#BLM #blacklivesmatter #whitelivesmatter #bluelivesmatter #nolivesmatter #alllivesmatter. Why do we have these messages? More importantly, why now? Let's take a trip through history, and see if we can learn anything about the answers to those questions.

Our society holds forth many as heroes, to be honoured, even worshiped. And while I do think that the veterans of the armed forces deserve respect, that scientists pushing the limits of our understanding deserve recognition, etc, I recently had the opportunity to converse with someone, that I believe deserve even more honour than either if these. I did not approach this person with the realization that they were heroic, I did not start the conversation to learn of their greatness, or even to seek inspiration for myself. In fact, my intent was to encourage and hopefully inspire them. Yet as we conversed, and they told me of things that had been done to them, things done by the very people entrusted with their protection and well being, I was deeply impressed. This person is not a new acquaintance, on the contrary, I have known them for years. And I know them well enough to attest to the truth of what they shared with me. They have been the recipients of unmentionable actions, by other humans, as I mentioned before, the very people that they should be able to trust most. While this is very saddening, even heartbreaking, unfortunately, it is not uncommon. Abusive parents abound, abusive siblings, relatives, etc. The person in question had been dealt these unthinkable acts from a young age, even now, is barely more than a child. It wasn't until we had been conversing for some time that the heroism became apparent. One small phrase, seemingly insignificant. After telling me, not in detail, but enough that I understood, of some if the things that had been done to them, they made the statement that is the inspiration for this writing. "I love them" I cannot claim that that is the exact words used. But that was the message. And it was even stronger than that. "I love them, and I forgive them". Will this person ever have a statue, or memorial, or even a stretch of highway named after them? Highly unlikely. But, I for one, see them as a hero. Someone to look up to, to endevour to emulate. I hope you too, can be inspired.

+Nolan Roell​, the GPL affirms that the original author maintains ownership of their code until such a time they transfer it to another. Others have permission to use it, modify it, etc, but they do not own it, and the owner had the authority to take out back at anytime. The link with this demonstrates why it is important to respect people and their work, as this incident ended in legal battles and all kinds of other mess.
A man in Oakland, California, disrupted web development around the world last week by deleting 11 lines of code.

99% of FOSS stuff is, bit of not, you would have to read the licencing details for whatever licence it is under. If there is no formally stated licence, then here in US of A at least, it defaults to the Creative Commons licencing

It's a theatre. Not much to say there, the staff is friendly. The low rating is because $4 for a 32 oz soda is highway robbery, and the theatre perpetuates that stupidity by not allowing competition for the vendor
