The world is a better place when everyone is able to enjoy the same rights and protections no matter where you live or who you are. The LGBT community is one of the last minorities that are still discriminated against and this needs to stop. No matter what the Supreme Court decides, I want to speak loudly and clearly that I support equal rights including marriage rights for all!
You can help more people be aware by adopting a LGBT Human Rights Avatar for your profile too.
In this world there is room for everyone. And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical. Our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery we need humanity. More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost.

My good friend told me her grandpa was missing.. I was so shocked. I remember I played badminton with him when I was a kid. He’s been suffering from Alzheimer’s and the disease makes him forget almost everything. He walked out of home the other way and never came back… They have been out trying to find him but he’s just disappeared. It’s so heartbroken. I can’t image what would happen to him in such cold winter days.. He’s been missing for almost half month.. They say the chance of finding him is very small.. I feel so sad. It seems all of a sudden Alzheimer’s is everywhere. My uncle just died from it. and a lot of old people are missing because of it. I hope more people can be aware of Alzheimer’s. I want to find ways to get involved with it. Yes I should. 4 months ago
It came as a shock that one of my co-workers past away at work on Tuesday and was only found yesterday. Although he was older than me, he was in good health and better physical shape than me, always active and keeping busy. He wasn’t a close friend, but working with him for 15 years we developed a bond despite our differences. And basically in an instant, he was gone.
I felt instantly affected with remorse and sympathy for his wife and children. The time we have to live our lives is short, and that time is so precious. I think we forget sometimes that we need to make the world a better place for ourselves first. Too many thoughts are going through my head to write more. I lost my best friend 11 years ago in much the same way and it feels so hard, so wrong because they and I are not so different. Rest in peace Hal. 5 months ago
Inspired by DoctorTeeth’s goal help DoctorTeeth raise money for sick children through ExtraLife, I decided that I want to do this. I wanna create my own charity foundation. Still have no clue where to start(does it need a lot of cash?). I will do some research later. 6 months ago

I’m thinking of starting a teaching project. To teach English to local kids from poor families for free. But the problem is I have no teaching experience whatsoever. I’m not confident in teaching kids. I’m a quiet and gentle person. I don’t know if I can deal with loud and aggressive children. Right now it’s only an idea. But maybe I should just do it? 9 months ago
It makes me profoundly sad as television news tries to sensationalize and monetize the shootings that took place in Colorado while others argue about gun control and other political issues. The focus on the shooter instead of the emphasis on the victims both injured and dead makes me sad. I cry for everyone who lived and died during this nightmare and all the unnecessary suffering in the world. 10 months ago
I went to a community meeting in Bellflower today which was collecting input about using an old Pacific Electric Trolley Line to provide mass transit between Santa Ana and Anaheim to Los Angeles and connecting all the in between cities.
Making the world a better place means having other options besides cars and freeways to get around. I support building a Light Rail line so that if you don’t want to drive everywhere you can take a train instead! 12 months ago
Well, I finally took the leap and reverted to a vegetarian diet. Did you know that you cut more of your carbon footprint by eliminating meat in your diet than if you stop driving? Well now you do! 18 months ago
