Mandela fought against apartheid for decades, spent twenty-seven years in prison for his work, and was eventually elected President of South Africa in 1994. In 1993 he and F.W. de Klerk received the Nobel Peace Prize “for their work for the peaceful termination of the apartheid regime, and for laying the foundations for a new democratic South Africa”.

The Walking Dead escalated so damn fast. Why did Hershel have to die ? He didn’t do nothing but help people even with a missing leg…this ain’t even right & I swear to G if that baby died i’m finding the writer of this show & pulling a Sharkeisha because this unacceptable.
This season has been the best in my opinion, and the most brutal. But I can’t take it if Judith is dead. Thank fuck Michone sliced the governor. He is the ultimate scary, manipulative leader type who will never stop.

Guanajuato, te extrano.
Are you Team Peeta or Team Gale?
the media is pushing this love triangle so hard and the cast and crew are having none of it and it’s great
Katniss isn’t a piece of property to be fought over.
there is no team peeta or team gale, there is only team katniss.
Yes. In the books and the movies, it is very clear that Katniss is incapable of really romantically loving anyone because she is barely holding it together for herself and her family due to the oppression of the capital and the constant barrage of terror that she suffers, especially in Catching Fire. She even tells Gale (in the movie) that she considers love a luxury for someone who isn’t being hunted down. In the end, both men are necessary in her life for very different reasons, and are integral to her struggle.
