I don’t really know this girl and it really isn’t any of my business, but I am a Berkley girl just like she is, so this hits home for me. The community isn’t that big to begin with, so when things like this do happen, everyone gets shaken up. If anyone does see her, please contact authorities so there will be one less missing girl out there.
I can’t tell…
This really is an eye opener about the environment and how it affects wildlife. It isn’t that long, so if you get a chance to watch it, please do so. It certainly made me emotional.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Today would have been Mr Rogers’ 84th birthday. Thanks for showing me how to rock a cardigan and always been a kind neighbor.
one time some dudes stole mr. rogers’s car, and it got into the news, like you’d expect
the next day the car was back where he’d left it with a note that said “we’re so sorry, we never would’ve taken it if we’d known it was yours”
I like to think they recognized this as a sign from god and turned their lives around
another true story: mr. rogers lobbied in favor of vcrs back when the tv and movie industries were against them, because he wanted families to be able to record shows and watch them together
he was always, always thinking about children, letting them know it’s okay to be sad or scared or mad and how to deal with it, letting them know there’s at least one person in the world who loves them just the way they are
and no matter who you were, no matter why you crossed his path, he wanted to know about your life and understand you and be your friend
I believe he is a for-real saint and I wish I could be more like him but it’s okay, I know he loves me just the way I am
Another true story: one time he received a letter from a blind girl who mentioned that she gets nervous sometimes that he’d forget to feed the fish. From that moment on, he made some comment outloud about how he was feeding the fish so she and any other blind viewers would know that he hadn’t forgotten.
Always reblog Mr. Rogers.
i’m actually crying you don’t understand
Mr. Rogers was the actual perfect human being and while I sincerely hope that there will someday be another as overwhelmingly good as him I’m not sure there ever will
If you recall this post I made earlier this week about my grandfather, here is the entire, infuriating story. Only a few hours ago I had decided not to talk about this, but it CANNOT GO UNNOTICED.
Last Wednesday night Emilio was taken to the hospital via ambulance for chest pain. His neighbors called 911 but couldn’t tell us where he was taken. It wasn’t until Friday that we were made aware of this, and tried contacting MedStar Harbor Hospital in Baltimore about his whereabouts.
According to Harbor Hospital, Emilio was admitted to the hospital at 2:27 PM and released only a half hour later at 3:00pm. So, here it is, Friday evening, and the man isn’t at home, he hasn’t been seen in days. We call Harbor Hospital several times (3, exactly). Saturday morning, we call the police and file a missing persons report. I recall the police officer returning to his vehicle and making several calls: Harbor Hospital, Mercy Hospital, St. Agnes, the morgue. Yet again, Emilio was nowhere to be found.
Picture: a feeble, 69 year old black man, confused and can barely walk. Speaks English but incredibly hard to understand. Carrying approximately 10 bottles of heavy medication with him and possibly around 500$. Let me also include the fact that he is a Cuban refugee, and not a citizen of the united states.
The missing persons report is filed and the weekend detective is on the case. He sends us the missing persons flyer which I promptly posted on tumblr (its late in the night already). About two hours later, and several phone conversations with the detective, Emilio is found..!
He was at Harbor Hospital.
He was at Harbor Hospital THE ENTIRE TIME.
HE WAS AT HARBOR HOSPITAL THE ENTIRE TIME.
He was admitted to the hospital at 3:00pm on that Wednesday He was never RELEASED, he was ADMITTED, but apparently, this was too much information for Harbor’s computers to handle, or rather, their employees. We are told now that he is in the ICU, with liver and kidney failure, along with a bladder infection. He is in a medically induced coma.
On Monday, my mother makes her way to Harbor Hospital to see him and speak with his doctors. She signs all of the paperwork to have him admitted to Hospice and crosses off my grandmothers name as Emilio’s emergency contact and replaces it with her own. This was at approximately 3:30pm on Monday evening.
Nana, my grandmother, had a stroke this passed October. She cannot speak. She cannot walk. She has the understanding of a child. Obviously, she is unfit to be Emilio’s emergency contact.
Two days pass and we hear nothing from the hospital. We call again several times on today, Wednesday, and lo and behold, Harbor Hospital cannot find Emilio.
He is not in the ICU, he is not in Hospice. We are told he was transferred rooms, but YET AGAIN, there are no records, he cannot be found. How do you LOSE a PATIENT from the ICU who is in A COMA? Please let me know, Harbor.
10:00pm Wednesday, exactly 29 minutes ago as I type this: Harbor finally calls back.
Emilio passed yesterday, at approximately 7:30pm. My Nana received a call on her cellphone, which is out of service, alerting her of his death. Let me remind you that this woman is completely out of sorts, she cannot answer a phone, NOR DOES SHE HAVE ONE. Now let me remind you once more that Emilio’s emergency contact had been CHANGED a day prior to his passing.
So, thank you, MedStar Harbor Hospital, for the complete atrocities you have committed, the complete disrespect you have shown for Emilio, the complete incompetence of your employees, and the complete turmoil you have put my family though, not to mention the agony my grandmother will experience when she finds out. Whoever is reading this, please spread the word, don’t let this COMPLETE BULLSHIT go unnoticed. I want people to know what this hospital has done.I want to warn everyone. Please reblog this if you can. What other atrocious things could be happening here?
I’m sorry, Emilio Hernandez Lanusa. You deserved so much better in your final days, your final moments. You were an amazing, strong man. You will be missed and thought of. We will make sure everyone hears your story. Thank you for everything.
