Whole Text: I was 13 when the black parade album was released and my dad was slowly dying of cancer. I knew he was sick but I don’t think he had told me it was terminal cancer yet, but I do remember he’d wake me up with my chemical romance videos every day since they gave me the strength to fight my mental illnesses and go to school. I remember when he told me MCR was gonna be coming to a city near us on the black parade tour of ‘07 and I remember watching (while screaming and hopping around like mad) while he ordered the tickets online, one for me, one for a friend, and one for him.

I remember when they played cancer Gerard sent a shout out to everyone there who was suffering from or who had family suffering from the horrible disease and my dad just smiled and cried, and while I didn’t know why at the time, I thank him for that shoutout that made my dad feel brave and special and cared for by his daughters heroes.

I also remember that I was up in the balcony on the far stage right and I was blowing Gerard kisses like mad and screaming in joy and he actually saw me, and dramatically blew me a kiss and pointed at me, the only fan in that area, so I knew it was for me.

Thank you, Gerard, for making a very sad, very scared teenaged girl feel special and brave. Thank you My Chemical Romance for giving me so much of my strength. I’m alive today and fighting to live and flourish with my mental illnesses largely thanks to your work.

Thank you for giving me one of the last and best memories I have with my beloved dad

Hey! I submitted this! This is my story of one of the absolute best nights of my life (behind the night I got engaged and the night I got married)

Here’s a chunk of the reason I love Gerard Way and My Chemical Romance so much!

I love this Buggy

99-Year-Old Lady Sews A Dress A Day For Children In Need 

Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.

Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.

Today Also Marks the Anniversary of Emmett Till’s Murder

On August 28, 1955—eight years before the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom—Emmett Till was murdered in Money, Mississippi for allegedly flirting with a white store clerk, Carolyn Bryant.

Bryant’s husband, Roy, and his half brother J. W.  Milam kidnapped the 14-year-old Chicagoan from his great uncle’s home and beat him, shot him in the head, tied his body to a large metal cotton gin fan with barbed wire and dropped him into the Tallahatchie River. Three days later the teenager’s bloated, mutilated body was pulled from the river.  

Till’s mother, Mamie, insisted on an open-casket funeral for her only son so that the world might see the brutality he suffered. Two Black publications, Jet and The Chicago Defender, ran pictures of Till’s casket. 

Despite overwhelming evidence of their guilt, the two white men who killed Emmett Till were acquitted by an all-white jury. They went on to sell the story of murdering the teenager to Look magazine for $4,000.

The horrific death of Emmett Till is largely credited with intensifying the push for Black voter registration in Mississippi and serving as a catalyst for the civil rights movement in general.

This happened 59 years ago. Some of your parents, and certainly your grandparents, were alive and reading the news at this time. 

Ain’t shit changed in 59 years..
