I can only pour myself out, when Christ has poured Himself in; I can only carry the cross, when Christ has taken it along with me; and I can only walk on the water in faith, when Christ has called me to Him.

So why do I think I am alone in my sorrow? When He has been with me all along. I must give Him my weighed down soul for Him to make me whole, and in that surrender I know that I am home; the only home that my soul will ever know.

52 years ago, at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis, second-in-command Vasilli Arkhipov of the Soviet submarine B-59 refused to agree with his Captain’s order to launch nuclear torpedos against US warships and setting off what might well have been a terminal superpower nuclear war.
The US had been dropping depth charges near the submarine in an attempt to force it to surface, unaware it was carrying nuclear arms. The Soviet officers, who had lost radio contact with Moscow, concluded that World War 3 had begun, and 2 of the officers agreed to ‘blast the warships out of the water’. Arkhipov refused to agree – unanimous consent of 3 officers was required and thanks to him, the world was saved from being scarred badly.
His story is finally being told the BBC is airing a documentary on it.

might just save the god damn world.

The Disney Channel used to air these little shorts about geniuses and historical people. At the end Genie would say, “Great minds don’t think alike. They think for themselves.”

That quote deserved to be bolded.


Isn’t this the plot of Red October??? Denzel Washington is def the closest casting to a Russian sub officer..
