I laugh at this line in Red Dragon because it basically sums up the entirety of Will Graham’s character
I had a girlfriend before I ever had a boyfriend, but it was just a phase -Mark Gatiss++ MORE HERE
14 year old Josh Phillips was playing baseball when he accidentally hit 8 year old Maddie Clifton in the eye with his bat. Maddie screamed, and out of panic, he dragged her into his house and strangled her with a telephone cord. His attempt at strangling her did not work so he stabbed her eleven times and beat her to death with the baseball bat.
Maddie’s body was only discovered when his mother noticed that his water bed appeared to be leaking, and when she moved the mattress to the side, she found the little girl’s body inside.
He was convicted of the murder and is now serving a life sentence with no possibility for parole.
So I was walking to school the other day and I saw something across the street and I immediately knew it was a dead animal but idk I just wanted to see what it lol I walk over and it’s a mama opossum and she’s dead unfortunately but I see something moving not too far from it as I walk by and I look closer and they’re newborn baby opossums. There was one baby still stuck in the mother and it had died. It was so sad, my heart hurt. There was a man across the street asking me what it was and i explained what I saw. I tried calling animal control to save them but they were closed so I just stayed and ended up putting the two baby opossums that were still alive on the grass, in some shade using a piece of bark that was close by. The baby opossum on the right of the last picture immediately grabbed the piece of bark and pulled itself up. It was so beautiful to see the effort it made to have some sort of comfort and security. The other opossum had a cut on it’s leg and had difficulty moving onto the small piece of bark but eventually it made it :) the second they both were on grass the baby on the right began to hold and shelter the other. It made me at ease all though it was so sad. They were both so vulnerable but the simple fact that they were together and had that safety and comfort, it was okay for the time being. It was so beautiful and I just wanted to share that with you guys. I think about it every now and then and it just makes me feel better. Everything needs a feeling that’s home and makes it feel at ease, it doesn’t matter if it’s a human or an animal or a plant that needs shelter. Everything needs something.
Well now I’m depressed because you didn’t save them
