This specifically refers to a hand striking the side of a person’s face, tells quite a different story when placed in it’s proper historical context. In Jesus’s time, striking someone of a lower class ( a servant) with the back of the hand was used to assert authority and dominance. If the persecuted person “turned the other cheek,” the discipliner was faced with a dilemma. The left hand was used for unclean purposes, so a back-hand strike on the opposite cheek would not be performed. Another alternative would be a slap with the open hand as a challenge or to punch the person, but this was seen as a statement of equality. Thus, by turning the other cheek the persecuted was in effect putting an end to the behavior or if the slapping continued the person would lawfully be deemed equal and have to be released as a servant/slave.
THAT makes a lot more sense, now, thank you.

srsly, in all honesty with the looks that Killian and Emma are giving each other in the promo, no body, not anyone can understand or get in between that damn strong connection they have towards each other. that small glimpse of a scene totally feels like it’s only the two of them in the world.

Gadge Week → Day 2: Lonely
They’d been in District 13 for 3 weeks, whilst Gale might have a place to stay with his whole family, Madge was by herself. There’s only so much she could take. She would follow the schedule they gave her but she still felt so alone, like she had no one. Gale told her otherwise.
Honestly one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen ever
