Pedro Zamora (February 29, 1972 - November 11, 1994) was a HIV/AIDS activist who died of AIDS in Miami, Florida. He was 22 years old.
Zamora, a Cuban-American, is best remembered as a cast member on MTV's "The Real World:
San Francisco" (1994), and was one of the first openly gay men with HIV to regularly appear in popular media.
As both a reality star and as a HIV/AIDS activist, Zamora is credited with helping to humanise those living with the disease during the early years of the epidemic by using his platform to speak out about the issues faced living with HIV especially within the LGBTQ Latinx communities.
Zamora’s relationship with boyfriend and fellow activist Sean Sasser's (October 25, 1968 – August 7, 2013) was one of the main storylines of that season of “The Real World" which included a commitment ceremony where they exchanged vows, the first such ceremony for a same sex couple on television.
Sasser, who had been HIV positive for 25 years, was later diagnosed with a rare lung cancer and he died at his home in Washington DC in 2013, at the age of 44.
Sometimes....we can lose sight of our why. The real, true reason that we do what we do. We can get caught up in a moment, a feeling, something that makes us forget our roots and that the people surrounding us and supporting us every day are at the heart of how we’ve become what we are.
Never lose sight of the deeper reason, the bigger purpose of why we pursue greatness. Why we enjoy serving others. Why we decide to stay this course. Find, remember, pursue the path you set out on. For them. Find something that resonates and let it shine. Take them with you on that journey as you go. @cambria_lmi @scottishtrainer Thanks for the reminders over the years. 💕
Had a lovely afternoon at Duxford with @kylxw 😘 Was amazing to see all the aircrafts that were used in the war and learn more about the history behind it. Reading stories about those who had fought in the war and hearing about those who didn’t make it. The soldiers must have been so scared but were extremely brave and courageous in everything that they did. We must never forget those that fought for us to live our life today ❤️ We are all so lucky ❤️ #duxford#warmuseum#soldiers#neverforget#worldwar1#worldwar2#bravery
In the Jewish quarter of Kraków, the area locally referred to as “Kazimierz,” on a park bench sits the figure of a man who made a remarkable contribution to the Polish resistance movement of WWII. His heroic actions not only aided the Allies during the war but remain to this day a symbol of inclusion, tolerance, and openheartedness. During World War II in Poland, Karski served as a resistance-movement soldier, carrying out special missions for the Polish Government-in-Exile and the Western Allies of Poland. Between 1942-43 he was tasked with a special mission to report on the Nazi atrocities of German occupied Poland. In order to complete this task Karski was willingly smuggled into the Warsaw Ghetto twice by Jewish underground leaders, where he experienced the atrocities first hand. He provided a detailed account on the situation, and it was on this basis that the Allies were able to receive one of the earliest and most accurate accounts of the Holocaust. Throughout the war Karski continued to serve as a courier, smuggling out key information and materials to the Allied forces. He met with Polish politicians in exile and even traveled to the U.S. to meet with President Franklin D. Roosevelt, providing the President with the first eyewitness account of he Jewish Holocaust. His legacy is remembered today with many honors, among them the U.S. Presidential Medal of Freedom awarded in his name in 2012 by President Barack Obama. The park bench with Karski’s statue is one of 7 monuments in the world dedicated in his honor. Upon the unveiling of the bench in Kraków in 2016, the U.S. Consul General, Walter Braunohler remarked, “ Today when global threats and national egos are on the rise we must remember heroes like Jan Karski. We can never lose sensitivity for the nightmares of the war and the lack of tolerance for differences in race, religion and culture. We stand next to this monument and honor Jan Karski who should be an inspiration for future generations of Poles and Americans.”.
Address of slavey By Samuel Wright-The Weekly Anglo-African, February 18, 1860
Slavery, O Slavery! I cannot conceive
Why judges and magistrates do not relieve
My down-trodden people from under thy hand,
Restore them their freedom, and give them their land.
The loud voice of reason incessantly cries,
Ye lovers of Mammon, when will ye be wise?
How long will misanthropy reign in your hearts?
Behold the poor slaves, and consider their smarts.
Upon the plantation they labor and toil,
Exert all their strength to enrichen the soil,
While the sun pours upon them its hot scorching ray,
Without intermission the whole livelong day.
Hope God by His power will save them at last,
And bring them as Israel in ages that’s past,
Out of the reach of proud slavery’s chain,
To enjoy the sweet comfort of freedom again. #blacklivesmatter#blackisbeautiful#blackispower#history#neverforget#neworleans#instagood#instagram#prayer#fightforyourrights#slavery

This isn't my usual sort of post but i dont care what people think I want to get this out to everyone. This is the only way that I get to spend with my dad this Christmas and it has absolutely destroyed me I feel so cheated that he was taken so soon. I want this to send a message to all that read it. Christmas isnt about what presents are around the tree its about who is sitting around it with you. I'm sure many would join me to say they would give anything to have the chance to see thier lost love ones again. And also its so hard to post things like this but i think it needs to be put out there that sometimes it is ok to not be ok sometimes things wipe us off our feet but soon we can battle demons and get back to where we was #itsoknottobeok#battledemons#nevergiveup#neverforget and for all those that this offends but sorry not sorry at all
