This link came across my desk this morning. I believe my own congregation is very trauma-informed. I also know that we’ve become that way through the investment of many, many trauma survivors who have spoken out when they’re uncomfortable, shamed, blamed or marginalized. So I’m grateful for that. We’re all standing on someone’s shoulders — usually many someones.
every once in awhile my co-workers bring in an extra burger or breakfast sandwich and leave it up for grabs in the kitchen. they’re all like, “it was a twofer!” or, “for just $0.01 more I got two and I didn’t really want it!”
I never really understand this kind of generosity. I appreciate it and i’ll definitely eat your extra food, but if it were me I would have just eaten both.
Can we talk about Ray for a second? He seems to be pretty alone in the world. Evangeline, the love of his life, is dead and has become a star. People think he’s crazy because he’s presumably in love with a star. Yet, Ray is not in the least bit bitter. He’s completely hopeful and he loves love, that’s all. He wants everyone to have what he had with Evangeline because he knows that it was rare and beautiful and magic.
And then he sacrifices himself for the sake of his friends and their happiness in the end.
Ray is the best and one of the most underrated Disney sidekicks just because he didn’t have a lot of funny one liners.
He’s also incredibly underrated because people view him as unintelligent and stupid because of his dialect. You’re not stupid, or ignorant just because you come from the south.
