circumhorizontal arcs photographed by (click pic) david england, andy cripe, del zane, todd sackmann and brandon rios. this atmospheric phenomenon, otherwise known as a fire rainbow, is created when light from a sun that is at least 58 degrees above the horizon passes through the hexagonal ice crystals that form cirrus clouds which, because of quick cloud formation, have become horizontally aligned.

I am not Mike Brown. I am white. I am middle class. I am female. I am small. I am not considered a threat. When police see me they see someone who looks like them. They see their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, themselves. I am not at risk of being shot by police for existing while black. I am not at risk of being shot while unarmed. I am not at risk of being shot while armed with nothing more than a BB gun. I am not at risk of being shot for reaching for my wallet. I am privileged.
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged.

This is a picture I took from one of last season’s games (8/10/13) when the Washington Spirit won 1-0 to the Seattle Reign. Both these team had a less than impressive season and finished in the bottom two with absolutely zero hopes for the playoffs. Now, one year later, this is just a reminder that no matter where you start, no matter where you come from, you can make a difference. You can get better. With a secured playoff spot for both teams this 2014 season, this just proves that resilience, hard work, and nothing more than a simple attitude change everything. 
I, along with many others, wish the absolute best for both teams and I hope they know how proud their supporters are of them. Win or lose, we will support each team to the very end.
Congratulations.
