United in #PeaceForIsrael

Israel was attacked by the terrorist organization Hamas, whose stated purpose for being is to kill the Jewish people.

A New Look for New Groups
Newly created groups have a new design to match DeviantArt’s current layout! NOTE: This is just the first preview of the new Groups design. You will run into a few bugs, but it was too exciting to keep it unlaunched any longer. Your patience is much appreciated, as is your feedback! Starting today, when you create a new group, it will have a layout that matches DeviantArt’s current design for Profiles and the rest of the site! Groups are a place for deviants to connect over shared interests, hobbies, and creations. Try out the new Groups design and create a shared space for what you’re passionate about! Please note that existing groups won’t be migrated to the new design until early next year, and more details about that will be shared closer to when the change will take place. An Overview of What’s New The new design for Groups is adaptable—you can view your group in dark, light, or green theme, and the group’s appearance will change to match your theme of choice.

Eternal by EdenSilence, literature
Recognize and acknowledge your past. Realize and ground yourself in the present. Take in all the pain and suffering from the you before. Breathe and be mindful that you're still here. You are much more powerful than you think. Much more resilient than you can comprehend. Your past survived, so will your present. As your future self look back at the you, now.
