During the scene when Mulan decides to go to war instead of her father, she decides to do it while sitting on the foot of the Great Stone Dragon. The image of the dragon looking over Mulan is repeated several times throughout the sequence, and the bolts of lightning strike at significant times whenever the dragon is in sight. When Mulan takes her father’s scroll and when she is praying to her ancestors, the Great Stone Dragon can be seen. It is also engraved on the sword Mulan uses to cut her hair and the handles of the wardrobe containing the armor are in the shape of the dragon’s head. The dragon’s eyes glowing in the temple symbolizes Mulan’s role as protector of her family awakening, instead of the actual dragon.

The reason Mushu couldn’t wake the dragon is because the dragon was no longer there. Mulan is implied to be the Great Dragon that protects her family.

CHRIST HOW DID I MISS THAT AFTER ALL THESE YEARS

Rescuing a terrified abandoned dog - Video - Follow us

My eyes are leaking and I have a lump in my throat. This is so so cute

what really breaks my heart about this video is that abandoned dogs who react so defensively to humans like that usually have some major trust issues due to past trauma—most likely abuse. dogs can usually tell what someone’s intentions are when approaching, and while they may not trust a rescuer and might back away or out of reach, they usually won’t feel the need to lash out. but a dog that’s been abused equates humans with pain and, being in a vulnerable situation on its own, tries to defend itself. this little baby girl probably went through some really tough times before she ended up on her own. but it makes me very happy to see that she’s got a happy ending.

A university president just gave up a lot of his salary to raise his school’s minimum wage

In some pretty awesome and uplifting news, Kentucky State University’s interim president Raymond Burse has given up more than $90,000 of his nearly $350,000 salary to help raise university workers’ minimum wage to $10.25 an hour.
"This is not a publicity stunt"


Black male excellence

This guy has guts, so many other people in power are happy to slash and burn other people’s wages if it means they don’t take a financial hit themselves. 

hey unt president!? HEY UNT PRESIDENT!? HEY UNT PRESIDENT!?!!
