'Until We Could' Is The Tear-Jerker Poem Celebrating Gay Marriage That Needs To Be Heard

"Until We Could" is a picture of the love shared in committed same-sex relationships. In the beautiful words, written by inaugural poet Richard Blanco and narrated by actors Robin Wright and Ben Foster, is the bond shared between couples who yearned to be legally married.

Watch the rest of the video here and try not to cry as it follows five other LGBTQ couples and their journey to marriage. 

Where do I matter?
Where is the division line
of worth and worthless?

"I was stuck in a tree, 80 feet up, for 5 days in 95 degree heat. When a lumberjack tried to rescue me, I attacked him."

World War I left many soldiers with disfiguring scars. So American artist Anna Coleman Ladd set up her own studio in Paris and set to work sculpting new faces for those who had lost a piece of theirs in trench warfare.
Ladd started by getting to know the men: their quirks, daily habits, what their siblings looked like, the limited facial expressions they were still capable of. Then, she would choose an expression. For some, that expression would be the only one they could wear.
The Smithsonian Institution’s Archives of American Art has just posted a collection of Ladd’s papers online — photos, letters, diaries and other texts documenting her work.

This Sleepy Kitty Understands The Power Of A Blissful Snuggle

The cute factor of a catnap has officially peaked, thanks to this snuggle bug.

Underneath a veil of night
Underneath a veil of night and
Woken by a storm
Listening to crowds that howl and fight
Governments will fall

Leaving in a trail of light
Leaving in a trail of light and
Flying Iran Air
Looking down on every street in sight
Every park and square

From the only world I’ve known
I can’t stay, I can’t stay
Take me to another place
Far away, far away

Underneath a London sky
Underneath a London sky that’s
Lower by the day
Working someone else’s nine-to-five
For someone else’s pay

Living for a secret sign
Living for a secret sign and
Dreaming Iran Air
Looking up at every passing flight
Every one a prayer
