Today…

Today is wonderful in that I woke up this morning breathing.
Today is awful in that a dear friend passed away from stage 4 cancer and I have just now found out.
Today is awful in that my compatriot has possibly destroyed her entire life and forever scarred those around her.
I am haunted by my good intentions and unsaid words.
I have no way to go back.
What choice do we have but to move forward? But how?
Why am I so angry? Why does it feel so futile!

52 years ago, at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis, second-in-command Vasilli Arkhipov of the Soviet submarine B-59 refused to agree with his Captain’s order to launch nuclear torpedos against US warships and setting off what might well have been a terminal superpower nuclear war.
The US had been dropping depth charges near the submarine in an attempt to force it to surface, unaware it was carrying nuclear arms. The Soviet officers, who had lost radio contact with Moscow, concluded that World War 3 had begun, and 2 of the officers agreed to ‘blast the warships out of the water’. Arkhipov refused to agree – unanimous consent of 3 officers was required and thanks to him, the world was saved from being scarred badly.
His story is finally being told the BBC is airing a documentary on it.

might just save the god damn world.

The Disney Channel used to air these little shorts about geniuses and historical people. At the end Genie would say, “Great minds don’t think alike. They think for themselves.”


Badass of the day!
