Hi, I have been a member for a long time, in fact, I met someone special the very day I joined, more than 13 years ago. And while that's in the past now, my commitment to the good causes this site promotes is not, and never will be. I am frankly amazed that Care2 is still around. A place were people that care for others and our environment come together with a passion for doing good. And, sometimes even meet their future partner.
This is the finest place I know of on the Internet and I am a very proud member!
Love, Peace, and Light,

||I am a spiritually minded person (not religious) with a ton of passion. I am open minded, non judgmental, and have been known to be completely honest and say what is on my mind. I am very good at communicating, listening, being compassionate and understanding others. Love the outdoors, also enjoy music a great deal. I appreciate all the things in life you can't buy with money. I take all the moments as they come.

|Wild Fact About Me
||For 40 odd years I was a Stateless person. I had no nationality; nor that of the country of my birth, nor that of either of my parents.
||A person with a giving attitude has a positive outlook on the world. For, how can you possibly give if your heart is filled with anger and frustration? So already, you can see, that by adopting a giving mindset, by seeking to put others first before self, our outlook on the world will simultaneously change. Rather than seeking to receive all the time, seek to give, remembering that whatever we cause others to experience we will experience it ourselves and so much more.

||"If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never. And what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility!"
-- Soren Kierkegaard, Either/Or: A Fragment of Life
"Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor. It emboldens the blood just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fevered pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the Rights of the citizenry. Rather the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by Patriotism will offer up all of their Rights unto their leader and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar."
-- Julius Caesar on Patriotism.
"A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves."
-- Edward R. Murrow
"I believe in God, only I spell it Nature."
-- Frank Lloyd Wright
"The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity, and some scarce see Nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, Nature is Imagination itself."
-- William Blake, 1799, The Letters
