Officer and Commander Molly Waters was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident in Washington DC.


According to The Washington Post, the crash occurred about 5:20 a.m. Friday morning at South Capitol Street and Firth Sterling Avenue Southeast, when Waters' motorcycle was struck by a car.

Waters died of her injuries in the hospital later on.

Commander Waters then donated her organs and tissues posthumously.

The Coast Guard, on its Facebook page, called her "an inspiration to so many and friend to anyone she met."






Following her removal from life support, doctors and nurses from George Washington University Hospital held an honor walk for the fallen commander.

"She ended up passing life on to other people in need," her father said. "It helped give us a sense of closure."






"To see all of these people, it's like good Lord, our little kid. How far she went in life in her short 38 years," said Marian West, Molly's mother.

"In the passing, she wanted to donate all of her organs and tissues and anything she could. It's typical Molly fashion."

Waters served in the Coast Guard for 16 years, and leaves behind her cat, two sisters, mom and dad, and step-father.

RIP Molly.

What is in the water in the United States that compels people to walk around in their homes with their shoes on? Try doing that in South Korea––people would be so mortified. I have a sibling whose apartment is carpeted from wall to wall and who walks around inside with his shoes on all the time, tracking in any manner of dirt and dust from outside. Egad! I get chills just thinking about it. And as an American, it's something I've noticed people from other countries love to comment on.

The brain a fascinating part of the body. No, its the most fascinating.

Scientists have said for years that we'll never know all about the brain and its functions.

So if it is so fascinating and so capable and awesome... why does it stall? Why does it overload?

Why aren't we all gifted with photographic memory? The brain definitely has a full storage issue. And we all suffer.

Redditor u/MABAMA45 wanted everyone to fess up to and just embrace all the things the brain can't handle by asking:

What can your brain just not comprehend?

Going to college is an exciting experience. You meet new people, learn about the world and the inner workings of society, and make lasting friendships. As fun (and expensive *cough, cough*) as higher education can be there is a reason that only one-third of the US population 25 and older have been able to complete a four-year degree program. It is hard and burnout is real.

Going through university was filled with both happiness and sometimes tears for me. I loved school and found my classes interesting, dove into extracurriculars, and had that perfectionist drive to get all A's... totally not sustainable. It hit me I was totally burnt out about two years in while enrolled in an algebra class.
