“If future generations are to remember us with gratitude rather than contempt, we must leave them more than the miracles of technology. We must leave them a glimpse of the world as it was in the beginning, not just after we got through with it.”

—   Lyndon B. Johnson, who signed the Wilderness Act into law on Sept. 3, 1964. (via natureisthegreatestartist)

“I’m not into organized religion. I’m into believing in a higher source of creation, realizing we’re all just part of nature.”

“…Am I happy or unhappy? It’s not a very important question. I live with such frenzied intensity.
Things and people are waiting for me, and doubtless I am waiting for them and desiring them with all my strength and sadness. But, here, I earn the right to be alive by silence and secrecy.
The miracle of not having to talk about oneself.”

—   Albert Camus, Notebooks 1935-1942 (via purplebuddhaproject)

“We must not allow the clock and the calendar to blind us to the fact that each moment of life is a miracle and mystery.”

—   H.G. Wells (via lazyyogi)

Elephants Are Being Hunted To Extinction... for Ivory

Watch our moving short video then take action:

More than 30,000 elephants were poached in 2012 for their ivory — at that rate African forest elephants could become extinct within a decade (a decade!). The US is the second-biggest ivory market in the world — tell the Administration to issue strong safeguards and help end our nation’s role in the deadly trafficking of elephant ivory.

Take Action - NRDC - Ivory

We must do everything in our power to stop the killing…

“Because the first time I got raped, my boyfriend broke up with me because I had “cheated” on him.
Because the word “rape” is considered a joke.
Because over 70% of women let their partners fuck them when they don’t want it.
Because 17% of American women have been the victim of sexual assault at some point in their lives.
Because only 39% of rapists get reported to the police, and only 3% of them go to jail.
Because about 13% of the rape victims commit suicide.
Because the first time I got raped, he put a knife to my throat and told me he would kill me if I said I didn’t want it.
Because when I wanted to report him, people told me I couldn’t because I hadn’t said “no” to him.
Because at least half of all babies born to minor women are fathered by adult men. (10+ years age difference)
Because I can’t wear a skirt without being told “I’m asking for it.”
Because when I went to a party when I was 14 and I wore a skirt and a guy kept touching my ass all night, my mother told me it shouldn’t have happened if I wore sweatpants.
Because a 16 year old girl who had her first orgasm while getting raped, had to watch her 34 (!) year old rapist go free because she had had an orgasm.
Because when my guy friend told me and some friends he got raped by a women when he was 12, a “friend” laughed at him and said he should be happy he got laid that young.
Because my 17 year old best friend’s parents let her 14 year old brother walk outside until 12pm, but she has to be home at 10.
Because a guy from my old school got raped by another guy, but because he is gay, they said it wasn’t considered rape.
Because a 19 year old lesbian got raped by a guy, and he didn’t go to prison because he said “he only tried to turn her straight so she would get accepted by her parents”
Because in some cultures, girls (and boys) still get thrown out of the family because some guy/girl sexually assaulted them.
Because they’re still teaching girls to walk faster at night instead of teaching guys they shouldn’t rape.
Because I have to explain why I’m angry because of rape.”
