In October of 1992, Sinead O'Connor appeared on Saturday Night Live. In one of her two musical performances she sang Bob Marley's "War" a cappella. When she sang the word "evil," she held up a photo of Pope John Paul II.

Then she tore the photo as she sang "fight the real enemy." The act was meant as a protest against child abuse within the Catholic Church. Soon after, she appeared at a Bob Dylan tribute concert.

The story was recounted in full detail.

And then, Kris Kristofferson got involved.

Kristofferson even wrote a song entitled "Sister Sinead" that appeared on a 2009 album.

The song can be heard below along with video of Kristofferson and O'Connor's interaction.

Kristofferson continued to hold space for O'Connor despite the jeers from the crowd.

People were grateful to know the story.

Nearly a decade after O'Connor's performance, Pope John Paul II finally came out and apologized for the abuse that the Catholic Church had perpetuated for decades.

I don't miss high school or the people in it. People who seem to have peaked in high school also weird me out. How? Why? I can definitely tell you that life got much more interesting the older I got (my 20s were way more fun than any of my time in high school). If you were to ask me if I have any regrets, I suppose I would say that I wish I had been more assertive and stood up for myself more. Depression has a way of complicating goals like that, though. Let me tell you: It feels nice to be so much healthier than I was then.

When we are on the outside looking in, it can feel so obvious that a relationship is doomed.

When we offer advice to friends, family, or people oversharing at a party, the correct next move often seems wildly obvious: get out of that relationship.

Some people don't take breakups very well. And those that don't can sometimes engage in behavior that others might view as bothersome, unsettling, even toxic.

Others engage in abusive behavior during the relationship, a major red flag that some people might not take seriously until it's too late.
