22-year-old cafeteria worker aboard capsized Korean ship sacrificed herself to save others

our hundred and seventy-six people were aboard the Sewol, which tragically capsized on Wednesday — one of them was 22-year-old Park Ji-young. She worked in the cafeteria, not as part of the crew. The ship’s communication officer announced to passengers that it was “more dangerous to move” than to risk a disorderly evacuation. Frigid water was filling the ferry’s lower levels, causing it to list hard to one side.
The crew didn’t stick around to help anyone else. It was Park who stayed behind to calm down frightened children and pass out life jackets. She didn’t save one for herself, and she told passengers that she wouldn’t leave the boat until every passenger was safely off and accounted for. "After saving you, I will get out," she reportedly said. "The crew goes out last."
"Park pushed shocked passengers toward the exit even when the water was up to her chest," said one witness.

I’m really sad about this terrible event and that this brave young person lost their life because of it, but it is SO important to note that some of the crew were really amazing and courageous people who did the right thing even though it meant losing their own lives. The captain is utter scum of this earth but this lovely human can be likened to an angel.

THIS VIDEO IS EVERYTHING

oH MY GOD WATCH THIS

This is so good and I can’t even handle it.
The only thing that would make it better is if it was higher resolution and had a fully detailed cast list with pictures of each performer both in and out of costume so you could better track your faves.

I gave slack-lining a go today, and wanted to upload the video mainly so Kari could see it. I did better than some of the other first timers, even the ones who were also using human crutches. Also, I love this dress.

That looks fun! I’m going to snapchat you now.

This was one of the greatest moments in television history.

This guy was the first winner and apparently there hasn’t been a million dollar winner since 2003….but I could be wrong. I didn’t do very in depth research.

I think this is supposed to be just really dark humor but it actually makes me very sad.

Make Me Choose: Hellfire or Out There

My passion for this movie and Quasi rings louder than every cover of “Let It Go” ever to be uploaded to the internet.

Disclaimer: Not that I hate Frozen or Let It Go or anything I just have lots of movies that I like way more than Frozen and there is nothing wrong with that. I really do adore Idina Menzel and everything she sings.
