Why do we always chase money and power, as opposed to standing up for who people aren't able to defend themselves?


"The last decade of conflict has resulted in some 4 million deaths; an estimated 1,200 people die every day due to ongoing epidemics and war-related causes; some aid agencies estimate upward of 1,400 deaths per day," the Christian relief organization said in a news release.

   The pay might not be amazing, but the vacation and insurance benefits make up for it.  And working on campus is a lot of fun.

from Clare

sun shines out your ass

"In my opinion, the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you, the right person will still think the sun shines out your ass. That’s the kind of person that’s worth sticking with."  - Juno

   This is some of th best advice I've ever heard.  I think eternal appreciation of everything that makes up the other person plays a big role in successful relationships.
