Wild Fact About Me
My Philosophy Morality is personal, and not the product of religion. If you believe something is wrong, all the world can say it is right and it still will not be -- for you. If it feels wrong, it is wrong. Do it anyway and you have committed a moral breach. By the same token, right is a matter of truly believing something is right. But... this is important... it is only right if your heart KNOWS that it is so -- pretending something is right and doing it anyway, is as wrong as if you admitted its wrongness beforehand. Our internal right/wrong meter is always speaking to us, but it is up to us to listen carefully.
What Gives Me Hope Not much! Climate worsens daily, People do not seem to care about anything but themselves.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Make climate change legislation the #1 priority. We only have one planet -- everything else is secondary to saving it!
What/who changed my life and why Nothing specific changed my life, but my ex-biology teacher Leo Welch inspired me to become the environmentalist I am today. I never understood how important activism is or even knew enough to be alarmed until I met him.
What Bugs Me Blind adherence to dogma, People who NEVER change their minds, people who refuse to listen, people who refuse to think  
Passions animals, environment, EARTH!  
Inspirations nature, animals, little kids  
What Scares Me STUPID people w/ power and money  
  Favorites
Role Models Nelson Mandela, Jean Pierre Hallet, Carl Sagan, my ex-biology teacher Leo Welch, Dennis Kucinich, Robert Redford, Ghandi  
Quotation Can you really ask what reason Pythagoras had for abstaining from flesh? For my part I rather wonder both by what accident and in what state of soul or mind the first man did so, touched his mouth to gore and brought his lips to the flesh of a dead creature, he who set forth tables of dead, stale bodies and ventured to call food and nourishment the parts that had a little before bellowed and cried, moved and lived. How could his eyes endure the slaughter when throats were slit and hides flayed and limbs torn from limb? How could his nose endure the stench? How was it that the pollution did not turn away his taste, which made contact with the sores of others and sucked juices and serums from mortal wounds?… It is certainly not lions and wolves that we eat out of self-defense; on the contrary, we ignore these and slaughter harmless, tame creatures without stings or teeth to harm us, creatures that, I swear, Nature appears to have produced for the sake of their beautyand grace. But nothing abashed us, not the flower-like tinting of the flesh, not the persuasiveness of the harmonious voice, not the cleanliness of their habits or the unusual intelligence that may be found in the poor wretches. No, for the sake of a little flesh we deprive them of sun, of light, of the duration of life to which they are entitled by birth and being.
