fact that nomatter how fucked up things are in life, they are proof that you can still smile. My heart aches for these children. Nobody should ever witness, let alone live through things like these. And for those who bash the military, imagine what the world would look like if America's MILITARY never stopped this. #holocaust #children #victims #men #jews #life #war #military #Germans #nazi #WWII #sad
  • God so have mercy on their souls, fir what they did is unforgivable in man's eyes.. #naziparty

  • When I go to Germany to visit Michael, I'm definitely going to make him go to a concentration camp.. I want to pay my respects in a way. And see it for myself. 💔

  • @abbeylee_ OMG, do so..! haha. Me, too. As soon as I land in Germany again that will be my first stop. Every single camp, memorial, museum they have- I'm dragging B along. It's STILL hard to believe that this actually happened..

  • @monasuniverse Heart braking...

  • Agreed ...cruelty of fear and ignorance is beyond words and understanding ... An ongoing battle in the world....

  • Sadly man can do this and worse! Nice thoughtful post!

  • @ramonareich very disturbing fact..

  • @cloud_surfer man can, because man allows it. And thank you.. (:

  • Yep true that theres a fascinating study about how Nazi soldiers were capable of following orders to the point of killing & torturing people that was conducted in the US that tried to answer exactly the question ur asking: how could human beings follow orders so directly that they would kill & commit genocide? Its required reading in most colleges

  • @cloud_surfer really..?! Do you know what the study was called..? And I don't wait for assignments, they wait for me.. ;P

  • Tip of my tougue, I'll look it up. But I do remember that the Americans that were the test subjects & continually electro shocked the fake victim behind the wall they could hear screaming had to get therapy cuz they ended up feelin so dang guilty!

  • @cloud_surfer it sounds like the experiment they did in France, if I remember correctly. They told some participants that this was a game show and if the guy answered wrong, the participant was in control of how much they'd get shocked, but they had to shock them. At first, most just started off small- they call it the test run- to see what would happen if they shocked 'em. But as confidence rose, the voltage did too. They didn't feel sorrow or were concerned at all. It was crazy.

  • Yep something like that! Not sure if it was a gameshow but u definitely got the idea. It made me think personally that i should always be THINKING, whether Im a subordinate or specially in a position in control as an officer, boss or daddy: "Is what Im being asked 2do or wat Im asking MORAL?". If not, NO ONE IS GOING TO DENIGRATE MY MORAL FIBER & CODE. Later

  • @cloud_surfer Yep.. Same here. I mean, eventhough I knew myself and that I would never hurt a human to that extent- even if I had the power to, at the end of the video I was questioning myself.. Ad yep. Stay strong ma brotha..! ;D

The word suicide caught your attention, didn’t it?
.
.
The truth is, SUICIDE catches everyone’s attention.
.
.
It’s the actions that lead up to suicide that go unnoticed.
.
.
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
.
.
On average, one in three Veterans have contemplated suicide. ONE in THREE. .
.
In honor of Veteran’s Day, I️ ask that y’all please keep this statistic in mind. .
.
As you wish someone a “Happy Veteran’s Day”, remember that you’re making a difference simply by voicing your appreciation.
.
.
If you’re walking in town, greet a veteran. .
.
If you’re staying in, Facebook one.
.
.
If you’re observing a ceremony, STAND UP FOR LIFE.
.
.
Whatever you do, reach out and make it known that you VALUE them.
.
.
Thank you for showing your appreciation.
.
.
The war on veteran suicide starts AT HOME. .
.
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
.
.
And dear brothers and sisters,
.
.

IF YOU’RE STRUGGLING

Please know that you are NOT alone.
You MATTER. .
.
DON’T GIVE UP.✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
.
.
Please.. if you can’t talk to your chain of command, family, or the Suicide Prevention Crisis Line- know that I’m here for you. .
.
I’ve watched too many lives fade this year. Please, continue to fight. You don’t have to do it alone. I’ll be your battle buddy if you need one. Not all wounds are visible, so you just gotta SPEAK UP. That’s it. I’ll be there with you shoulder to shoulder. Regardless of branch, age, sex, beliefs.. You are my brothers and sisters.
.
.
One a day is too many. Together we can fight the statistic.

What breaks my heart most is that it took her leaving us, to realize that she couldn’t stay forever.
Even though she kept warning me that her time was coming to an end. I heard every word she spoke, but I was too busy with life to really listen. .
.
I somehow imagined that she was immortal. And in a way, she was..
.
.

Although many thought this trip was a waste of time and money, it meant the world to me. .
.

I strongly believe that a little piece of her lives in each and every family member of mine. I got to see her again.. in everyone’s hugs, in everyone’s words, and in everyone’s faces. .
.

In life, you will eventually lose someone you love and your heart will be badly broken. The bad news is that you never really get over the loss of a loved one, but this is also the good news. They live on forever in your heart.. .
.

I am forever grateful to have known such an amazingly beautiful woman. 🥀

“Sometimes you will never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory..” 🥀
.
.
To those that have been praying for us, I ask that each of you take today to find one little moment to cherish that you normally take for granted. It can be anything from someone giving you a hug to simply having breakfast with someone you love. ♥️

PFT season is a little ways out, but it is never too early to start prepping for it. And with it, the all too dreaded pull up.. 🙉🙈🙊
.
.
I was wondering if any of you would be interested in becoming an accountability partner. Y’all can pick your own friends to do it with or join my group! 👯
.
.
The goal will be to set a daily check-in time with your partner/s and motivate each other. 📲👏🏼✨
.
.
Our goal will be to do 👉🏼20👈🏼 every day. You’re welcome to break it down however you want or use a band. (Example: do 5 when you wake up, 5 before lunch, 5 in the afternoon, and 5 before bed)
.
.
The point of this is to start making it a [h a b i t]. From then on, I ask that you CHALLENGE yourself. Be your BIGGEST competitor and challenge yourself EACH DAY to be BETTER than you were yesterday! .
.
Still lacking motivation? No worries. I GOTCHU! 🤙🏼
.
.
🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻
.
.
According to studies, there are four ways to get motivated:

1. GIVE YOURSELF A REAL REWARD (MAX OUT FOR THE PFT!😜🙌🏼🤸🏻‍♀️✨)
2. SIGN A COMMITMENT CONTACT (I hereby pronounce thee accountability partners! 💍👰🏻🏃🏻‍♀️💪🏼)
3. RETHINK POSITIVE THINKING! (Why do you and why don’t you wanna a pull up and what can you do about it?)
4. FIND YOUR FITNESS TRIBE! 💁🏻 Dedicated to one of the most inspirational SGTs I’ve ever met: @semper_yut 🙌🏼🙌🏼
.
.
And with that- LADIES, who’s ready to start kicking ass on a pull-up bar?
.
.
.
P.S.: if you’re interested in joining my group, halla!

#ThursdayThoughts 💭
.
.
.
For those that know me personally, y'all know how much of a Woman's Woman I am. I love to see my fellow sisters succeed and find happiness in themselves and in everything they do.
One thing that hurts me most is when there are chicks out there who feel the need to HATE women. YOU'RE part of the problem and this is for you:

You can always tell who the strong women are. They're the ones you see building one another other up, instead of tearing each other down.
I simply don't understand you. Yes, there are a bunch of ugly women- but a few uglies shouldn't give the entire gender a reputation. Hell, guys have LOTS of uglies, yet you stick by their side like crazy glue. Why? What's so wrong with loving and supporting your own kind? What's so wrong with backing a sister up? What's so wrong with showing kindness? Men will never truly understand you the way a woman will. No other man will know you as well as another woman. We're unique. We're powerful. We're simply amazing. And until we treat each other with that kind of honor and respect, how can we expect our fellow brothers to do it in return? .
.
.
This is a call to every one of my beautiful friends (and those that I don't even know yet): Lead by example! 👉🏼Your challenge for Friday is to compliment 3 women you don't usually speak to. 👉🏼And for my extremists: compliment EVERY woman you cross paths with. .
.
.
P.S.: This post is NOT encouraging you to hate our fellow brothers. "Be somebody who makes EVERYBODY feel like a somebody." 💕
