Direk Roxanne Lapus was PURE CLASS. PURE HEART. Such a PURE SOUL. And now she is with Jesus, the source of her strength and faith. My heart is grieving for the loss of a great genius so totally in love with our Savior. We did many projects together and had the best conversations about life, faith and purpose. She had fought a good fight. She ran a good race. 🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏼‍♀️As she now stands before Jesus whose cause she had stood for in the last and greatest years of her beautiful life, I set aside my mourning and rejoice greatly knowing she had finally found rest, peace and is home. Farewell my dearest friend, creative director, prayer partner and loving sister Roxanne - I will miss you very much. I will miss your profound words about the industry. I will miss your lisp. And the legs haha.... I will miss your constructive criticism of anything and everything showbiz. 🎹🎼🎧🎤🎬🤹🏿‍♂️🤹🏻‍♀️🎭📺📸🎥📽📀💽🎶🎵 I will miss praying with you... 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 Tears fill my eyes 😢 as I write but her last words to me yesterday before she died (of an aneurism and cardiac arrest) were that she was praying for me, for Gary and Genesis. Her last statement to me on June 14 was - “Let us stand firm in faith” after she found out about another medical challenge of Gary. The Lord is good and worthy to be praised. The entertainment industry has lost one of its greatest and most loving (and loved) live entertainment directors. I am so so so sad. As her favorite talent Raymond Lauchengco’s song says..farewell my friend. And thank you. My life was made richer with you in it. No one came close. So selfless, so ethical, so giving, so caring, so passionate, so authentic. You will be missed. Standing ovation for you Direk !🏆🏅🏵🎖 I love you !!!! 😇😭👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻💔💔💔💔💔

Roxana left her native country of Honduras to flee the "violence, hate, stigma, and vulnerability" she suffered as a transgender woman, Pueblo Sin Fronteras said. "She saw in the United States the opportunity to start new life free of abuse, risk, and threats, by seeking asylum," the organizations said. Roxana had crossed the US border at least three times before. She entered the country illegally twice between 2005 and 2009, and was granted voluntarily return to Mexico after claiming she was Mexican, ICE said. In 2014, Hernandez entered the US for a third time and was deported shortly after, according to ICE. Roxanna died at a hospital in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She died from what appeared to be cardiac arrest, according to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials. Roxanna was one of roughly 25 transgender and gender nonconforming individuals who joined the Central American migrant caravan in April.
was one of roughly 25 transgender and gender nonconforming individuals who joined the Central American migrant caravan in April.
Several immigrant advocacy groups claim Hernandez died due to medical negligence by immigration officials. "During her first week in the United States, Roxy's body and spirit quickly deteriorated. Why incarcerate and torture her like this?," a joint-statement by groups Pueblo Sin Fronteras, Diversidad Sin Fronteras and Al Otro Lado said. She was cold, lacked adequate food or medical care, and was held in a cell with the lights turned on 24 hours a day, the groups said. They called the detention center an "ice box." "Paired with the abuse we know transgender people regularly suffer in ICE detention, the death of Ms. Hernández sends the message that transgender people are disposable and do not deserve dignity, safety, or even life," said Isa Noyola, deputy director at Transgender Law Center. Roxanna, I lové you, we lové you, and you did not deserve this, everything about his is unacceptable, disturbing and sad, you & your story will never be forgotten babe.

My mom is magnificent. I’m just not sure if other moms had to dodge and weave thru life like what I’ve made my mom do.. At one point she almost fist fought the principal of my elementary school because he wanted to send me to boarding school because i was selling cigarettes.. then there was the awkward teenage years where I had no friends.. Would spend my time just kicking a soccer ball off the side of the house.. I’d break a window, she’d keep motivating.. Dealing with colleges for both soccer and football.. right into Morgantown, West Virginia, playing a sport and a position she knew nothing about.. She was a soccer mom, and a football fan.. She knew very little about kicking or punting.. But she studied.. Every kick was a nightmare situation for my mom.. “oh my god oh my god oh my god” just hoping for the best.. Then, 1 game it didn’t go well.. Now she had to be a super mom while getting thru a 27 death threat situation after my Junior Year.. We got to the other side of it and the next thing she knows, she has to become a diehard Indianapolis Colts fan. She grew up a diehard Steelers fan.. Just like the rest of Pittsburgh.. but they didn’t draft her baby, so “fuck ‘em”.. Went to the Super Bowl.. life was good.. then.. i couldn’t help it.. had to fuck up.. right into the Alleged event.. If you go back and listen to my apology after the arrest, there was no script, there was no planning, it was me just trying to tell my mom that i was SO incredibly sorry for embarrassing our family.. I, in no way, made my mom’s life easy.. The complete opposite to be exact.. But she has always been my number 1 fan. “You don’t have a curfew” she’d say in high school.. “But you’re not missing school”.. I’d be out with my brother and his friends until 1-2am.. 6am rolls around “GOOD MORNING SWEETHEART, DID YOU HAVE FUN LAST NIGHT? Oh, ok good... Cereal’s on the table. Get the fuck up”.. She held me accountable, she nurtured me, and she’s had faith in me when i don’t even think i did.. Couldn’t imagine what else a perfect mom should do. We all love you @sallymcaf. I hope you enjoy the hell out of today. 😘😘

Synopsis: Tom and Abby Stuart had everything: a perfect marriage, successful careers, and a beautiful twelve-year-old daughter, Caitlin. Then one day Caitlin vanished without a trace. For a while they grasped at every false hope and followed every empty lead, but the tragedy ended up changing their lives, overwhelming them with guilt and dread, and shattering their marriage. •
Four years later, Caitlin is found alive but won't discuss where she was or what happened. And when the police arrest a suspect connected to her disappearance, she refuses to testify. Taking matters into his own hands, Tom tries to uncover the truth—and finds that nothing that has happened yet can prepare him for what he is about to discover.

Sandra Bland was arrested on July 10th, 2015 from failure to signal at a traffic stop, which resulted in a physical encounter with a Texas police officer that was all captured on the dash cam. Three days later on July 13th, her body was found hanged in her jail cell. The arresting state trooper was indicted for perjury in making false statements surrounding Bland’s arrest, but the charge was later dropped.

untitled 2018 (left right left) (left)
glazed ceramic, Hong Kong orchid owers, stainless steel
sculpture: 81 x 27 x 9.5 cm
plinth: 77.7 x 40 x 40 cm

These new works specifically reference events surrounding Hong Kong’s Umbrella Revolution, whilst concurrently reflecting the artist’s broader political ideologies.
Each sculpture consists of a pair of military boots sculpted by Tiravanija’s hands in clay and then glazed in dark black with a fresh pink Hong Kong orchid flower protruding from the boots. The ceramic boots will sit on mirror polish stainless steel plinths evoking the artist’s chrome aesthetic seen throughout much of his ouevre.

Black boots, reminiscent of military iconography across the world, are transformed into hand made glazed vases for beautiful orchid flowers native to Hong Kong. The flower has often been viewed as a symbol of peace and the orchid, more specifically, represents fertility and love according to feng shui, whilst also appearing on Hong Kong’s coat of arms since 1997. Each plinth is made to the exact height of 77.7 cm, drawing upon the lucky number seven in Chinese culture.
Tiravanija references a specific moment during the Umbrella Revolution when a 14-year-old girl was arrested for drawing a chalk flower on a wall where thousands were displaying protest artworks and their wishes for the future. The arrest sparked widespread criticism and triggered numerous copycat chalk-drawing protests in the city. Her case was reported all around the globe and the police overreaction was relentlessly parodied by supporters and illustrators in numerous cartoons and
articles. The world dubbed her Chalk Girl. Tiravanija pays homage to this act of peaceful rebellion through the power of art: Rirkrit quotes: “I’m interested in slowing everything down so that you can look at the details. The reason I make the things that I do, and the way that I do, is just to give people space to stop and pause. To stop and pause at this point is a kind of transgression.”

There is this beautiful purplish flower, Autumn Crocus, once it's in someone's blood, it's posion leads to cardiac arrest. Then there's the Belladonna, a beautiful seductress feeding you her berries and stealing the life right from your mouth. I am a flower, honey. But flowers were never fragile. We're beautiful, seducing, but as strong as the soil beneath us. I am an Angel's Trumpet, I am a Paradise Plant. People mistake my beauty for weakness, they choose to only see the soft petals. Until they try to hurt me. .

And the chief priests and the scribes were seeking how to arrest him by stealth and kill him, for they said, "Not during the feast, lest there be an uproar from the people."
And while he was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he was reclining at table, a woman came with an alabaster flask of ointment of pure nard, very costly, and she broke the flask and poured it over his head.
There were some who said to themselves indignantly, "Why was the ointment wasted like that?
For this ointment could have been sold for more than three hundred denarii and given to the poor." And they scolded her.
But Jesus said, "Leave her alone. Why do you trouble her? She has done a beautiful thing to me. For you always have the poor with you, and whenever you want, you can do good for them. But you will not always have me. She has done what she could; she has anointed my body beforehand for burial. And truly, I say to you, wherever the gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what she has done will be told in memory of her."
Then Judas Iscariot, who was one of the twelve, went to the chief priests in order to betray him to them. And when they heard it, they were glad and promised to give him money. And he sought an opportunity to betray him.”
Mark 14:1-11

When a man loves a woman, it can be the most beautiful thing in the world. Kyme is looking for love in all the wrong places. Her man, Donovan is nothing more than a little boy in a man’s body. While pregnant with her second child by Donovan, Kyme works hard getting up in the early morning to catch the city bus to get her oldest to day care and herself to work. While at the bus stop, she notices a guy that seems to be there every day but he never gets on the bus.
Donovan gets arrested leaving Kyme all alone to raise two kids. Single and unsure of her next move, Kyme finds herself face to face with the man from the bus stop, Kwad.
Kwad is a heavy hitta in the streets. Everyone knows and respects him. He is the plug to all the big timers and he has his eyes set on Kyme. What starts out as him simply making sure
she gets on the bus safely, because she lives in a set of apartments that is known for trapping, quickly escalates into something more like a thug in love.

Kwad and Kyme’s relationship is filled with a roller coaster of emotions. Kyme struggles to find her place in Kwad’s life. While at the same time, he struggles with being in a real relationship for the first time.
As Kyme and Kwad tries to push through their differences and make their relationship work, it becomes clear that not everyone is happy about the couple being together. Two murders and an arrest threatens to put an end to the couple’s relationship. Kyme’s trust is violated and Kwad’s commitment to Kyme is questioned. Will the couple be able to prevail?

But during its moment, all that is remembered joins, and lives—the old and the young, the past and the present, the living and the dead.” —Eudora Welty
.

When I began photographing in the 1970s, my first and natural subject was my family.
.
Here is an early Kodachrome portrait of my paternal grandmother, Lillian (Mammaw, 73 years old), in the spring of 1978.
.
Some time ago, a relative emailed a single paragraph to me — a newspaper notice about my grandmother's father's death in Valley View, Kentucky, September 9th, 1910. The article stated that a sixteen year old youth, Ollie Thomas, "emptied the contents of his shotgun into the stomach of William Masters.” The reporter added that the boy provided no explanation at the time of his arrest but that one would be forthcoming. As the story goes, my grandmother heard the shot and found her father's body on the front porch. Mammaw was five years old at the time. At the age of 13, her mother died of the flu in the epidemic of 1918. By sixteen, she was married with her first child.
.
With only a third grade education, she said that she learned to do math by reading her children's school books.
.
Passing away in 2001, she left a lasting impression on me of a beautiful, strong-willed woman who endured and survived the tragedies that came to her unbidden over the course of her ninety-six years of life. She is an inspiration.

🦄🎉🎊🎀IZZY IS HOME🎀🎊🎉🦄
Izzy surprised us all and started eating like a champ overnight! So after watching her feed for 24 full hours, we were discharged from the NICU! She is still on oxygen though, but that's alright, cause we're home!!!!!!!! Matt is so sad because he's at work and missed the coming home day but he will be back on Tuesday and we can't freaking wait!!! Lexis was BEYOND excited!! She has been such a great big sister. So attentive and loving. She's obsessed with her head. Feels how "soft" her hair is. She basically pets Izzy 😂 Izzy weights 5lbs 6oz now which is above birth weight! Woo hoo! She's gaining them lbs! About darn time! Our first night home was a total success. She sleeps so well and eats every two- three hours. She's such a good baby. So happy too! I can't even begin to explain how happy we are! Unfortunately, we're on house arrest till the end of April 😫 we can't risk exposing Izzy to anything and her ending up back in the NICU. So no leaving the house for us. Since her lungs are still an issue, it would be detrimental to her if she got sick. It gives us both plenty of time to recover and get back to 100% though. I think it's a blessing in disguise. Im extremely fortunate to have the help of family and friends to get silly things done like going to the grocery store or running Lexis around to practices and school. My village is hands down the best. Matt and I couldn't have asked for anything more perfect than this. We are so very very fortunate and lucky for such a beautiful and growing family and all our support! That's all for now. I'm gonna enjoy family time and finding our new routine! Please keep sending the prayers- they're clearly working!!!! 😘😘😘

One May day in 1901 general of Paris received a strange letter declaring that a prominent family in the city was keeping a dirty secret. The note was handwritten and unsigned, but the attorney general was so disturbed by its contents that he decided to investigate immediately.

When the police arrived at the Monnier estate, they had misgivings. Madam Monnier was known in Parisian high society for her charitable works, & had even received a community award in recognition of her generous contributions. Her son, Marcel, had excelled at school & now worked as a respectable lawyer.

The Monniers had also had a beautiful young daughter, Blanche, but no one had seen her in close to 25 years.Described by acquaintances as “very gentle and good-natured,” the young socialite had simply vanished in the prime of her youth, just as high-society suitors had begun to come calling. No one gave much thought to this strange episode any longer and the family went about their lives as though it had never happened.

The police made a customary search of the estate and did not come across anything out of the ordinary until they noticed a putrid odor coming from one of the upstairs rooms. Upon further investigation, it was revealed that the door had been padlocked shut. Realizing that something was amiss, the police smashed the lock and broke into the room, unprepared for the horrors that lay within. When the police officer had opened the window, it was the first time Blanche Monnier had seen the sun in over two decades. She had been kept completely naked and chained to her bed since the time of her mysterious “disappearance” 25 years earlier. Unable to even get up to relieve herself, the now-middle-aged woman was covered in her own filth and surrounded by the vermin that had been lured in by the rotting scraps.

The horrified policemen were so overwhelmed by the smell of filth and decay that they were unable to stay in the room more than a few minutes: Blanche had been there for twenty-five years. She was immediately taken to a hospital while her mother and brother were placed under arrest. ( continued in comments )

Last night, I was sat with Fato Family for the ceremony. I knew Mrs. Fato had lost her mother at the hands of an impaired driver but I didn’t know the specifics and I wasn’t going to pry.

I knew Mrs. Fato had lost her mother at the hands of an impaired driver but I didn’t know the specifics and I wasn’t going to pry. In the few short hours that we shared a table, I could tell that she had a beautiful soul. Her children were beautiful and vibrant and engaging. Her husband, funny! • Later in the evening this little girl, Luchia, stole my heart! She ran up to me at two different moments to hug me and tell me “thank you” followed with a “congratulations.” She ran up to ME ... someone who was a perfect stranger just hours before. All she knew about me is that I’m girl, I have a police dog, I’m a police officer, and I arrest people who shouldn’t be driving. She first hugged me was when I was walking back to our table after receiving my “Officer of the Year” award. The second time was after her father and brother announced that they would be giving me the police birdhouse. She hopped up out of her chair and thanked and hugged me a second time. I asked her if she would like to walk on stage with me. She gleamed! I was then surrounded by the entire family for a picture, which I will also post. • This is why DUI enforcement is so very important! It’s not about an award (although it does sometimes foster some good ole competition among “DUI Guys”). It’s about families and working our hardest to keep our roadways safe so everyone makes it to their loved ones at the end of their trip. • Charity, I want to thank you and your family for an amazing evening! You are so appreciated and I am very thankful to have met you, your husband, and children. 💙 #MADD

After ten years, three of which were spent dealing with seizures which I'm still not sure what exactly caused them, Randy passed away from cardiac arrest. She was the perfect first cat and even though she's gone, I still constantly think of her. She taught me that one cat always leads to another and so many lessons on love, hardship and when to say goodbye. I am so glad I started this account with Randy and got to share so many wonderful photos of her and now of Mimi. ❤

Establish 96’
Triumphs, Adversities, and Evolution.
Two decades. Every stage of my life includes this woman. Elementary, Middle and High school and afterwards. There were other experiences & relationships in between but we always wondered back to one another. She was my first kiss - a dare my older sister created during our elementary school graduation party. The first girl I bought flowers for. My first date where I paid for the movie tickets in collected change I saved. I was always proud to show her off and at times possessive, like the one time I called the cops on a high school party because I was on house arrest and didn’t want her there 😂. I was her bad boy and she was my shotgun. Through thick & thin. Nothing has changed, only now just living in a grown up world. We chose one another to walk through this journey we call Life. Through the beautiful calm waters as well as the deep and rough that we just got through. No matter what, we stayed fighting, even at times where both wanted to throw in the towel. Only to be rewarded in the end with another level of awareness, wisdom, gratitude and love for one another 💯🙌🏻
Battle Tested & Approved ⚔️✔️
My Wife, I got you. I love you. Always.

On Sunday morning in Houston, a gunman opened fire on her family’s car, killing Jazmine and injuring her mother and others. He’s described as a bearded white man in his 40s, driving a red or maroon truck. There is a reward for information leading to the arrest of her killer. Please contact Houston PD if you have any information that can help, and please remember that these tragedies are all too common. Black people are not safe in America because of the lasting legacy of white supremacy. We MUST do better. Jazmine deserved so much more than this.

I’m still in disbelief about the phone call I received from the emergency vet on Friday night while at work for an event. Our beautiful girl Miff had gotten out and been hit by a car. As I spoke to them she was in cardiac arrest and didn’t make it. We are absolutely gutted but very thankful for the lovely person who took her to the vet and to the vets for doing what they could. 💔 @melfheide
