How to #StayOutraged Without Losing Your MindSelf-Care Lessons for the Resistance
It's going to be a long four years people. It's going to be a challenge we've never imagined living in this upside down world and maintaining our sanity. We will have to find ways to balance the need to not turn a blind eye with not losing our minds. I have friends emailing that they don't know how to do this. I've had friends email me in tears. I've had people taking steps back from social media because the reality of what's happening with Trump at the helm is too difficult to digest and deal with. I get it.
I am navigating through the gag orders, the Executive Orders signing away rights for people and land and seeing plans for the ridiculous wall trying to move forward. I'm seeing Trump's conflicts of interest growing. Each day seems to redefine crazy. Just remember, you're not alone. You have a lot of good people at your side. We're in this together and the light that's shining is coming from unity. This is an awakening like this country, and the world, has never seen. Take a breath. Take a step back if need be. That's okay. It's like diving in water. You need to come up for air, but keep on going. Take a break. Get grounded. But stay in the game. We need you. We need every single voice speaking up for the environment and all who are being silenced and marginalized.

I visited the Tiger Temple in Thailand & later found out it is under investigation for tiger trafficking and animal abuse. Read full story. In 2015 it was raided. More than 100 tigers and protected bird species in Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, popularly known as the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province were impounded by authorities following complaints that the temple was alleged to engage in illegal wildlife trading.

even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious,
awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself."

Read about life in the woods with Chippy & the crew...
What greater atrocity is there on this planet than to sell a human life and brutally force him or her into a life in the sex trade or endless labor?
And how dare we abuse, kill and traffic animals in the name of profit... in the name of anything for any reason!
