I’m thankful everyday for the people that make my life meaningful, for beauty in all forms on this Earth, for inspiration, for compassion, for smiles that come from the soul, for the opportunity to always learn and grow, for touch, for sight, for hearing, for smell, for taste, for shelter, for clothes, for food, for water, and for a measure of inner peace. – Allison LaBine

In Defense of Freedom

There are soldiers that defend freedom and those who take it away. Thank you to all our veterans who fought for the lives of people they never knew. Thank you to the men and women who stand ready to defend our nation at a moment’s notice.

Today

Be happy for every moment you are alive, for every moment you are well, for every moment you are free. For in every corner of the world, there is suffering.

Today marks the start of the Namibian seal slaughter – 85,000 pups killed over the next 3 months for their fur. Maybe next year things will change. Thank you to those who tried, who always try to do what is right, especially against great odds.
