To fall in love with God is the greatest romance; to seek Him the greatest adventure; to find Him, the greatest human achievement.

If you have ever experienced discomfort during the experience of wearing contact lenses, this image of an early specimen is likely to make you wince. A video (courtesy of British Pathé) shows these archaic lenses being handmade and fitted for the individual use of a woman. The process required anesthesia of the eye, which is fortunately no longer necessary.You can watch it here:

Ferguson Police have dogs and shotguns. The unarmed crowd is raising their hands.

For anyone not following the Mike Brown story on Twitter: a 17 year old black boy named Mike Brown, who was supposed to start college tomorrow, was shot to death in Ferguson, Missouri by police while jaywalking. He was unarmed. He was shot 9 times.

Initial media reports claimed that an 18 year old black man had been shot and killed while fleeing police after shoplifting.

People in the neighborhood, including members of Mike Brown’s family, came out of their homes and began to protest, shouting “no justice, no peace,” and keeping their hands in the air.

Media reports claimed that a violent mob quickly formed around the shooting location shouting “kill the police.”

Spread this. Tell the truth about what happened to this boy. Tell the truth about what is happening NOW. The police and the mainstream media is painting him as a criminal, and his community as a violent mob.

SPREAD THIS. Don’t let them lie.
