Wild Fact About Me
My Philosophy "We have a choice to use the gift of our lives to make the world a better place."
Jane Goodall
Which is pretty much how I feel too :)
What Gives Me Hope So many young people getting involved in important causes is something that really gives me hope for the future of the world. And that so many people's eyes are being opened to what's really going on (on factory farms, and in general).
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Change all environmental laws for the better. And make animal cruelty laws stricter.
What/who changed my life and why Well this may sound odd, but I guess I would have to say the magazine Woman's World, because that's where I first found out about and through that website, I learned that I could make a difference in the world even though I wasn't an adult.
What Bugs Me ignorance, Chain E-Mails  
Passions reading, nature, environment, making a difference, animals, drawing  
What Scares Me ignorance  
Role Models mother, Oprah Winfrey, Jane Goodall, J. K. Rowling  
Quotation "Who can protest an injustice but does not is an accomplice to the act."
The Talmud

"The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it.

Through violence you may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth. Through violence you may murder the hater, but you do not murder hate.

In fact, violence merely increases hate. So it goes. Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that."
Martin Luther King, Jr.
