Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act. Don’t worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes. Stop being angry! Turn from your rage! Do not lose your temper—it only leads to harm. For the wicked will be destroyed, but those who trust in the Lord will possess the land.
The three pieces in this series each represent a historical assassination. They reduce a pivotal moment in history to basic math – the point of impact for each bullet and the angle of trajectory – displayed as lines of light intersecting a clear acrylic block. The three people chosen for this series are Malcolm X, King Faisal, and Amadou Diallo. Malcolm X was shot 15 times during one of his speeches on black nationalism. King Faisal was shot in the head by his nephew twice, in what is believed to be a CIA driven assassination. Guinean immigrant, Amadou Diallo was shot at 41 times by police, 19 of the bullets hit him, and the four policemen involved were found not guilty to manslaughter.
On Sunday, I left my Domo pouch on the DART after taking it to Dallas and lost $30, my debit card, student ID, parking meter slip from the first time I visited Berkeley, and the Whataburger receipt from All-State that I kept because it was it was such a special memory.
Today my counselor called me out of class with a huge smile on her face and said to me, “Cynthia, because of this, my faith in humanity has been completely restored”. This completely made my day.

This is absolutely incredible :)
I know this is legit because Cynthia goes to my school and i’m crying because this is beautiful
The crinkle crankle wall economizes on bricks, despite its sinuous configuration, because it can be made just one brick thin. If a wall this thin were to be made in a straight line, without buttresses, it would easily topple over. The alternate convex and concave curves in the wall provide stability and help it to resist lateral forces.
Both crinkle and crankle are defined as something with bends and turns (Webster’s), but the term is also thought to come from Old English meaning zig-zag.
Many crinkle-crankle walls are found in the Fen Country of East Anglia.
