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.
do you know how scary it is to acknowledge how strong your feelings are for someone and your brain is like “maybe you love them” and you’re like SHUT THE FUCK UP BRAIN YOU DONT KNOW SHIT

Pakistan On Crossroads - Deadly Clashes During Anti-government Protests
Islamabad, August 30, 2014
Since mid-August, the anti-government protests continue against the Pakistani government in Islamabad. Now they are entering a new stage as there had been first fatalities.
At the beginning of the protests the opposition groups marched to Islamabad to demand the resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. They claim that the 2013 election that brought Sharif into power was rigged and accuse him of massive voter fraud as well as mass corruption.
After holding more than two weeks of demonstrations outside the nearby parliament, the opposition leaders decided to move towards the home of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. The clashes between demonstrators and riot police outside the prime minister’s residence on Sunday left three dead and more than 400 injured as police used tear gas, rubber bullets and batons against the demonstrators what caused the protests turning violent.
Pakistani opposition leader and former cricket player Imran Khan called “all democracy-loving Pakistanis” to join the protest and “continue to the last breath”.
The situation remains critical, as Sharif continues to ignore demands that he leave office. Also the role of the military is still questionable, as there might be hints of a possible military intervention, but no clear positioning on which side the military might take action.
