i love this photo because at first you think that she was going to get married but instead her husband to be left her, or something like that. but actually its quite the opposite. i clicked on the source and it brought me to an article explaining the story behind this photo, and shes not crying, shes hungover. her and her husband went to a football game on their wedding day, and got extremely drunk and partied all night. they took the subway home because they couldn’t drive. so no, its not a sad heartbreaking story, its a crazy joyful one. which in my opinion makes the picture even more amazing.
CAN PEOPLE PLEASE REBLOG THE PIC WITH THIS CAPTION^ AND NOT THE ONE WHERE EVERYONE IS SAD AND ARE LIKE “POOR GIRL GOD BLESS”

Earlier today, we trapped 150 men, women and children in tiny boxes in central London. Why?
It was part of a demonstration to illustrate the conditions faced by the people in Gaza who are trapped by the blockade. The destruction of civilian buildings and infrastructure this month is the worst we’ve seen in 20 years of working there. The blockade needs to be lifted so Gaza can recover and rebuild - this time, for good.
Watch and share this video to see what happened and to join our call to end the blockade now.
