Political Leaning Very Liberal

Eating Habits My favorite: Mexican and Mediterranean, Proud Vegetarian!  
Wild Fact About Me Six months ago I would have never imagined I'd become a vegetarian for life. I've never felt better!
My Philosophy To live happily doing whatever I like as long as my actions don't hurt others; and as the Lion King says: to never take more than I give.
What Gives Me Hope The possibility of a world free of wars, of drug lords, of special interests, of greedy politicians, of extreme poverty, of animals being mistreated or killed cruelly, with people respectfully taking care of our planet.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by It may sound a bit harsh, but I would give life in prisons for first time sex offenders. In my opinion, the world doesn't need sick freaks like those walking down the streets and having second chances. Plus death sentences to anybody who abuse minors and for proven murderers.
What/who changed my life and why When I was 13, my Mom (an amazingly brave political journalist and my personal hero) along with my Dad were kidnapped for political reasons and were sent to jail becoming prisoners of conscience. For the following 3 months I wondered if I would see them again and if my life would drastically change. They did make it through but my life did drastically change in many significant ways.
What Bugs Me poverty and world being so indifferent, Injustice and Intolerance, U.S. foreing policy and arrogance, wars of any kind, Anyone that hurts any living creature  
Passions Defendersof Wildlife and PETA, Amnesty International, My cat!, raising awareness of causes I believe in, Human Rights - Human Dignity Issues, earth and nature, Animal Rights and Rescues  
Inspirations volunteers at home shelters, rescue workers, good people making a difference  
What Scares Me Violence in any shape and form, global warming, War - Cruelty - Greed - Indifference, The moral direction of our society!, Religious Extremism  
Role Models my mom is my role model, Mahatma Gandhi  
Quotation When you find yourself at the end of all the light you know, faith is knowing that one of two things will happen: you will either be shown a solid place to stand or you will learn to fly...
