Sylvester Stallone’s Beautiful Tribute To His Old Dog Butkus

Anyone who’s ever loved a dog knows the indelible mark they leave on our lives — a legacy of devotion that lingers on long after they’ve gone. And it’s never too late to honor them for that. Sylvester Stallone, reminiscing about his best friend, a dog that not only inspired him to write ‘Rocky’ but who also played an important role in the film, revealed little known details about their early life together and the dog that kept him going during some of the toughest times in his life.

Stallone met the Bull Mastiff puppy, who he named Butkus after the famed Chicago Bears linebacker, in 1971. Broke, hungry, and living in a tiny apartment above a New York subway stop in Hell’s Kitchen, Stallone and Butkus became the very best of friends. It was during their time together in that flophouse that Stallone began screenwriting.

“When I was 26, totally broke, going nowhere VERY fast… I had my dog, BUTKUS, my best friend…”

Arnold Schwarzenegger Crushes Internet Troll Who Mocked The Special Olympics

March 29, 2017 | 2 Comments » | Topics: Life |

The Special Olympics gives those with mental and physical disabilities an opportunity to develop physical fitness, have fun, and come together as a supportive community.

The event is a great way for the over 200 million people with intellectual disabilities around the world to share in something positive and spread awareness about their lives.

It’s safe to say that the Special Olympians’ bravery and willingness to overcome and even embrace the adversity they face is an inspiration to their peers and most anyone who sees the amazing feats these people accomplish.

One such fan is none other than the former governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was in attendance at the Special Olympics World Winter Games in his home country of Austria on March 23, 2017.

The 2017 Winter Special Olympics World Games are currently being held in Austria, where the opening ceremony took place on March 14 and competitors from 169 countries gathered.

15 Beautiful Book Passages That Will Inspire You To Turn Off The TV And Read Some More

“Billy looked at the clock on the gas stove. He had an hour to kill before the saucer came. He went into the living room, swinging the bottle like a dinner bell, turned on the television. He came slightly unstuck in time, saw the late movie backwards, then forwards again. It was a movie about American bombers in the Second World War and the gallant men who flew them. Seen backwards by Billy, the story went like this: American planes, full of holes and wounded men and corpses took off backwards from an airfield in England. Over France a few German fighter planes flew at them backwards, sucked bullets and shell fragments from some of the planes and crewmen. They did the same for wrecked American bombers on the ground, and those planes flew up backwards to join the formation.
The formation flew backwards over a German city that was in flames. The bombers opened their bomb bay doors, exerted a miraculous magnetism which shrunk the fires, gathered them into cylindrical steel containers, and lifted the containers into the bellies of the planes. The containers were stored neatly in racks. The Germans below had miraculous devices of their own, which were long steel tubes. They used them to suck more fragments from the crewmen and planes. But there were still a few wounded Americans, though, and some of the bombers were in bad repair. Over France, though, German fighters came up again, made everything and everybody as good as new.
When the bombers got back to their base, the steel cylinders were taken from the racks and shipped back to the United States of America, where factories were operating night and day, dismantling the cylinders, separating the dangerous contents into minerals. Touchingly, it was mainly women who did this work. The minerals were then shipped to specialists in remote areas. It was their business to put them into the ground., to hide them cleverly, so they would never hurt anybody ever again."

― Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

17 People Who Have Died And Come Back Describe Their Experiences

(Sarolta Ban)

1. Atheist here. Bright light. I knew there were people waiting for me where the light was coming from. Over there. Absolute ecstasy was the feeling. Then I remembered I had a new born baby and was instantly back.

 

2. I had been very depressed for a while and decided it was time to go. I downed a shit ton of pills and washed them down with a ton of rum. While “dead” I was in a completely dark area all alone. The peace I felt in this area was amazing. I found myself talking to a mysterious voice who told me he was God. We talked for what felt like an entire lifetime. He told me my heaven was this dark secluded area where I could finally be at peace. We also talked about nearly everything that had to do with anything. He ended with telling me that I couldn’t stay because I still had business to take care of. Before I awoke he told me I couldn’t tell anyone of what we spoke about. When I woke up my body felt healthier than I have ever felt and I had this peace about me that hasn’t gone away. I feel like I can remember what we spoke about I just can’t put it in words. I equate it to trying to describe a new color to someone. Anyways I haven’t been nearly as depressed since then and I completely took control of my life for the better.
