She Shared A Photo Recreating Her Mother’s Graduation Photo But So Many People Are Obsessed With The Family’s Beauty

Madeleine Tarin is a recent graduate from Chino Hills High School in California. Tarin celebrated her graduation via a tweet and people can’t handle how adorable her family looks. Tarin shared two images: one of her mother’s graduation, when she was a tiny tike, and another of her own graduation, with the family recreating the same pose, at Tarin’s request. Tarin spoke with mitú about her graduation, her viral tweet and what it means to her family.

Tarin’s tweet featured a photo of her mother’s graduation and Tarin’s recent graduation.


Tarin’s mother and father were 17 and 19, respectively, in her mother’s graduation photo. She admits that it was not easy for them to start a family so young.

“It wasn’t easy, but my parents have always had a special bond. They’re best friends. They had a lot of help from both of my grandparents. They had a lot of love and support from them as well,” Tarin told mitú. “Although their lives changed after having me, my mom was able to attend regular high school and went back to school right after having me. My parents still went to dances and were able to live a normal teenage life.They both agreed they would beat the statistics and mold me into something great.”

“My parents were incredibly proud of me because we’ve had many years of growing up and maturing together as a family,” Tarin told mitú about her graduation. “They definitely felt a sense of accomplishment. They feel as if they have molded me into a great role model for my two younger sisters.”

… and they look forward to the next phase of her education.

Tarin told mitú that her parents have always instilled the idea that she had to get good grades to get to college. Tarin says her parents encouraged her to attend college so she could be more accomplished than them.

Thanks to her parents’ persistence, her studying, and her athletic skills, Tarin will be attending Rider University.

“I actually used their story for my college admission essay. When I told them I used their unique story, I think that’s when it really hit them that I was growing up, and I really looked up to them and all that they have done for me,” Tarin told mitú about getting into college and getting both an academic and sports (soccer) scholarship to attend Rider University.

The emotional response to the tweet was strong and immediate.


It’s not every day you can see a family recreate graduation photos. ?

Grown men were admitting that the tweet brought them to tears.


Because men have feelings too.

And a lot of people were just showering Tarin with congratulations.


A few dudes gave the dad props for how chill he was in the photos.


Peak Latino dad.

And so many people were falling over themselves over how beautiful the family is.


Like, literally, some people couldn’t get over it.


Congratulations, Madeleine. Best of luck at Rider University!

Military Members Are Sharing Stories Of Sexual Assult In The Military Using #IAmVanessaGuillen

Vanessa Guillen went missing on April 22 from a parking lot at Fort Hood. Before going missing, Guillen confided in her family about alleged sexual assault and harassment she faced at the U.S. Army base. Her story sparked an online movement to talk about sexual assault in the military.

Women are using #IAmVanessaGuillen to talk about sexual assault in the U.S. military.

It wasn’t until recently that movements like #MeToo and #TimesUp made it clear that society was done with making excuses for sexual assault. Powerful and influential men have fallen because of their behavior. The disappearance of Vanessa Guillen is shining a renewed light on sexual assault in the military.

The stories range from inappropriate behavior from superiors to rape from fellow soldiers.

Women see themselves reflected in Guillen and her story. Former military women are shedding the shame and fear of coming forward to tell their stories in a public space. The unity on social media is offering women comfort and support as they open up about the most personal thing someone can talk about.

Some of the stories are absolutely heartbreaking.

According to a report from the Defense Department, sexual assault in the U.S. military went up 3 percent between fiscal years 2018 and 2019. The department reported 7,825 reports of sexual assault on service members. However, Pentagon officials assert that the change cannot be characterized as an increase in assaults. A prevalence survey on sexual assault in the military is conducted every other year.

According to some women, the assault and harassment started quickly.

The same study found that sexual assault at the 3 military academies saw a spike of 32 percent. The figures show an increase of 117 reported sexual assaults in 2018 compared to 149 sexual assaults reported in the academies.

“Our Academies produce our future leaders. At every turn, we must drive out misconduct in place of good order and discipline. Our data last year, and the findings from this year’s report, reflect the progress we have made in some areas, and the significant work that remains,” Elizabeth Van Winkle, the executive director of the Office of Force Resiliency, said in a statement obtained by ABC News. “We will not falter in our efforts to eliminate these behaviors from our Academies and to inculcate our expectation that all who serve are treated, and treat others, with dignity and respect.”

Some men have also used the hashtag to share their own experiences.

According to the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network, 1 out of every 10 rape victims is male. The study also shows that 1 out of every 33 men will experience an attempted or completed sexual assault.

If you or someone you know needs to talk to someone, you can call 1 (800) 656-HOPE (4673) or visit RAINN by clicking here.

Twitter, Once Again, Fact-Checks One Of President Trump’s False Tweets

Twitter, Once Again, Fact-Checks One Of President Trump’s False Tweets

It is not hard to argue that President Donald Trump is on the wrong side of the racial justice protests happening right now. Instead, President Trump has stoked the flames of anger among the people in the marches. The president even had the military violently clear peaceful protesters from a park to have a photo-op holding a bible in front of a church.

President Donald Trump tweeted another fake video trying to further his war against the media.

President Trump has been waging a war against the media since he started running for president in 2016. The president has taken aim at trusted media organizations and news agencies because he doesn’t like the reporting. The agencies have not reported anything false about the president and the reporters from these agencies have held him accountable. There have been numerous briefings when reporters from these agencies have angered President Trump enough for him to lash out and walk away from the podium.

President Trump will always hold two distinctions: third impeached president in U.S. history and the first tweet marked as false information.

It wasn’t that long ago that the country watched as the House of Representatives voted to impeach President Trump. This makes him the third president to ever be impeached in U.S. history. This year, he became the first person to ever have one of his tweets flagged for having false information.

Twitter’s policies clarifying the falsehoods of some of Trump’s tweets have angered the president. President Trump signed an executive order that, while it doesn’t do much to affect social media platforms, it does signal to his base. President Trump understands that his base fears censorship of conservative voices, which is not happening. The executive order was a chance for him to let them know he hears them.

The video is another example of President Trump’s failure to lead the nation during this time.

While the U.S. is experiencing massive protests calling for police reform, President Trump has not done anything addressing the crisis. Instead, President Trump signed an executive order that did little to address police reform and reiterated his support of current policing.

This considered, his using a fake video to try to make CNN seem incompetent is not surprising. It is also unfortunately not surprising that he would also seek to belittle the conversations of race taking place. It is worth remembering that the first time President Trump was covered by The New York Times is was because of racism.

Don’t worry. CNN had enough time to let him know just where he stands.

President Trump is falling fast in the polls with Joe Biden gaining a considerable lead. From March to now, Biden’s lead over Trump has grown by double digits. He has even witnessed some of his voters from 2016 leaving his base.
