Signal boosting for one of my best friends. 

Please share/reblog/signal boost/donate if able! 

Because every kid deserves to have a great book within arms reach and N. has provided a kick-ass library for them and this would be an amazing help to her classroom. 

ETA: If you enter the code CHEER your pledge will be matched. Now how awesome is that?!

A non Texas related but very deserving signal boost because my soul needs it.

Two Austin-area veterans were honored on Friday at Hutto High School during a presentation that also included a flyover of vintage aircraft.
Sixty-eight years have passed since Jim Farmer of Lake Travis was one of the young Marines who poured onto the volcanic beaches during the invasion of Iwo Jima in World War II. Almost 60 years have passed since Bud Farrell of Georgetown huddled in subzero temperatures inside a B-29 flying bombing missions in the Korean War.
The memories still leave the veterans teary-eyed

“I am pro-life,” she told a University of Texas at Brownsville crowd on Tuesday. “I care about the life of every child: every child that goes to bed hungry, every child that goes to bed without a proper education, every child that goes to bed without being able to be a part of the Texas dream, every woman and man who worry about their children’s future and their ability to provide for that future. I care about life and I have a record of fighting for people above all else.”

“This isn’t about protecting abortion,” Davis explained in the same appearance. “It’s about protecting women. It’s about trusting women to make good decisions for themselves and empowering them with the tools to do that.”

Anti-choicers are violently pro-life, right up to the second a child is born. It’s heartening to see Wendy Davis taking them on like this.

Mother Jones: Voter ID Laws in Action
