Today, What She Heals will be closed so I can attend the services of Officer Sean Gannon, shot and killed in the line of duty last week. As a police wife and a member of this quiet, generally peaceful community, I am shocked, saddened, and angry. I appreciate your understanding, and I ask that you please send your love to Officer Gannon’s family. 💙
About 3 hours ago all the students at Hacc were sent an email informing them that a Hate Group would be protesting on Campus today. They warned that this group had been known to incite violence, and requested that everyone remain aware, that they use sound judgment and to not engage with this group.
I arrived just in time to be greeted by my previous Academic Coach. He briefed me on the nature of the protest well before it started. As it went on it became clearer and clearer that the protesters actually woke up today and decided that they were gonna try their hardest to tear people down. As the Secretary of the African American Student Association and a Psychology major, I found myself astonished by how backwards their ideology was. If you asked them they'd tell you that any women that drinks, has a snapchat, or has had premarital sex is a Grade A hoe. This same protestor who couldn't recite a single quote from the bible used the bible to justify his belief that women aren't any good without men, AND that homosexuals are nothing but deviants.
Despite the overwhelming amount of ignorance spoken today, there was an upsurge in love and unity amongst students and faculty. With faculty members reminding students not to stoop to their level, and more than enough warm messages to go around, the audience overpowered the protestors immature attempts to disgruntle them.
#motivationmonday#medalmonday#bostonmarathon2018 - Congratulations to UTTC athletes Makie Ohler and Coach Walter who ran the Boston Marathon today in the toughest conditions in 122 years!! Torrential rains, cold and wind could not stop these amazing athletes! Makie ran 3:35.13 and Coach Walter ran 3:37.06, after spending more than 25 minutes in the medical tent at 20 miles, where the medics advised him that it was not advisable to proceed with the marathon since he was suffering from severe hypothermia. Kudos to both of these amazing UTTC Masters athletes. You are both examples and of courage, tenacity and strength. We salute the two of you. Well done!! #werunTO#uttc#uttcmasters#bleedblue#weallbleedblue#bostonmarathon#marathonrunners#baa#runtoinspire#runnersofinstagram#inspiringrunners#runners @varsitybluestf @canadianrunning @runnershoutouts @theterminalmile @athleticsont @irunnation @ontariorunners @athleticscanada @runnerspace @john.halvorsen.16 @alnbrookes @peter_ciaccia @citiusmag
The season started off great, but we didn't make the playoffs, ceasing our 6 year stretch extended streak. Hopefully we can get a better nucleus of players to make some better things happen consistently, goaltending with a more solid base and less injuries! LET'S GO BLUES!!! #letsgoblues 💙 #alltogethernow#stlouisblues#WeAllBleedBlue
Congratulations to UTTC Coach Walter Faion and UTTC athlete Rachel Hannah who raced the 8km Spring Run Off in High Park on a very cold, windy Saturday April 7, 2018. Coach Walter ran 34:25 and placed 3rd in the M50 division. Rachel ran 29:19 and was the 3rd overall female. Well done to both athletes who successfully conquered the HILL!! #uttc#bleedblue#springrunoff#runthehill#conquerthehill#highpark#runtoinspire#runto#weallbleedblue @varsitybluestf @canadianrunning @athleticsont @ontariorunners @runitfast @runcrs @alnbrookes @raceroster @brooksrunningca @nbrunning
I just want to say thank you so much Blues Fans and All fans from the bottom of my heart! This year has been so amazing and a blessing! I couldn't of asked for better people to interact with and be around, the Blues Nation is something words can't describe! It's a great feeling to say I'm a Blues Fan! I have no regrets throwing on that sweater nor do I back down defending that sweater, just like the thousands of fans that do that on a daily basis! I am tearing up typing this post so I'm going to say Thank you Pietrangelo for giving me someone to look up to! You're a great human being a down to earth man and are going to be a great father! Next season will be a bright opening to the future! Sadly I will not be here to cheer it on with you all as I will be in Japan while serving in the Navy! I may be gone from the screen but I am never going to stop bleeding Blue! Not anyone to blame but ourselves this season! It's a team effort! 💙WE FIGHT TO THE LAST MAN, TO THE LAST MINUTE, TO THAT FINAL HORN WHEN THAT CLOCK HITS 00:00!!! WE ARE ONE NATION! ST LOUIS STRONG💙💛💙💛THANK YOU EVERYONE FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART AGAIN! GOD BLESS! LOVE YOU ALL🙏🏻💙💛 .
This is a sad day for us Blues fans, as we lose 5-2 to the Avalanche (who are owned by crooked terrorist Kroenke). As a result, the Avs are in and the Blues are eliminiated. I pray the Avs lose their series to Nashville just because they eliminated my Blues from the playoffs.
As for who I'm rooting for in the playoffs: I will be backing a Penguins 3-peat or a Vegas cup bid, and basically anybody but Nashville, Los Angeles, or Philly.
Also, the NHL officials can 🖕off, too.
I hope next year will FINALLY be our year to win the Stanley Cup! 😡😡😡😡🖕🖕🖕🖕 #STLvsCOL#STLBlues#AllTogetherNowSTL#Blues#NHLPlayoffs#WeAllBleedBlue#LGB #🏒
Super late but congratulations to @sjamieson2 for receiving her Silver T after multiple OUA all-stars and @s.daniela9 for receiving her Bronze T at the presidents reception!
Alright @stlouisblues, I shaved off the beard to get rid of all the bad juju. Now, win this game, get a point tomorrow, and let’s get into the playoffs so I can grow my #playoffbeard back! #weallbleedblue#babyface
