“You’re not gonna make the world any better by shouting at it!”
#this is what I love about Donna #she was supposed to be a one-off companion in a Christmas special #she was supposed to be annoying and loud and bossy #(Not many of us found her annoying) #instead #she imbued the qualities that so many ordinary people like us imbue #she wasn’t kick ass with a gun#she didn’t have technical knowledge or medical knowledge #but she wasn’t some young doe-eyed thing either #Donna Noble demanded respect #she did not expect it #SHE DEMANDED IT #furthermore she demanded it on behalf of everyone else#no one could piss on someone else while Donna Noble was around #she only had her voice #and sometimes it felt like it wasn’t enough #but that never stopped her#because if her voice was the only weapon she had #she would use it to change the world #or die trying #THAT is the spirit of hero #THAT is what makes an ordinary person extraordinary #they refuse to let others define their strengths and weaknesses #they refuse to give up #DONNA NOBLE #she was important LONG before she became the most important woman in all the universe (via irony-rocks)

I’m in on this feud and I have chosen my side.
MARA WILSON, YOU HAVE MY SWORD.
And my bow.
George Takei describes the moment when he and his family were sent to an internment camp.
"Another scene I remember now as an adult is every morning at school we started the day with the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag…there was the American flag flying over the camp but I could also see the barbed wire fence and the sentry towers pointing at us from my schoolhouse window as I recited the words ‘With liberty and justice for all’." - George Takei, The Daily Show (July 24, 2014).
