THIS IS FOR REAL: One Burger King restaurant in San Francisco is selling the “Proud Whopper” through the week of SF Pride. It’s exactly the same as a regular Whopper, price and all, except it comes in a rainbow-tastic Pride wrapper that reads “We Are All The Same Inside” when you unwrap it. All proceeds are donated to a foundation providing scholarships to LGBT students. Get thee to 1200 Market Street! (via USA Today

Today I spent the day watching Robin Williams movies. There is one movie in particular that is a highly underrated children’s movie: JACK, as I was watching it a character said something quite moving- it had me in tears.

"You were a shooting star among ordinary stars. It’s wonderful and passes quickly, but while its here it lights up the whole sky, so beautiful in fact that the other stars, well they just stop to watch."

I was just sitting in stunned silence with how fitting those words were in this particular case with this same man years later. I know we’ve heard a lot about Robin in the past week, but he like so many others suffer with chronic mental illness and the discussion around it needs to keep happening. End the stigma and help the people around you by learning more, helping more and loving more.

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. Medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, ‘O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?’ Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?
