**The above GIF was made by spockemon.tumblr.com and they make really good GIFS just saying** My name is Dani. I'm Canadian, and a nerd. This blog consists mainly of Star Trek, Doctor Who, some Harry Potter and basically whatever I'm currently into. But there's a lot of Star Trek. Seriously.
CAN I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE.
I am a Canadian citizen.
I live in Canada.
I am a university student.
I am reminded every day about the issues across the globe.
And these issues are IMPORTANT.
THAT. BEING. SAID.
WE HAVE ISSUES HAPPENING RIGHT HERE AT HOME.
And they are NOT being talked about.
We have OVER 1200 Native American women who have disappeared or been murdered in the last 3 decades.
THESE WOMEN ARE ONLY GETTING A SMALL TEXT BOX AT THE BOTTOM OF OUR 24 HOUR NEWS STATION.
A task force has NOT YET been assembled.
THESE WOMEN ARE IMPORTANT.
THEIR LIVES MATTER.
Why are we not talking about this.
I think I know the reason.
This is all the information I know at the moment.
But that doesn’t mean we can’t start the conversation.
TALK TO EACH OTHER ABOUT THIS.
TALK TO YOUR FRIENDS.
ASK YOUR TEACHERS.
ASK YOUR PROFESSORS.
ASK IN HISTORY, POLITICS, CIVICS, LAW CLASS.
GET THE CONVERSATION GOING.
GET UPSET. BE CONSTRUCTIVE.
DON’T LET THIS ISSUE BECOME A FOOT NOTE IN A HISTORY BOOK BECAUSE I DON’T THINK IT’S EVEN GOING TO GET THAT.
DESPITE OUR CLAIMS, we are NOT a perfect country and I am TIRED of pretending we are.
We do not have a task force.
The Conservative government has failed to call for a national inquiry.
The UNITED NATIONS has CALLED UPON CANADA TO ACT.
Stephen Harper has avoided this issue.
This can NOT continue.
HELP SPREAD THIS MESSAGE.
Me: I wanna do something
Anxiety: No you dont
Slytherin wasn’t the only founder to leave a concealed chamber at Hogwarts— before her death, Helga Huffelpuff created a secret room which would help all students, regardless of house affiliation or purity of blood. It’s been called many things throughout the centuries; today it’s known as the Room of Requirement.
I accept this head canon
