So let us not be petty when our #cause is so #great. Let us not quarrel amongst ourselves when our nations #future is at stake. Let us stand together in renewed #confidence in out cause. From the speech JFK never delivered. 

We are all people that can up for what we know to be true, it’s time!

Hello #peoples, we are in #sad times as a #civilization–our #oceans and #land are filled with #trash. Our #consumer habits are out of control and the #govnerment is watching everything we do, literally #everything. The most tragic thing is we are letting it happen. It seems that civilians are so side tracked by daily #life, we have forgotten what living life really means. That may sound redundant but life is more than daily activities of #work, #day care, #grocery #shopping, #friends, #facebook, #instagram, etc. 

Life is about appreciating what exists #naturally. Take a second to think about what exists naturally that you appreciate and then wonder, is that too on the brink of sad times… 

Here is from the guardian:

• 1.8m users targeted by UK agency in six-month period alone 

• Optic Nerve program collected Yahoo webcam images in bulk

• Yahoo: ‘A whole new level of violation of our users’ privacy’

• Material included large quantity of sexually explicit images

Check out this simple poem/image from our friends at wearenotrobots.org


“I walked into the store with 1 item in need.
I walked out with 1 basket full of wants.

We live on earth, not on consumer island.
Wait… they are the same thing.
No, no, no, we are taught that.
We are humans, not consumers.

We are not Robots.”

—- A poem that begs a question of, does being human = being a consumer?
As we all are products of the Post #Industrial #Revolution, we have be bread to #consume. After all, our core #evaluation of whether we as a #country are #struggling to #survive or living #abundantly since then has been wrapped into a mathematical measurement known as #GDP. We have learned to measure our living standards (or worth) based on #spending, #investing and #exports—all #consumer behaviors, not exactly all #human behaviors.

The trash will not disappear. We have to consciously shift our decision making to find ways to reuse the mess we have created.

The #coast is filled with #beauty. Small grains of #sand that end up in every crevasse, the salty precipitated air, vibrant spectrum of blues that cascade darker into the #horizon, harsh shades of #white as #oxygen fills the ripping #shore break #waves and a blistering ray of constant #heat as the #sun beats down on all the #land- 

then man-kinds #convenience store mind was subconsciously lead to #trash the entire place with out a care in the #world. Its time to wake up, the world is not a convenience #store and we have to consciously know and realize when we have created #havoc on the land and #sea. Please do a small step to change the world. #Change a small step in your #life and start limiting (with a means to an end) your #plastic consumption
