#ForFreya I am so proud to call this my Luther family. A rag tag bunch, a mish-mash pack, (*insert other old lady expressions here*) females, scholars, athletes, and lovers of the game. Wow. Thank you for another incredible season & for the ceaseless love through and through. I’m going to miss you so much this spring but can’t wait to watch you kill it at #nattys 💕😬 #itcouldhappen
#Parthenon of #books#parthenonofbooks
The Parthenon has been recreated in Germany entirely out of banned books.
The Parthenon of Books is the brainchild of Marta Minujín, an Argentine conceptual artist who is calling on the public to donate as many as 100,000 currently or once-banned books for the installation. When it’s complete, it will be erected in Kassel, Germany’s Friedrichsplatz Park, where Nazi party members burned an estimated 2,000 books on May 19, 1933, during the so-called “Aktion wider den undeutschen Geist” (Campaign against the Un-German Spirit). Friedrichsplatz wasn’t the only place where books were burned in Germany. Rather, books were collected and turned into burning pyres all over the country throughout May 1933 in a series of actions by right-wing students and Nazi party members aimed at annihilating “un-German” books that contained anti-nationalist, Jewish, or “decadent” rhetoric.
Among the books burned during the so-called “Action Against the Un-German Spirit” were works like Erich Maria Remarque’s World I novel All Quiet on the Western Front and books by Helen Keller, who responded to the act with a blistering letter to the students of Germany. “History has taught you nothing if you think you can kill ideas,” Keller wrote. “You can burn my books and the books of the best minds in Europe, but the ideas in them have seeped through a million channels and will continue to quicken other minds.” Excerpted from #EMKKUxa278JedBhA.99

If we could all just take life one day at a time and enjoy the moments that make up every day and love the people we are with and stop stressing about money and kids and relationships and genuinely focus on being happy and helping others...oh what a wonderful world it could be. #itcouldhappen
