Here’s Why Dreaming About Your Future Is One Of The Worst Mistakes You Could Ever Make

Graduation speeches are meant to rev up new, hungry diploma carriers eager to make an impact on the big, bright world, right? Dartmouth alum Shonda Rhimes (Creator of “Scandal” and “Grey’s Anatomy”) has choice words for her fellow Ivy Leaguers that would make Olivia Pope proud.I cued this up to the six-minute mark because that’s when it gets so good. At 6:46, there’s a special dedication for dreamers. Go to 8:52 if you want to avoid living in a basement at any point in your life. And at 13:35 find out why you are sooo lucky right now. Only got a few moments to soak up the goodness? 17:02 is a must see for parents or if the thought of having babies makes you feel all fuzzy (or a little dizzy) inside.

Vauhxx Booker, a civil rights activist from Bloomington, Indiana, claims that a group of white men threatened to lynch him during an altercation on July 4 near Lake Monroe, but he was saved by onlookers who intervened.

Video taken during the incident shows he was held down by a group of men who pinned him to a tree in a wooded area. Booker says that while he was being held down, the men threatened to break his arms, repeatedly said "get a noose," and told his friends to leave the area.

The men later let him go after being confronted by onlookers who gathered at the scene.

The incident began, according to Booker, when he and his friends were making their way to the lake to see the lunar eclipse when a white man on an ATV told them they were trespassing. When Booker and his friends continued to walk to the lake, the man on the ATV and his friends allegedly shouted "white power" at them, which is when things turned violent.
