Rest in Peace, John F. Kennedy….49 years ago today
Virginia Rappe (1895-1921) was an up-and-coming model and actress of the 1910s and early 1920s. She became a victim of circumstance in September of 1921 while at a party in Fatty Arbuckle’s suite in San Francisco’s St. Francis hotel. The only known happening is that she died of a ruptured bladder and peritonitis. There is suspicion, however, that she was sexually assaulted by Arbuckle himself. Not much is known about the whole affair, other than that Rappe was dead and Arbuckle was blacklisted, as well as socially outcasted.

Marilyn Monroe after announcing divorce with Joe Dimaggio
For these 10 years of joy, entertainment, sadness, happiness, excitement and love. I’ve learnt to love and to be loved, and this is something I will NEVER forget.
I wouldn’t be who I am If you hadn’t written the Harry Potter saga. I wouldn’t be a dreamy, caring, literature lover If Harry hadn’t come up to your ingenious mind.
Your imagination, your books, this story, EVERYTHING you created.
