Poem written by an 11 year old Afghan girl

alternative opener to the walking dead

The Mayor of Atlanta was all over the morning news today trying to say he was not in any part responsible for what happened since this wasn’t Atlanta.

People panicked and this is the result when that many try to get home at the same time. Asshats.
